Established in 1997, the Baffin Brand was born from a genuine love for the country in which it resides. With Canada’s uncompromising landscapes and rugged extremities, there was a need for footwear which could provide the utmost protection from those elements. Canada’s Inuit community know this environment better than anyone else. Their winter footwear has ranged from two to five different layers of protection at any given temperature. Founder and current President Paul Hubner grew up learning this. Understanding the fundamental layering structure inspired by the Inuit, Baffin developed technologies to modernize the traditional approach. So from the five layer Inuit boot, Baffin’s 8-Layer System came to fruition, and remains at the core of what keeps Baffin unique today.
