Ransom Holding Co.- Combining the Outdoors With Street Culture

In 2003, Ransom was founded by Matthew George as a destination retailer renowned for pioneering a unique point of view that skillfully meshed his outlook and lifestyle to the brands and goods he carried. Offering an international brand selection, Ransom evolved into designing and manufacturing a modern collection of apparel and accessories that were available at its own stores and select retailers worldwide. In 2009, Ransom set out to design footwear. Through its collaboration with Adidas, Ransom created nine collections of footwear available worldwide. The designs showcased Ransom’s  unique Canadian roots and established Ransom as a renown footwear brand.

Spring 2014 marked Ransom’s independence in the footwear industry. Classic silhouettes  such as the Apline and the Field Lite were introduced and served as the foundation for the label.  Taking the product from concept to reality, Ransom continues to elevate quality, furnishings, and details. Using Vibram outsoles, Cordara, and other bonded fabrics combined with beautiful leathers and technical trims, the collection continues to evolve and elevate. Listed below are our favorites from their 2016 winter collection.
