Looking back on all the incredible moments that made 2019 a year to remember, our hearts are filled with gratitude. Have a glance at some of LONE CONE’s highlights from the past twelve months and stay tuned to learn more about what’s ahead in 2020!
BY THE NUMBERS: ALL THINGS LONE CONE
NEW PATTERNS... 22 OF THEM!
THE ELEMENTARY COLLECTION
One of our biggest milestones in 2019 was launching the Elementary Collection! Our premium boots sport a classy matte finish and are made with all natural rubber. They are designed to easily match any outfit and encourage kids to dress themselves. LONE CONE’s Elementary Collection rain boots are available in a rainbow of solids and a selection of prints that are fun yet sophisticated. Our patterned matte boots are handleless for a more grown-up look and a clean silhouette.
MOMS’ ADVISORY PANEL
In 2018, we launched our Mom’s Advisory Panel, a team of real-life moms of children ages 3-6 that help ensure LONE CONE delivers on its promise to build the best outdoor products for kids and toddlers. In 2019, our panel membership grew over 200%!
We get by with a little help from our friends, and in 2019, that meant enlisting a team of LONE CONE enthusiasts all across the country to capture our products in action. We currently have 8 brand ambassadors who supply us with a stream of fantastically adorable photos and videos of their kids sporting LONE CONE gear.
IN THE OFFICE
It was a big year for LONE CONE by any measure and that is also true of our team. We brought on lots of new talent to help us achieve bigger and better things!

OUTSIDE THE OFFICE
As a company who loves helping families get outside more often, we strive to practice what we preach. From skiing to boating, the LONE CONE team reserves time every season to close the office for fun team-building activities.

IN THE COMMUNITY
Giving back is a core value here at LONE CONE and in 2019, we kicked off our Volunteer Program. Our first project was with Ridge to Rivers, a non-profit organization that cares for over 190 miles of recreation trails in and around Boise’s rolling Foothills. We donned work gloves and spent a day providing some TLC to trails that follow the route of the historic Oregon Trail.
Every year, LONE CONE donates funds and products to organizations in our region that support children, families, and the environment. Among those we contributed to are United Way of Treasure Valley, Winter Wildlands Alliance, and Conservation Voters of Idaho.
