Any time J.Crew and New Balance team up it’s worthy of mention, as every pair of sneakers the two brands have collaborated on have been on our Want list the second they hit shelves. The latest collection is no different, only this time there’s an added reason to toss them on your feet. The J.Crew and New Balance National Parks Pack is inspired by America’s National Parks and ten bucks from the sale of each pair will be donated to the National Park Foundation. The sneakers come in two different colorways. The first boast brown suede uppers meant to mimic Death Valley. The second are colder, with a variety of blues echoing the water and ice at Crater Lake. Both get the thumbs up in our book, and buying a pair does a little bit of good.

As much as we love watches with dozens of complications and functions, there’s something to be said for a simple and understated design. The Nixon Patrol watch is a modern interpretation of classic designs that has everything you need and nothing you don’t. Made with a no-nonsense 42mm stainless case, a rock-solid Miyota quartz movement and a stainless 3-link bracelet, it’s as clean and slim as it is durable and attractive. Add in the bold indices on the face to complete the sleek and stylish look. This is the watch for the makers and doers.
