Jul 22, 2015 | Leave a comment

Our first Steez Drop happened on December 1, 2013. While driving across the Upper Peninsula we stopped in downtown Marquette, carefully picked a location, and dropped an Upper Peninsula hoodie on a bench with a note, “Finders keepers”. 22 minutes later it was gone. Since then we’ve had fun making drops from Ironwood to Mackinac Island, giving back to customers, fans, tourists, and a few random passerbys with packages of Steez. We always include a hoodie or sweatshirt, t-shirt, and … Read more

That is Stef P., who has the only remaining selfie. And what a selfie. “There’s … Read more

Yooper Steez has achieved another first (unless somewhere out there hasn’t sent us their photo!). To our knowledge our friends Angela and Josh, residents of Lansing, became the first couple engaged while each were wearing Yooper Steez shirts! We’re excited for the young couple and have to say they look pretty good too. Though the shirts are hardly noticeable behind that shiny rock. And of course the special moment took place in the Upper Peninsula, at … Read more

You may have seen a few color changes lately. On Tuesday night the great hockey rivalry was ignited once again between the Michigan Tech Huskies and the Northern Michigan Wildcats. Before the game we thought it was fitting to have a makeover for the rest of February based on whichever teams win.  As you may have guessed, MTU won that game. They won 8-2 which is their biggest win against NMU in the history of … Read more
