The Gateway1® brand name is inspired from the same word used in the days of USA´s birth. Here settlers, frontiers, fur trappers and other adventures often named the first landing spot Gateway one on the great rivers. Here fur trade and supply where vital for the next season. By this name we want to express the functionality of our footwear to even the harshest nature and weather.

We have chosen the North American bison, often called buffalo, and illustrated like the native Indians did it as our logo
– a symbol of strength and survival even under the most severe conditions.
With our Danish and Scandinavian background we strive to express functionality in our design and details.
