OUR BEGINNINGS

Phenom Elite was originally founded in 2013 by Nathan Dorton, who, as a former college football player at Appalachian State, could not find the quality of product he wanted. With a $65 investment he designed and manufactured his own glove. Shortly after, a full uniform and apparel line was developed and Phenom Elite began marketing its brand to disrupt the sporting goods industry with the focus of peak athletic performance with never seen before designs.

That effort has led to deals with NFL Hall of Famer Randy Moss, becoming the Official Uniform & On-Field apparel provider of the Arena Football League, a consumer products licensing agreement with Warner Media & DC Comics, and much, much, more. With continued growth, Phenom will continue to work to become one of the major players in the sports equipment industry for years to come.
