WELCOME TO OUR SOCIETY.
Society Nine is a Portland-based brand, celebrating the fight in every woman. We are a modern women's boxing lifestyle brand providing quality training gear and apparel to empower every woman's fight.
We provide her with what she needs to perform at her best - quality product and a supportive community that will be in her corner no matter where she is in her journey, in life and in sport.
The name "Society Nine" is an important one - I often tell people it's actually the first product we created.
Looking back in American history, there's no greater historical event in women's sports than when Title IX was passed (click to read some historical context.) For those who need a quick history lesson, Title IX states:
No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.
The passing of Title IX was a catalyst for female fighters everywhere - across all sports. That's what OUR society honors. It pays homage to the fighters before us, and the fighters now amongst us. It speaks to what the future holds for the modern female fighter - she is capable of doing absolutely anything.
We're celebrating the new society of women who will continue to carry that torch forward.
At Society Nine, we care so much about the quality of our products - from the look, the feel and the performance capabilities. We design and develop everything in house, and test our products before it goes into production and into your closets and gym bags. From there, we continue to listen to our customers to hear what they loved, what they'd like to see improved, as well as their ideas for new products.
Our customers and community mean everything to Society Nine. We continue to learn and get better by making sure that our customers feel heard. We're proud to have them be such a critical part of our evolution.
The Society Nine team brings years of experience from the sports brand industry to make sure that everything you're rocking can truly take you from the ring and the gym, and out. We're proud and honored for the opportunity to make quality gear and apparel to empower you and your fight - whatever and whereever that fight may be.
INCLUSION, FIRST AND FOREMOST
We are an exclusively inclusive community.
We invite ALL to join our community, and to join this space, regardless of skill set, body type, or background.
It's important to us that you feel empowered and welcomed in any of these spaces. It’s more than fitness. However you may identify yourself, we are here to celebrate the fighting spirit that lives in all of us.
We operate on a "come as you are" policy: You don’t have to look a certain way, dress a certain way, have skill or have no skill, to be “here” - in boxing or any martial arts; boutique studio or dojo...wherever “here” may be.
Empowerment transforms people - and we are here with you, every step of the way, to support you in that journey to harness your power.
Whether you have championship belts to your name, or are throwing a punch for the first time, we are here to welcome you, and to have your back in the journey, wherever it takes you.
