“We're about being rebellious and optimistic. That's at the core of who we are. Rebellious optimists.”
“When you make fire, when you make a hot outdoor product, people just want to rock it. People don't think ‘this is my jacket for when I go hiking’. They want to wear it every day.”
“We're going to be unapologetic. We're going to be adidas. We’re going to do our thing.”
