Spring is around the corner, and as the snow banks slowly melt, (or become seemingly permanent fixtures in some parts of the country) we are starting to get really excited about all of the new products being released onto the market. This week in Provisions we look at everything you might need to maximize the outdoor experience in the summer months. From shoes that don’t compromise function or style to jackets designed for the outdoor enthusiast that doesn’t stop when the snow melts. Don’t forget to check out The 2017 Product Collection or 2017 Interactive Brand Guides while your’e at it. Spring savings are coming up fast and there is no better time to dial in your dream kit.
Forsake was founded by two college friends after they left school on the East Coast to follow their passion for snow in the Rockies. The two quickly came to realize that their passions were putting wear and tear on their gear, and often found themselves forced to choose between style and function, especially when it came to footwear. Hiking boots weren’t practical for every day use, and casual shoes just wouldn’t cut it day-to-day in their environment of choice. Thus, Forsake Shoes were born, the perfect blend of style and function for the outdoor enthusiast that needs gear that will stand up to the rigor of life.
