Some comebacks will never be forgotten. Michael Jordan. Muhammad Ali. Gareth Bale... 

Well maybe not that last one quite yet but 2020 is providing us with a platform for yet another iconic comeback, this time in the form of North Face’s Steep Tech collection.


Straight from 1991, this collection has been redesigned and reimagined for the 21st century. Originally designed 29 years ago with skiing legend Scott Schmidt, it was ahead of its time back then, and now it is back for more. With stand out pieces including the Steep Tech apogee jacket and the unisex long sleeve tee, both men’s and women’s pieces stand out with striking colours from the original big mountain days. Now they are ready for the street to the slopes.

In 2020, athlete inspired collections are all too common but back in ‘91, Steep Tech was one of the brand’s first athlete-designed collections. Scot Schmidt’s fluid and unique style not on skis not only redefined the sport but made him an icon of the era allowing him to redefine what was stylish on the slopes for the entirety of the 90s.

With big lines and huge drops, the Steep Tech collection was shaping the look not just for the slopes but for technical city wear. Unsurprisingly it became a favourite on the streets, evolving beyond the mountains to become one of the most sought after icons in the history of The North Face.

These threads are back to make an impact wherever you want to wear them and we are delighted to see the return of this stylish icon. Wear them on the street for now, and on the slope when we are allowed to get back out there. 

The collection is available to buy from 24th October at in select The North Face stores and speciality retailers.
