Next Adventure

Next Adventure is Oregon’s alternative outdoor store. Born out of friendship in 1997, we’ve grown a ton (we now have four stores and an online shop) but we’ve remained obsessed with community, getting people outfitted for any adventure of their choice at the price they crave, and employing experts in the field. We love the outdoors and offer used gear, rentals and deals so anyone can get the snow gear, paddle gear, kids gear, and more that they need to enjoy the great outdoors.

Chinook Footwear

We make a dependable product and we make it affordable.

We didn’t decide to make work boots just to expand a brand of work clothes, fashion footwear or lawn mowers. And there’s no premium price tag on our boots. For 25 years we’ve been making footwear for working folks that won’t break the bank and lasts longer than the latest trend. That’s all we do.

Chinook may have started out as a small Pacific Northwest boot maker supplying footwear to one retailer but now our footwear can be found in hundreds of the largest work boot retailers coast-to-coast. Without any advertising hype we’ve grown simply by word of mouth– growth driven by quality and value.
