-- Terrasoles®, a casual feel-good brand of footwear designed for the young-in-attitude, active consumer, has been selected by readers of the influential trade magazine Footwear Plus as winner of the 2008 Plus Award for Design Excellence in the Outdoor Lifestyle category.
“The Plus Awards are a celebration of the footwear industry's talent, creativity and incredible hard work,” says Caroline Diaco, publisher, Footwear Plus.
Awards were given out to the winners at the 10th Annual Plus Awards Party at the Ava Lounge in New York City on February 4, 2009. The March issue of Footwear Plus will feature profiles of all of the winners and photos from the party.
Terrasoles was competing with the following companies that were also nominated in the Outdoor Lifestyle footwear category: J-41®, El Naturalista® and Chaco®.
Winners in the class of 2008 reflect the breadth of the footwear industry from “luxury comfort” to “athletic lifestyle” and include such well-known brands as Nike®, New Balance®, Merrell®, Stride Rite®, Coach® and Kenneth Cole®. The Outdoor Lifestyle segment was one of three new categories added this year.
“We are deeply honored to receive an award that was based upon the votes of retailers and industry leaders,” says Jerry Hemphill, brand president, Terrasoles. “Terrasoles debuted two years ago based upon our vision of a young-in-attitude, active consumer who participated in or was inspired by an active lifestyle. Our research told us that whether a consumer actually lived an active lifestyle or was simply inspired by its concept; they wanted unique products that reflected their vision. They sought comfort, practical functionality, quality and unique aesthetics that set them apart. That is the essence of Terrasoles.”
