WHAT TO GIFT (WTG)?! OUTSIDE-THE-BOX GIFT IDEAS

WHAT TO GIFT (WTG)?! OUTSIDE-THE-BOX GIFT IDEAS

We wake up each and every day on a mission to make the most original, comfortable, durable shoes. But it's not about what's inside the shoebox ... it's where you go and what you do in our shoes, sandals, and boots that matters most to us. Seeing our fans outside with their friends and family is the best gift for us.

And we know you feel the same way about the gifts you get for the folks you care about. So we pulled together some of our favorite "pairings" to help you create your own get-outside-and-do-stuff-together gift boxes.

FOR BIG MEMORIES OUTSIDE

Cycling Sandals, Water Sandals

There are mega stores filled with fishing gear and gizmos, but we pulled together a few of our faves for tacking some fishing on to other outside adventures, like kayaking, biking, and hiking. With a telescopic rod (fly or reel) and collapsible net, you can fit it all in a backpack and pull out your gear when you find a great spot. A DIY fishing lures book can give your fisherpeople a new hobby during the winter, too. And, hey, a good luck charm can't hurt!

Our shoe picks:  
The original hybrid sandal, Newport, ready to hike, bike, paddle, and wade.

FOR EXPLORING OUTSIDE

Cycling Sandals

It seems like everyone is buying a van lately. But even wagon and SUV owners can get in on the vanlife fun and make car camping comfier. A portable solar kit is such a nice-to-have item for recharging gadgets. We love geeking out a bit with ours. Another luxury is freshly ground coffee beans. A manual grinder gives your giftee a little morning arm workout, too, with zero carbon footprint (we like the stainless steel ones). Speaking of carbon footprints, a carbon offset for an upcoming road trip could really start your friends' and family's adventure off on a positive note.

Our shoe picks:  
UNEEK is an all-around fave, and is so versatile for cycling, leisure and water sports.

FOR FLOATING OUTSIDE

Cycling Sandals, Water Sandals

Who do you love floating down the river of life with? :) Gear 'em up for real rivers, too. Whether or not they have a SUP or kayak of their own, or opt for rentals, there are lots of gifts that can make a day on the water more enjoyable. Hybrid sandals that protect toes while getting to the water are must-haves for us. We also know folks whose keys are at the bottom of the Puget Sound and whose phone was destroyed on the Tualatin River. Those are not makings of a fun day on the water. Being towed on an inflatable rainbow unicorn definitely is!

Our shoe picks:  
Hybrid water sandals Newport H2 and kids' Seacamp

FOR EXTRA TLC OUTSIDE

Cycling Sandals, Water Sandals

Outside is our place to recharge, and that's something we've all appreciated even more (and needed even more!) during the pandemic. The best care package we know includes all the basics for kicking back and breathing in more fresh air. Pamper the ones you love with the sound of Ponderosa trees swaying in the wind while they sway the day away in a hammock.

Our shoe picks:  
Slip-ons are the name of the chillax game, like Yogui and Whisper.
