STIO APPAREL: What’s inside your outdoor gear matters!

STIO APPAREL: What’s inside your outdoor gear matters!

Bootdoctors has always searched for the most innovative creators of outdoor gear. We seek out suppliers who strive for the highest quality while actively caring about the earth and engaging in sustainable sourcing.

Stio is a prime example of the best of outdoor industry suppliers. They are actual outdoors enthusiasts who integrate their own love of the outdoors with production of the finest products to help you engage in mountain recreation.

Galena Gleason, Bootdoctors’ Head of Purchasing, combines her lifetime of engagement in outdoor sports with her knack for finding the newest, most exciting lines to our customers. Stio approached Galena to be an Outpost partner the first year they started working with independent retailers. She explains that the clothing line immediately struck a chord with her:

“I took a quick glance at the line and knew immediately it would be a perfect fit for Bootdoctors. The quality of craftsmanship, sustainable values, and reasonable price points of Stio all align with the level of products that we strive to bring to our customers.”

A visit to the Jackson Hole headquarters reinforced her initial positive feelings. Galena:”I was able to visit the Stio headquarters in Jackson Hole 2 winters ago. It was very inspiring to see the design process from a to z being brought to fruition at the base of the Tetons. The Stio team is made up of very passionate lovers of the outdoors and it is evident in the product that is coming to market. They truly care about the consumer and are designing garments to withstand the rigors of adventure and time.”

Try it yourself!

The new 2019 Winter Stio is arriving daily in our Telluride Main street and Mountain Village stores. Come try it on. It may be a perfect fit with your activities, values and lifestyle.

VALUE DRIVEN BUSINESS

Stio’s values include being caretakers of the resources they use to create products, including Bluesign* approved textiles; being active outdoorsmen and women truly in touch with nature on a daily basis; being on the cutting edge of innovation; and balancing work with play.

Galena was also “pleased to learn they have a strong environmental initiative. The Bluesign* approved textile commitment speaks volumes to the ideals that are driving Stio as a company.”

At Bootdoctors we also believe firmly in the value of walking our talk. We wear the garments we sell and can speak the truth about their value. Galena has put Stio to the test herself:

“I personally own 2 Stio pieces and I find myself wearing them constantly. It is comfortable, stylish, and amazingly suited to withstanding even the harshest elements.”
