Boston, MA – January 6, 2017 – Forsake, creators of footwear that blends comfort, performance and style through functional design and practical technology, is pleased to announce that the new Alma style for women has been awarded the inaugural RANGE Radical by Design Seal of Approval for the Fall 2017 season. 

RANGE developed the Radical by Design Seal of Approval to highlight new and distinctive products designed to elevate outdoor adventure by providing the ideal combination of form and function. These products are not only innovative, but they are also created to look good and feel right for the modern outdoor consumer. They utilize forward-thinking materials in a new way, or they incorporate classic design details into contemporary shapes and silhouettes.

The Radical by Design Seal of Approval recipients were selected from the Venture Out exhibitors at Outdoor Retailer Winter Market 2017 in Salt Lake City. Each product selected will be showcased at The RANGER Station at Venture Out.

“We pushed the boundaries of traditional design for the Alma and we’re thrilled to have RANGE recognize it as something new and different,” said Jack Knoll, marketing director for Forsake. “The Alma is one of many new products that we’re launching to appeal to a broader range of consumer; in this case, we’re targeting the urban outdoorswoman with practical technology in a fashion-forward package.”

Forsake’s new Alma combines all-weather protection with urban sophistication. Waterproof leathers and a rugged Peak-to-Pavement™ outsole shroud an internal wedge, delivering the perfect combination of style and performance. It retails for $149.95 and will be available to consumers in August.Alma is one of twelve new footwear models that Forsake will be introducing at the upcoming Outdoor Retailer Show.
