#TUFFSTEPS

Fred VanVleet

Inspired by his journey and the #TUFFSTEPS he has taken, we follow NBA champion Fred VanVleet as he shares his story with us in his hometown of Rockford, Illinois.

We partnered with Fred VanVleet to create a limited-edition TUFF Boot.

“These streets that I walk, the city that I come from, what I've been through, trials, tribulations. That's what makes you up into who you are.”

Fred VanVleet

“The NBA draft was a huge TUFF step... for me to not hear my name called, that was a huge pivotal moment. I just used it as another motivation to pick myself back up and go even harder.”
