The Perfect Match

June 27, 2007

With all due respect to math teachers, but one plus one doesn’t always equal to two.

Sometimes, it’s three.  Like when two stars join forces to create a superstar.

As is the case when Patagonia teamed up with Merrell to create Patagonia Footwear.  Combine Patagonia’s green designs with Merrell’s extensive shoe know-how and you get a hip new line of eco-friendly footwear. Launched earlier this year, the inaugural line includes shoes for both trails and outdoor cafes – all earning their green stripes with features like recycled rubber, coconut and vegetable tanned leather.

Stay on track with Finn, a lightweight hiking shoe.  Lounge around in a pair of Shore Things, comfy thongs that conform to your feet. Or go classic with Patrol sneakers, the eco-friendly take on those timeless Chuck Taylor’s.

Just like its flagship brand, Patagonia Footwear donates a portion of its sales to 1% for the Planet, an alliance of organizations that support the environment.

And as you know, those ones can really add up.
