Season Three and Baboon to the Moon Drop A ‘Flower Bombing’ Earth Day Collection

Phoenix Johnson

It’s no secret that we here at The Manual are completely obsessed with Season Three‘s heritage hiking boots. Ditto goes for its message of getting everyone, regardless of location or background, in closer communion with nature. But its latest collaboration, with bag makers Baboon to the Moon, is putting its money where its mouth is. The “On Earth” collection, which drops on Earth Day, April 22, features tons of environmental details, along with a hefty donation of 50% of the profits to the National Parks Foundation.

Headlining this limited-edition capsule is a special-edition Ansel Boot, Season Three’s flagship model, as well as a special three-pack of laces for boot owners who want to freshen up their look. The colors of these laces tie in with Baboon’s new Elemental line of limited-edition color-blocking and playful patterns, for which its popular duffels and waist packs have long been known. Additionally, two American Supima cotton tees and a thick organic cotton hoodie will also be released. All items are shipped in Forest Stewardship Council-certified recyclable paper packaging and include a packet of wildflower seeds, the latter of which is to be used in “seed bombing” barren ground, creating both beauty and sustenance for local pollinators.

“It’s been a long, long winter, so in celebration of Earth Day this year, we wanted to do something that encourages people to get outside,” said Season Three co-founder, Adam Klein, in the release.

“The cracks between sidewalks, along roads and highways, in parking lots — spots where nature has been all but wiped out,” added Baboon founder Michael Kushner. “What better way to celebrate Earth Day than by adding some nature back to these locations?”

In a wide-ranging interview with The Manual in February, Season Three’s Klein and co-founder Jared Ray Johnson spoke at length of a desire to get more people from all backgrounds into the outdoors, whether that’s in a national or a city park. After meeting in grad school at MIT, the pair designed a shoe patterned after Italian hiking boots of the ’70s and ’80s, but with the intent to market them to the city-dwelling man and women, including to those seldom found in traditional outdoor pursuits. Named after the consummate fine art photographer and outdoorsman Ansel Adams, the company was launched in 2018, and its signature boot is equally at home on single-track trail or a crushed-gravel walking path. “If you’ve got a good pair of shoes,” Johnson explained, “that’s all you really need.”

Beginning on Earth Day, the collaboration’s items will be listed jointly on both companies’ respective sites. Cop quick, because these limited-edition products won’t last and likely won’t return.

The 10 best men’s workout shirts to help you get fit in 2023

There are multiple things to consider when purchasing new workout apparel. You want to make sure you do your due diligence beforehand. When looking for the optimal workout shirt, functionality often takes precedence over style, for most men. After all, a minimalist cotton t-shirt is ideal, but it won't look (or smell) so great after an hour-long workout, especially if your working out, outdoors. That's why, in the past decade, some of our favorite activewear brands like Lululemon, Vuori, and Under Armour have developed breathable fabrics with moisture-wicking and odor-fighting technology that are now practically must-haves for any exercise gear, especially when it comes to making high-quality shirts.

That being said, not all workout tops are created equal. When it comes to finding the right workout fit, make sure it doesn't feel too tight or baggy around your underarms, your shoulders, or across your chest, i.e., the areas you exercise most. We sifted through some of the most popular brands to select the best workout shirts that are as practical as they are fashionable. Here are our top picks for the best men's workout shirts of 2023.

St. Patrick’s Day: What to wear (without looking like a leprechaun)
Look stylish while participating in St. Patrick's Day customs

Every holiday has its own traditions and customs. And St. Patrick's Day is no different.

We've rounded up our favorite gear picks from our favorite brands for this green-centric holiday. You don't have to go over the top and throw on shamrocks left and right.
