For the past 18 years, Jon Tang has pieced together small but absolutely essential bits of what he would ideally love to see in a brand, and in 2015 he founded FRONTEER. FRONTEER is a brand that is born out of unrelenting belief. This belief is that from digital to physical form, brands must be created to illustrate practical purpose. Purpose is the reason you journey. Jon’s purpose is the reason FRONTEER was created. It’s a brand that strives to incite discovery. It’s a willful attempt in helping the consumer discover a pursuit that absorbs them, frees them, and challenges them. FRONTEER gives Jon the opportunity as a designer and creative to really present a brand in its most genuine light.
At Topo Designs, we’ve had our eye on what Jon Tang has been doing over at FRONTEER for a while now. Being shoe fanatics ourselves, we’re constantly on the lookout for new and innovative sneakers. Jon’s passion for art and design has been an inspiration to us for the past three years and has made FRONTEER the perfect partner for this collaboration.
We’re excited to announce our newest collaboration with FRONTEER, featuring the Super Gratton Boot and Quick Pack. Taking inspiration from FRONTEER’s affinity for design and the great outdoors, this collection takes clean lines and infuses technical elements with durable materials.
Across the body or around the waist, The Topo Designs x FRONTEER Quick Pack is great for daily errands around town or a quick hike in the foothills. The roomy main compartment features an internal slip pocket, partnered with an external zippered pocket and bottom compression straps—keeping everything you need secure and in place for wherever your day takes you.
The Topo Designs x FRONTEER Super Gratton boot takes clean lines and infuses technical elements like a Vibram® outsole, water resistant suede and canvas, and raw sticky rubber touch points with hits of color. Named as a tribute to the first designed rock climbing shoe, the Super Gratton is a lifestyle interpretation of the iconic classic.
