Readers Say
It pertains to my business
It pertains to my business

I’m an avid reader of Shop-Eat-Surf because it’s really the only online newsletter that I have found that is not only industry related, but also because it’s not so “guy-centric.” I find that a lot of the information I read on the site pertains to my business (as a swimwear designer) and keeps me up to date on what other companies and other women in the industry in general are doing which is not only inspiring but also helps me gauge the future direction of my business as well.

I feel privileged to read the Executive Edition because I know I am getting insider industry information before it hits the mainstream media channels. And it’s always good to know what my friends are up to in the industry.

Three key etnies styles for Spring 2012

It’s been a busy trade show season and we still have lots of brand updates to come.

 

Today, etnies Domestic Sales Manager Aaron Vujicic gives us a short preview of etnies’ three main shoe stories for spring.

 

I spoke with Aaron at Agenda.

 

Sheckler 6 Fusion

Ryan Sheckler’s latest shoe is part of the Fusion line, which uses a new manufacturing process. The patent-pending process fuses outsole, midsole, and upper together, and uses liquid PU instead of glue.

 

The Fusion technology makes vulcanized shoes more flexible, durable lighter and more eco-friendly, the company said.

 

The Sheckler 6 will be sold at key retail partners at all levels of distribution.

 

The Sheckler 6 will retail for $69.

 

Jameson 2 Eco

Etnies is introducing new colorways in the spring for the Jameson 2, and a cork footbed, which gives the shoe a natural feel.

 

There are now two guys’ styles and one girls’ style in the Buy a Shoe, Plant a Tree program.

 

The Jameson 2 will retail for $65 and will sell at most tiers of distribution.

 

In 2011, etnies began planting the first 35,000 trees that will make up the etnies Rainforest in Costa Rica. The project that started with planting one tree in the rainforest for every pair of Jameson 2 Eco shoes sold, has turned into a bigger project where etnies will plant one tree in the rainforest for every pair of Jameson 2 Eco, Jaco Eco and Caprice Eco shoes sold for Spring 2012.

 

Bledsoe low

This is the second pro model for Tyler Bledsoe and it's a spin off of his mid model.

 

The shoe will retail for $65 and only be sold at core skate shops.

 

New etnies trends

In other etnies news, the brand is expanding its lifestyle offering and adding more fashion forward styles, Aaron said.
