This past weekend was the Outdoor Retailer (OR) Winter Market in Salt Lake City, Utah. This show is North America’s largest winter lifestyle and sports industry gathering with over 16,000 in attendance. The OR show features over 850 of the top manufacturers in the winter sports industry.
Late last year, Gearist proudly named SOLE Footwear as one of it’s Gear of the Year recipients (Gear of the Year: SOLE Footwear). SOLE was an exhibitor at OR and at their booth, with each pair of shoes (including some new gear!) was a quote from their our write up! Everyone at Gearist is pumped about being represented in such a big way at the OR show. Special thanks to SOLE and to Backbone Media for sending along the great picture below!
Born and raised in the great state of Virginia, Brandon is a former opera singer (true story) who’s had the outdoors flowing through his veins since day one. Brandon now lives in Colorado with his daughter Sydney (AKA, Baby Gearist).
