Patagonia green grass and mountain

 

I adore the Patagonia brand.  The company is about as groovy green as they come. Patagonia has in place a program called Common Threads where they take back old outdoor garments for recycling into new fibers. They have partnered with eBay, the world biggest online second-hand marketplace, to encourage their customers to “reduce, reuse and recycle” by buying their gear second-hand rather than new.

patagonia logoLet me add some perspective to this ingenious, eco-friendly initiative: Patagonia is encouraging their customers to buy consumer goods second hand instead of turning to their store for a new product. Really? Really! Their strategy is simple: teach people to fix things that are fixable and reuse what you can. Once all of those options have been exhausted you can think about buying new. How brilliant and green.

Planet shoes logoWhen PlanetShoes.com asked if I’d like to review a pair of Patagonia shoes I jumped.  A few months back I reviewed a pair of Jambu™ vegan boots from PlanetShoes.com. Being the kind and considerate wife that I am, I decided to share the review love with my husband and give him the opportunity to check out one of my favorite brands.

He went with the Patagonia Cragmaster. According to my hubby the shoes are super comfy. I personally love the red!

He’s been wearing them a lot. I noticed that they are going to be traveling with us very soon.

They even look great in a pigeon toed stance.

The Cragmaster is available for men and women. Technically, we could have matching shoes. The women’s shoe comes in a lovely Cardemom or Olive/Endive color.

But wait-there’s more…..Patagonia will be donating $10 for every pair of Patagonia shoes sold on PlanetShoes.com to The Appalachian Mountain Club (shoes must be purchased from March 19, 2012 -April 2, 2012 from PlanetShoes.com). The Appalachian Mountain Club promotes the protection, enjoyment, and understanding of the mountains, forests, waters, and trails of the Appalachian region.

GIVEAWAY

PlanetShoes.com has graciously offered to give one Groovy Green Livin reader a pair of Patagonia Cragmaster shoes (value $155.00!). They are available for either men or women.

The giveaway is now over and the winner, Kirsten K., has been notified. Thanks to all who entered.

  5. Cannot quite tell: Are these approach shoes? Bouldering shoes? They’re not climbing shoes but also not for casual wear.
    Do you know what they are intended for?

  6. Hi Julia, my husband is using them for casual walking. He said they are very comfy, but not sure I would use them for climbing.
