A Collab Proposal



To many they probably just look like a mostly-worn-out pair of kicks…

Two years ago I bought my first pair of Boxfresh shoes. Admittedly, at the time I had no idea what Boxfresh was, but the girl at the counter swore by them, they felt comfier than anything I had ever worn, and looked good at the same time.

I decided to buy them.


Initially, I had planned on just rocking them as my city kicks, but before I knew it they were coming with me everywhere.

From Canada to Mexico, across the Grand Canyon, Bali, the Canadian Rockies, Europe, and dozens of places in between, your shoes quickly went from designated city kicks to adventure kicks to an anytime, anywhere kick. Slowly all my other shoes became relics in the closet.


Long past their well-worn date to many, they just looked like an almost-completely-worn-out pair of kicks. But to me, they hold the memories of experiences they probably shouldn’t have been on, moments that likely shouldn’t have happened, and a million tiny experiences along the way.


Now, as my soles wear through, my laces begin to fray, and my high tops began to sag, I’d love to chat with you guys and girls about exchanging a couple new pairs – swapping stories of my adventures, photos, and some social love in exchange for some new kicks.


Take a quick look at some of my moments below, and if you’re down, get in touch.

PS. A little about how I work…

In a world that's noisier than ever, I’m not one to just put up a post or two and call it a day. For me, it’s about leveraging the relationships I've built with my audience to connect them to your brand – authentically. 

Each collab is the start of a new relationship for you, and furthering the relationship for me. It's lending the trust I've build with my community to your brand. Because of that I'm a firm believer in only working on projects that authentically align with my city/adventure/athletic lifestyle.

You fit that bill and I’d be stoked to chat more.

A video put together for Chasing Sunrise's Hut Trip 2016

Somehow we have come to believe that if it's not far and foreign, then it has little value. Yet adventuring in your own backyard is one of the most overlooked and cheapest ways of having more travel in your life, and can happen far more frequently then dropping everything and flying halfway around the globe. It's not about looking forward to a single trip that eats all your vacation time and travel budget, but about learning how to make the most of those 48 hour weekends we get, every single week. This is #CSHutTrip Video and blog post below. http://chasingsunri.se/blog/2016/7/22/theres-no-place-like-home And a huge shout out to Max Bailey for putting this together. #ChasingSunrise #JansportCanada #ItsGoodToBeHere #MySeair
