RYU (Respect Your Universe) is a tailored urban athletic apparel brand that engages in the development, marketing, and distribution of apparel, bags and accessories. Our products are engineered for the fitness, training and performance of the multi-discipline athlete. Our products are designed, developed and tested at our corporate headquarters in Vancouver, BC, Canada. Production takes place in factories located in North America and Asia.
The RYU brand was created by a team of industry experts in 2015 that found a gap in the apparel market whereby the male athlete was underserved, the female athletic market was awash by a sea of sameness, and nobody was designing carry systems for active people to build their lives around. This team transformed the RYU brand and created a new category: Urban Athletics. RYU is the new standard of tailored innovation for the urban athlete.
