Community Values
Hi BANGS Fam!

We are so glad you’re here. It’s crazy beautiful that we’ve even gotten to this point!! BANGS was just a glimmer of an idea under 10 years ago.

Our Founder's first vision for BANGS came to her when she was 22 years old to try and make the world a better place.

Here at BANGS, we work to bring our mission to life in everything we do! We take 20% of our net profits and put them towards helping entrepreneurs start businesses around the world. We partner with an incredible third generation family-owned manufacturer to guarantee our goods are produced and sourced ethically. We have cultivated a company culture and community united around everyday adventure, positivity, encouragement, and a passion to do good.

We believe that everyday adventure is a mindset and with the right perspective and support from our community, we can make every moment into a positive experience or maybe even... a grand adventure.

We are humbled by the tens of thousands who have joined our community, love our shoes, and supported over 5,000 entrepreneurs in over 74 countries around the world, including the USA.

Our Community is one of the most important extensions of our brand and mission, and we believe that the BANGS Fam (and club!) is one of a kind. This is mostly because of the humans themselves -- a group of kind, passionate people who choose to put their energy towards representing the BANGS mission and for whom we are eternally grateful.

The BANGS Fam program is unique in that our main goal is to encourage our community to find everyday adventure through our shoes, social media, and various activities like weekly adventure challenges, campaigns, and meetups. Our program has proven time and time again that people are intrinsically good and genuinely want to explore the world around them, they just need an opportunity.

We are also grateful for the opportunity to manually review humans eligible for The Club. We reward our Club Members and carefully invite a smaller group of humans to engage with our team and brand more closely. 

A clear goal for the BANGS Fam and company at all levels is tremendous diversity and non-discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, gender expression, age, national origin, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status, in any of our activities or operations.

Everyone is invited to #liveBANGS!!!

We have decided to focus the BANGS community and company on everyday adventure things like meetups, BANGS campaigns, our social mission, travel, outdoor activities, clothing, plants, food, coffee, of course our love of BANGS Shoes, and more.

 

We cannot be a source for all topics of dialogue and understand that BANGS may not support all of your needs so I encourage your participation in the hundreds of sites, blogs and communities dedicated to each of these!

We are not perfect, but we also know that we absolutely 100% condemn violence, hate and discrimination of any kind. Our hope is that we show our stance through our weekly investments in entrepreneurs and our daily flow of operations.

We are crazy grateful for this opportunity, am so proud of each and every one of you, and hope you will continue to help us unite this community around the BANGS Shoes mission.

All our love & respect,
Your BANGS Shoes Fam
