Official boots of the AZT’s best friend!

We eat, sleep, and breathe all things desert and one of the only other things we love as much as being out in the desert wilderness is linking up and connecting with other desert loving individuals and organizations. So you can imagine how stoked we were to become the official footwear of one of the Southwest’s most beloved crew, the Arizona Trail Association.

 

The Arizona Trail Association (ATA) is a nonprofit organization on a mission to protect, maintain, enhance, promote and sustain the Arizona Trail. Perhaps you’re not too familiar with this epic trail, so allow us to fill you in on why it’s one of the most glorious treks in the US. The Arizona National Scenic Trail is a whopping 800 miles long and stretches from the US-Mexico border in the south all the way up to the Utah border in the north. Along this meandering path across the entire length of the state it connects deserts, mountains, forests, canyons, wilderness, history, communities and people. This spectacular trail showcases Arizona’s diverse vegetation, wildlife and scenery, as well as unique historic and cultural sites, and truly provides unparalleled opportunities for all non-motorized trail users.

 

As you can imagine, keeping an 800-mile trail in order is no simple task, and this is where the ATA comes in. Since 1994, the ATA has trained and coordinated tens of thousands of volunteers to help build and maintain this precious desert trail, and they need our help!

    • Buy Erem products! That’s right. We donate 1% of our sales directly to the ATA. Why? Because we understand how much work and effort is needed to maintain and protect the precious desert environments we cherish. We see the invaluable contributions the ATA makes to keep the Arizona Trail trail alive and thriving and we want to support them as much as possible. So essentially when you outfit yourself in a pair of the world’s most environmentally sustainable and best performing desert boots for a hike on this incredible trail, you’re also helping to fund the conservation of this 800-mile journey through all the natural wonders of Arizona.
