Kjetil Jansrud is a Norwegian alpine skier. Ever since he started his career in 2002, Kjetil has consistently achieved his goals. He has gold, silver and bronze from the Olympics as well as two silver from the World Cup! When he is not skiing, Kjetil travels the world looking for new training locations. As a competitor, Kjetil needs to have the right equipment to achieve the best results. Kjetil says that few know Nature as Norwegians do. Both in bad weather, and in good.
“Viking Footwear has been my solutions to all weather conditions since I was a young boy wearing my first Cherrox at the age of 3. Viking has since made sure that I stay warm and dry at the Skiing hill as well as when hiking in the mountains throughout the summer months. Viking Footwear has a competence and experience with Norwegian weather that few can rival, and they strive to push the boundaries of quality every single day. This speaks to what I want to be as a professional athlete and as a man who is cold, wet, and sweaty at the same time - Viking has been and is my absolute favorite”.
Viking Footwear is proud to have Kjetil as one of our ambassadors – Go Kjetil!
Anaconda Light Boa GTX: My favorite day-hiking shoe. It keeps me dry whilst still being a very light shoe that you can walk miles in. Even used them when climbing big mountains last summer (2018) and it was a dream.
Apex II Boa GTX M: A running shoe that I use every day. For physical training inside during the winter season, as well as running during the summer months. They are very light, easy to get on and off due to the BOA system, and they feature a GoreTex membrane which keeps me dry even if it's raining or I need to go outside during the winter snow.
