Hush Puppies Collaborates With Vibram for Men's Footwear Collection
Posted on June 20, 2012
Hush Puppies has collaborated with Vibram, the company behind the FiveFingers design, for a shoe collection called Five. The outsole of the new shoe collection is based on Vibram's FiveFingers design, but the rest of the shoe is a classic dress shoe or boot silhouette. This collection will introduce three silhouettes, the Brogue5, a classic wingtip design, Boot5, a wingtip boot, and the Base5, a casual loafer.
Dani Zizak, vice president of global marketing for Hush Puppies, says, "This partnership sprang from a concept that Vibram owner Marco Bramani had been thinking about. He had personally created a one-of-a-kind Vibram shoe for himself to wear to more formal occasions. The idea seemed like a natural fit for the Hush Puppies brand, and it became an instant marriage of two brands."
Five will be available at hushpuppies.com and at select retailers this September.
