The Roots' two founders envisioned a company that sold quality boots for like minded people who want exceptional footwear for the wilderness and for sports. In the 1970's, the founders did just that. They began the company focusing on shoes that were made for the outdoors, and expanded their products to include tough, quality active apparel and leather goods. The company made sure to promote gear for an active, healthy lifestyle with a conscientious approach to care for the environment. Since its humble footwear beginning, Roots now leather bags, jackets, accessories, natural fiber clothing, and home furnishings. All leather goods from Roots are made and manufactured in Canada. Roots lines include Roots Genuine Leather, Roots Athletic, Roots Kids, Roots Baby, Roots Home, as well as timepieces and luggage. Find quality apparel for your outdoorsy lifestyle at Roots.
