Craft: In the begin­ning, Craft founder Anders Bengts­son spent an inor­di­nate amount of time look­ing at his under­wear. After heavy exer­cise ses­sions out­side his home in Borås, Swe­den, Bengsts­son would weigh his skivvies and use a mois­ture gauge to mea­sure how sweaty they were. He used his research to devel­op the ide­al lay­er to wear next to the skin—a gar­ment that trans­ports mois­ture out­wards with as lit­tle absorp­tion into the fibers as pos­si­ble. The result­ing brand, Craft, is now a glob­al leader in peak-per­for­mance ath­let­ic appar­el. Today on The Clymb, we’re offer­ing Men’s and Women’s Craft cycling, run­ning, and fit­ness appar­el, for mem­ber-exclu­sive pricing.

Cap­tain Kid­d’s Come­up­pance: Did you know? Of all the tyran­ni­cal scal­ly­wags hanged for pira­cy dur­ing the 18th cen­tu­ry, few are as well remem­bered in pop­u­lar cul­ture today as Cap­tain Kidd, who met the gal­lows on May 23 (that’s today!), 1701. Accused of mur­der, plun­der­ing, and gen­er­al­ly ter­ror­iz­ing the high seas, Kidd was hanged at Lon­don’s Exe­cu­tion Dock. But his­to­ri­ans now enter­tain the pos­si­bil­i­ty that Kidd, who spent the final years of his life fight­ing to clear his name, was actu­al­ly just a pri­va­teer who fell into ill rap­port with politi­cians after becom­ing involved in sev­er­al unpop­u­lar but arguably jus­ti­fi­able skir­mish­es. Of course we can’t ignore that those his­to­ri­ans might just be try­ing to throw us off the trail of Kid­d’s leg­endary buried traaaaay-sure.

My mom­ma always said you can tell a lot about a per­son by their shoes, where they go, where they’ve been.” – For­rest Gump

 

A fic­tion­al char­ac­ter, yes, but an astute obser­va­tion nonethe­less. One look at a person’s shoes and you’ll know who works hard, and plays hard­er. The first thing a per­son does when decid­ing on their next new pair of shoes is imag­ine where they’ll be wear­ing them.

So, we want to know: With 13 brands of footwear suit­able for end­less adven­tures, where will your next pair take you?

Skate (DVS, VOX)

Hike (GOLite, Vasque)

Run (Hoka One One, New Balance)

Walk (Jam­bu)

City Walk­ing (Bogs)

Moun­taineer (Kay­land)

Explore (KEEN, Timberland)

Beach comb (Ocean Mind­ed, Sanuk)
