Khombu Brand Ambassador Breezy Johnson has officially been named to the 2018 U.S. Olympic Team and will be competing for an Olympic gold medal in Pyeongchang, South Korea next month as the youngest member of the U.S. Olympic Alpine ski contingent.
Khombu, the footwear and outerwear brand, announced a partnership with Breezy Johnson in September of 2017. The first female U.S. ski team member to partner with Khombu, Johnson is serving as the brand ambassador for the Fall/Winter 2017-2018 season.
“We are honored to have Breezy as a part of the Khombu team and we look forward to cheering her on next month! She is the embodiment of our brand’s spirit. Her adventurous competitive nature brings Khombu’s brand DNA to life and highlights the closeness of our relationship with the entire U.S. Ski Team,” said Brandy K. McCarty, chief marketing officer, global brand strategy for Khombu. Johnson’s partnership with Khombu includes promoting, wearing and aiding in the design and development of the brand’s product.
Johnson comments, “To say that I am thrilled to compete at this year’s winter games in Pyeongchang is an understatement. As a brand ambassador for Khombu, I have always been an admirer of the brand’s values and how well it aligns with my lifestyle, especially as a frequent traveller. Packing versatile pieces that are a combination of lightweight fashion and performance are essential for me on the road, even more so for my life’s biggest adventure as a professional athlete.”
Khombu has a long partnership with the U.S. Ski Team and was recently dubbed the official supplier of après ski boots to the U.S. Ski Team through 2024, further solidifying the brand as the fashionable performance footwear brand for world-class skiers off the mountain.
