Khombu has signed U.S. Ski Team member, Breezy Johnson, to an endorsement deal for the 2017/18 season. It’s the first female team member to partner with the brand and the partnership will include promoting, wearing and aiding in the design and development of the brand’s product.
“We are honored to have Breezy as a part of the Khombu team,” states Brandy K. McCarty, Chief Merchant Officer. “She is the embodiment of our brand’s spirit. Her adventurous competitive nature brings Khonbu’s brand DNA to life and highlights the closeness of our relationship with the entire U.S. Ski Team.”
“I am thrilled to partner with Khombu for the upcoming season and throughout the Winter Games,” says Johnson. “I have always been an admirer of the brand’s values and how well it aligns with my lifestyle. I’m eager to see where the next adventure in my career takes me and am excited to have Khombu along for the journey.”
In 2017, Johnson leapt through the rankings on the World Cup circuit finishing the season in 18th place in Downhill and 36th in Super G. She notched several top 15 rankings, including 10th place in the Cortina d’Ampezzo Downhill. She competed in her fist World Championships, the youngest member of the U.S. team, and finished with a 15th place in the Downhill and 28th in the Super G. Johnson is hailed as the “next U.S. ski team star” and one to watch for the upcoming 2018 Winter Olympics.
Khombu has a long partnership with the U.S. Ski Team and was recently dubbed the official supplier of après ski boots to the team through 2024.
