Always hiking, and enjoying their outside activities, Jenny Fredericks and Jacqueline Van Dine are long-time friends and athletes, finding the best way to experience life today and unwind from life’s demands is to heads outdoors. Jackie’s husband Jim joined the project, where they created Ahnu, performance driven shoes with organic modern aesthetics, on-trend designs and sleek, modern colours. With everything that goes into the boots, they always try to find a balance, the reasoning to why they called the brand ‘Ahnu’ after the Celtic goddess of balance between well-being and prosperity. Ahnu is also a part of 1% for the Planet, which is an association started by environmental activist Yvon Chouinard and today consists of over 1,200 members spanning 48 countries. They bring in like-minded businesses to help solve the environmental crisis and build successful companies, and to-date have raised more than 100 million dollars donated straight to create a positive environmental change. Whether it be through snowy terrain, or dirt, these boots will handle any condition.
