The North Face fuses premium performance with rugged comfort, making it a must-have for men, women, and kids who love exploring. For outdoor adventure gear, clothing, and shoes, The North Face is a natural choice.
The story begins with two avid hikers who opened a rustic boutique for top-notch mountaineering equipment in 1966, but they didn't begin manufacturing their own backpacking and climbing gear until 1968. Fittingly, its founders labeled this bold brand after the coldest, toughest side of Northern Hemisphere peaks. It might seem ironic that their first mountain climbing store was near San Francisco Bay rather than at the base of some Californian range, but the down-to-earth and trendy location would foreshadow The North Face's eventual expansion into trail-running shoes and popular everyday outerwear like their plush fleeces (one touch and you'll be hooked!). In the early days though, the focus was outfitting for confidence in the most challenging elements. Their passion for innovation and discovery drove them to sponsor daring, boundary-pushing expeditions across the globe. Talk about product placement!
Form, function, and fashion reached new heights when The North Face became trendy with the top skiers and other outdoor athletes in the 80s. Bursting with vibrant colors matching the exponentially extreme nature of recreation and competition, the new lines in the limelight transformed the brand into a household name. Today, you'll find The North Face hiking boots, shoes, backpacks, hoodies, jackets, vests, and Denali collections are go-tos for everyone from prep school athletes and camping enthusiasts to nature lovers and casual fashion fans with an adventurous spirit.
