It’s unsurprising that Farm to Feet is doing something to celebrate National Public Lands Day on Saturday, September 30 — a day on which we can visit our glorious national parks for free (or better yet, volunteer in them). After all, this superior sock company is as American as apple pie. Everything, from the wool in the socks to the ink on the packaging, is made in the United States. This week, the company offering a limited edition pair of socks commemorating Bears Ears National Monument in Utah, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to conservation efforts.

The design evokes the beauty and majesty of Bears Ears, complete with a #SaveBearsEars slogan. The socks, available in “Monument Blue” or “SacRed,” cost $25 per pair (which includes shipping) and all of that — that’s right, every single penny — will go straight to the Conservation Alliance, which works tirelessly to protect our public lands.

Bears Ears, a pair of mesas in Utah, are scared to a number of Native American tribes, including the Navajo, Hopi, Uintah, Ouray Ute, and Zuni. The park is home to over 100,000 sites of cultural and archaeological significance. Just before he left office, former president Barack Obama created the Bears Ears National Monument, protecting 1.35 million acres of land and stimulating the economy in one of Utah’s poorer counties.

The current administration is considering reducing protected lands and reopening them to commercial logging, cattle, and fishing. Bears Ears found itself in the crosshairs when Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke purportedly suggested slashing its size by over 1 million acres, which ignited backlash and inspired a coalition led by the Navajo Nation.

These socks from Farm to Feet benefit more than just Bears Ears since the entire supply chain is American. The Merino wool comes from ranchers in the American Sheep Industry and nylon and spandex are both made here in the States. The ingredients head to Mount Airy, North Carolina, where they’re assembled into the best damn hiking, hunting, snow sport, equestrian, tactical, and everyday socks. Your feet are cocooned in the perfect amount of compression, stretching from the Achilles tendon down through your arches. Plenty of cushioning and a lack of toe seams keep everything warm, cool, and dry at the same time.

One of the more amazing things about the United States is our national parks. They define our spirit, our history, and our love of the land. So this National Public Lands Day, pull on your new favorite pair Farm to Feet socks and support uniquely important monuments like Bears Ears — then go find some wild adventure in our parks.

And, maybe, take action to protect Bears Ears too.

These two-tone Omega Speedmaster Moonwatches go full on ’80s (and we love it)
Omega launches a two-tone gold Speedmaster Moonwatch
Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch bi-color

Omega watches have launched a bi-color Speedmaster Moonwatch in 18-karat Moonshine Gold or Sedna Gold combined with stainless steel. Anybody who browses the secondhand watch market will know two-tone Speedmasters are nothing new, however, this is the first time that a modern version of the Speedmaster Moonwatch will be available in bi-color metals. The two-tone design certainly takes us back to the 80s and 90s when experimenting with precious metals and steel was bold but common.
Omega Bi-Color Speedmaster Moonwatch: A history

The Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch chronograph became a part of American history in the 60s when a modern version was provided to NASA astronauts. And, if we're really talking American history, Sonny Crockett certainly popularized two-tone watches during the days of "Miami Vice," as did Christian Bale in "American Psycho," though those were Rolex.

G-Shock’s limited edition Diffuse Nebula watch will have you seeing stars
G-Shock releases limited edition watch that will have you feeling like an astronaut
g shock diffuse nebula mtgb3000dn1a watch

There are very few watches that make us feel like we're traversing the Milky Way on our own little rocketship, eyes mesmerized at all the colors and galaxies, minus the Omega x Swatch Bioceramic MoonSwatch Collection that was quite obviously inspired by several planets. G-Shock is one brand that doesn't shy away from gradient colors or space themes, as the newest watch follows earlier models like the MTG-B3000PRB-1A Northern Light and the MTG-B3000FR Solar Flares. The new G-Shock Diffuse Nebula MTGB3000DN1A will quite literally have you feeling like you're millions of miles away, floating through space, or at least taking in the Northern Lights from a cold mountain somewhere in Norway.
G-Shock Diffuse Nebula MTGB3000DN1A

The new, limited edition G-Shock Diffuse Nebula MTGB3000DN1A is not only made for those who appreciate astronomy and the universe at large but even the occasional stargazer who is mesmerized by the beauty of outer space. This G-Shock watch captures celestial beauty with its wide spectrum of color, from shimmering royal purple to deep blue, reminiscent of interstellar gas clouds.
G-Shock Diffuse Nebula MTGB3000DN1A: Nebula aesthetics
Continuing on with the aesthetics of this new G-Shock, the stainless-steel bezel is finished with a gradation ion plating (IP) process which is what creates the gradient colors you see. The IP crown and screws are rose gold which looks slightly out of place but does add a certain warmth to the watch that some might feel is missing.

The best-selling colognes for men (because some things are popular for a reason)
Mainstream cologne is a good thing
mistakes to avoid whenyou buy cologne handsome bearded man is using atomizer nozzle with perfume

Who remembers going to the bathroom in high school or popping into the gas station when you were 16 years old and on the way to the dance for a little splash of Cool Water? Looking back now, it wasn't a great cologne. It was never a popular men's cologne with any crowd outside of high school. Hell, we at my little high school town may have been the only ones that ever used it (and used it very unsparingly, I might add). If that is the case, then ignore everything I just said and let's start again.

What makes a cologne become a staple in our society? What is it about certain fragrances that stand the test of time and seem to show up constantly on every man's shelf and sink? Is it the fragrance itself? Are we that in love with sandalwood and musk? Or maybe it is the bottle. Perhaps it is the marketing campaign that drew us in. Or maybe the simple spritz can take us to a time in our life when we discovered the smell for the first time. A fond memory that makes us want to revisit the moment every morning when getting ready for work.
