The Latest in Adidas Footwear

In the early 1900’s Adolf & Rudolf Dassler of Germany became the founding fathers of two of the most prominent footwear brands of our generation. Outside of the Nike & Jordan brand, Adidas & Puma have produced timeless casual & athletic footwear for nearly a century. Unfortunately for the Dassler brothers, there time together wouldn’t last, as in 1949 younger sibling Adolf would branch off & register his own company which would ultimately become the Adidas brand we know today. Although Nike has signed basketballs biggest names such as Kobe Bryant, LeBron James & Kevin Durant, Adidas has gone with a lifestyle approach by signing musicians like Pharrell Williams, ASAP Rocky & the most influential artist of this generation, Kanye West.

The Latest in North Face Apparel

In 1966, Douglas Tompkins began The North Face company as a mountain climbing equipment retail store in San Fransisco, California. Two years later, Kenneth ‘Hap’ Klopp acquired the company. ‘The North Face’ name came from the idea that the north face of a mountain is usually the coldest & iciest route to climb. 

 In the 1980’s, the brand added skiing gear to their merchandise. In pop culture, North Face jackets have been worn by many big names including Barack Obama, Kanye West & Drake which over the years has made their brand a house hold name.

The Latest in New Balance Footwear

The New Balance Arch Support Company was founded in 1906 by William J.Riley. Based in the Brighton neighborhood of Boston, Riley along with Arthur Hall were locally known to produce arch support for footwear through out the 1900’s. In 1960, the company would create the worlds first running shoe made with a ripple sole. Once the athletes at MIT & BU began wearing the ‘Trackster’ during track meets, the sky was the limit. In 1972, current Chairman Jim Davis bought the company & took it from a 30 employee company to the world wide brand we know today.
