For their three years supporting the Outdoor Industries Women's Coalition (OIWC), Vasque is pleased to announce that they have renewed as a Platinum level sponsor for 2011.

“We believe in the goals and mission of the Outdoor Industries Women's Coalition and are proud to be a partner,” states Vasque marketing director, Mark Dinndorf. “Their work to support and enhance professional development not only helps Vasque, but the entire industry.”

In recent years, Vasque has seen their women's specific skus grow to almost half of their sales, with the Women's Mindbender trail runner being one of their bestsellers. Vasque is experiencing success with their women's specific products because they understand a woman's shoe should be made to fit a woman's specific shape. The Vasque women's collection features narrower heel pockets, additional instep support, an adjusted heel to ball flex zone ration and higher arches. Vasque recognizes that women need outdoor gear that is sized for them so that they can get the most out of all their outdoor experiences.

Look for Vasque and OIWC partnerships this summer, as they work to support national and regional education, networking events and continue to empower women.
