Yes, The Montara Boot Rocks!

Posted: September 23, 2013 in Media, New Products

“I take my gear reviews very seriously (I put two weeks of wear and tear on each product, minimum) so make no mistake that when I say I’ve found the most comfortable hiking boot I’ve ever worn, I’m not exaggerating. The Ahnu Montara boot has officially earned the highest rating I’ve ever given a hiker.”

We are very happy to announce Venture Sports has been named the agency of record for GU Energy Labs in the Southeast. Venture Sports’ mission is to increase market share for GU as the original energy gel brand in the independent outdoor, run specialty and sporting goods specialty retail distribution channels.

From 1991 until today, athletes the world over have come to the same conclusion: GU works. The Berkeley-based sports nutrition company started with the original GU Energy Gel, a revolutionary and more effective method to keep athletes fueled during exercise. Since then, GU has continued to improve the recipe, incorporating the latest scientific research into its products. In 2001, GU Electrolyte Brew was launched as the perfect hydration companion to GU Energy Gel. 2008 saw the introduction of Roctane Ultra Endurance Energy Gel, followed by Chomps Energy Chews and GU Recovery Brew in 2009. Every product is formulated to further GU’s mission: to help athletes go faster and longer than ever before.

Venture Sports will manage all aspects of sales and grassroots marketing for GU with a team of three dedicated sales reps focused on independent running, independent outdoor and sports specialty retailers.

We are very happy to announce Venture Sports has been named the agency of record for Hoka One One performance running footwear in the Southeast. Venture Sports’ mission is to establish Hoka One One as the original over-sized athletic footwear brand in the independent outdoor and run specialty retail distribution channels.

In 2010 Hoka One One introduced the concept of over-sized athletic footwear with the genius to create a running shoe that would “Fly” downhill. Once introduced, the over-sized design proved to have benefits that were far broader than just downhill running. Thousands of ultra-runners have already discovered that Hoka One One technology allows them to run farther, with less effort and finish less fatigued.

Venture Sports will manage all aspects of sales and grassroots marketing for Hoka One One with a team of three dedicated sales reps focused on independent running and independent outdoor specialty retailers.

Barking Dog Shoes just gave the Ahnu Laguna rain boot a glowing review! This style has been taking off all over the country this year – be sure to check it out at your local retailer! Here’s what they had to say:

“At first sight, I loved the Ahnu Laguna. Shiny deep purple, horn-shaped toggles, perfect height.”

Ahnu’s Numentum™ Commute technology isn’t just fancy speak, there’s something to it. A thick multi-density foam insole and U-shaped heel stabilizer keeps the foot in place through the stride while keeping the body balanced. Listen, if my messed-up feet felt great after a half-mile walk, yours will too. “

Here are a few quotes from our retailers regarding Ahnu this season:

“Ahnu, and the Karma in particular, has been the best new brand we’ve launched in years.”

“The Montara Boot has completely revitalized our women’s hiking category this season.”

“I’m glad I brought Ahnu in early because no one can afford to ignore this brand much longer”
