Bobcat Preview Sponsors

Bobcat Preview is thankful to have an outstanding group of sponsors that help support the program each year. These campus partners are here as a resource to all students and we highly encourage you to learn more about them by visiting their offices! Below you will find some information about each of our sponsors. 

Barefoot Athletics

Barefoot was founded on the novel & rebellious idea that Texas State gear should be cool, target centric, uniquely designed & professionally displayed. In our minds, offering the same tired Texas State logos in bland shopping environments designed to sell textbooks doesn't radiate the words cool or college. Barefoot IS college! We are here to revolutionize Texas State apparel in a fun & exciting environment.
