Our Story

 Our Story Timeline


“A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play; his labor and his leisure; his mind and his body; his education and his recreation. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing, and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing. To himself, he always appears to be doing both.”
- LP Jacks


Our Pillars

We strive to blend the spirit of adventure and travel with a deeply rooted love for the planet. We will always provide you with the best apparel that you can feel great about wearing for two reasons: incredible USA craftsmanship and the Footy Initiative.

The more we grow, the more we give back through the Footy Initiative, whether to ecological restoration programs or educating our future on how to carry on our green legacy. Every purchase helps us expand the natural world to explore.

We want to help you Get Your Foot Out The Door and into the beautiful world around us.

The three pillars of Footy Intl are:

  • We keep it at the forefront of our operations to cause as little environmental impact everywhere possible.
  • Our products are ethically Made in America.
  • We fund sustainable initiatives through the Footy Initiative.
  • We will become a Certified B Corporation.
  • We strive to be transparent in all that we do so that you can know exactly where your dollars are going.
  • Every apparel item has a Transparency section that tells exactly where the fabrics came from, where it was designed, where it was manufactured, and how it will be sent.
  • If you have any questions about our processes, our facilities, or anything else, we will always have an answer for you.
    • Our community of our suppliers, our members, and our customers are what we call the Footy Intl Family. We hold our Family accountable to one unifying goal: Live a sustainable life while experiencing the world to the fullest.
    • We cannot accomplish sustainability on this planet alone, and that’s why it will take a community of doers to take action that will inspire others to join the solution.
    • Real change and progress is started by local groups of people and not large corporations or governments, so we're starting with us.
    • The more that we can hold our partners accountable and encourage our customers to hold us accountable, the better.
