As a new generation discovers the beauty of nature in an urbanized world, Columbia aims to allow a more seamless move from pavement to path. “We see a movement taking place as more young people are looking to nature and the outdoors to find balance and recharge from their busy lives in the city,” said Peter Ruppe, Vice President of Footwear at Columbia. “To answer that call, we’ve created an entirely new collection of footwear that speaks to their sense of urban style while delivering trail-worthy performance for the outdoors.”

DID YOU KNOW?
Columbia originated as “Columbia Hat Company” since it started as a hat distributorship in Portland, Oregon. Frustrations over suppliers eventually prompted the family-owned business to manufacture their own products. Thus, the company became Columbia Sportswear in 1960.
