The company began in 1980 when boyhood pals and high-school coaches Art Juedes and Rick Gering set out to find professional-quality shoes for their athletes and ended up in business for themselves. Originally viewed as a grassroots project, this venture grew into a worldwide direct-mail catalog and internet sales conglomerate featuring top athletic brands such as adidas, ASICS, Reebok, Converse, New Balance, Saucony, and Nike.
