A global lifestyle brand founded in Toronto, Ontario by childhood friends Michael Budman and Don Green, Roots blends the Canadian wilderness's undeniable beauty with city-style to bring you apparel, accessories, and footwear for men, women, and children that offer uncompromising comfort and functionality. Roots was officially launched in 1973 with the release of its 'negative heel,' which sold out in less than a month after its introduction to the market. The shoe's unique design was created to improve posture and provide comfort. Its success was unquestionable. Canadian-made genuine leather goods have lived at the core of the company since launching nearly 5 decades ago. ""Since our founding, our Toronto leather factory has been operated by generations of family craftspeople. Our skilled team of leather artisans are the backbone of our products. We are proud of our experts who handcraft our leather bags, jackets, wallets, and other select leather accessories."" - Karl Kowalewski, Vice President, Leather Product Development. Made for your everyday adventures, Canada's nature, culture, sports, and human diversity are a major source of inspiration for the brand. Within the Roots collection, you'll recognize iconic products like the Roots' Salt & Pepper Sweats' made with super-soft fleece, 'The Award Jacket' which was first introduced in 1979 and has become a symbol of Roots style, and the 'Banff Leather Bag' which is handcrafted with genuine leather. Today, Roots remains guided by 4 key principles: Community, Canadian Heritage, Integrity, and Freedom. The brand celebrates diversity, individuality, and self-expression through the beautiful products it creates. At TSC, we are proud to offer you premium goods from Roots, including men's and women's wallets, padfolios, passport holders, and more. Shop the iconic Canadian collection today.
