Well, the snow is starting to fly in the alpine, and the 2010 moto season has officially closed in the great north. The FYi motocross track rough in is 50% complete. Already looking forward to next spring..
The Patagonia Design Team just spent a week in the neighborhood.
The area made an impact on Eric Rice, who extended his stay to take a full tour of the B.C. health care system.
FYi and the NB Innovation Studio have teamed up on a project to explore technical footwear design and construction. We spent a couple of days with the NB Design Team at their HQ/Design Center/Factory to kick things off. Not sure where we will end up, but it’s clear this project is going to be FUN!
NB still maintains an in-house factory (when was the last time you saw a ‘made in the U.S.A.’ label?).
Was a very inspiring trip. We are looking forward to hosting the NB crew for a visit to the FYi Studio in the near future.
