In 1966, a couple of friends who are from the San Francisco’s north beach area started the company The North Face. Initially, the company only designed climbing gear and premium backpacking. These products quickly gained a good reputation from outdoor sporting enthusiasts due to its quality and suitability.
By 1968, the demand for the brand’s products led to manufacturing and wholesale. The outerwear of The North Face was introduced by the early 1970s. Eventually, due to the brand's desire for innovation, the outdoor gear industry was revolutionized in 1975 because of its geodesic dome tent. It quickly became the essential equipment together with its insulated sleeping bags for professional and recreational campers.
Despite its initial success, the company over the years experienced its own share of shortcomings such as issues with stock controls, late product delivery, and over-ordering. Eventually, TNF was acquired by Odyssey Holdings which has proprietorship on more than thirty apparel and outdoor gear brands. In 1994, its ownership was bought by J.H. Whitney & Co. Currently, the brand is owned by VF Corporation.
Today The North Face has more than a hundred retail stores and outlets worldwide. Its outdoor gear and apparel are still the company's most popular products, but its footwear collection is steadily gaining relevance in the sneaker industry despite its limited models. One of the most revered sneakers in the collection is The North Face Litewave Flow Lace because of its functionality and unassuming design.
