With a quickly growing customer base, FREEBIRD has built a tight-knit community within its successful retail locations throughout the U.S. To further make meaningful connections through personalized shopping experiences, the company’s newly opened store locations in Charleston and San Antonio, which are open to the public now, as well as its most recently opened location in Las Vegas, will be commemorated with grand opening events for each local community.
“Here at FREEBIRD, our products and people are the heartbeat of our story and the ‘sole’ of our brand. We pride ourselves on authenticity, quality, and effortless fashion, which has helped us to cultivate genuine relationships with customers from all walks of life,” said Mike Murphy, Owner & CEO of FREEBIRD. “Our boots and those who wear them are at the forefront of everything we do, which is why we’re excited to continue our journey and grow our company.”
Founded in Denver in 2009, FREEBIRD is the leading footwear brand born out of a love for boots. Utilizing superior craftsmanship through original Goodyear welt construction, the brand is widely recognized for its intricate details and metal work, exotic materials, and the finest hand-finished full-grain leathers. The team is comprised of dreamers, trendsetters, and go-getters dedicated to creating unique designs and one-of-a-kind experiences. The brand’s highly anticipated new store locations nod to its talented team and inspiring designs that resonate with its community.
“FREEBIRD was founded upon the notions of freedom, individuality, and independence, which has helped us assemble an amazing team that shares our vision of building a one-of-a-kind company. We are not just making boots, we are creating wearable works of art,” said Teagan Coym, Vice President of FREEBIRD. “We’re thrilled to continue making meaningful connections in our Denver home base while spreading our wings across the U.S. through our new store openings.”
