In 1973, Michael Budman and Don Green created Roots. They were inspired by their passion for Ontario’s Algonquin Park and everything it represented for them. The Roots style and values are based on quality, integrity and longevity. A lot of thought and care go into each product before the Roots name and logo can go on it. Within a few years, Roots was producing not only shoes but also a wide range of leather products including boots, bags, jackets and accessories.
For decades, Roots has been a leader in the retail industry in Canada with its commitment to environmental matters, literacy campaigns and the promotion of a healthy lifestyle. Roots has worked with environmental groups such as the Canadian Wildlife Federation, the David Suzuki Foundation, Environmental Defense, Friends of the Earth, the Evergreen Foundation, the World Wildlife Fund and the Toronto Green Awards.
Over the years, Don and Michael have received numerous awards and accolades for their work in creating and directing such a highly respected brand.
