ONLINE MADE-TO-WEAR LEADER HOCKERTY ENTERS CUSTOM SNEAKERS CATEGORY
THE BRAND CONTINUES TO INNOVATE IN SUSTAINABLE AND PERSONALIZED FASHION
As the trend of custom sneakers continues to grow around the world, Hockerty, the online leader in personalized men's and women's fashion, keeps up with the trend by introducing a high quality, customizable men’s sneaker to its line of made-to-order clothing and footwear. Following in the footsteps of the retailers’ popular custom dress shoes, loafers and boots, the highly anticipated custom sneakers will be available for order on Hockerty.com at the end of October and will ship to consumers within two weeks after their order is placed.
In a world where consumers are weary of mass-produced clothing, footwear, and accessories, Hockerty’s custom sneakers offer a step up from everyday shoe options and allow customers to showcase their unique style and personality, showcasing more awareness to the sustainability of the product. With a multitude of combinations possible, customers can choose from seven base styles: four low top sneaker options and three running shoe designs. Available materials include ten colour options in calfskin leather, six colours in suede or a choice of ten popular Hockerty fabrics.
Beyond materials and colours for every single piece, customers can select additional personalization options like initials and embroideries, laces, choice of soles, burnishing effect, and more. Hockerty understands its consumers are seeking more than a one-season style. “Customers worldwide are looking for high quality, sustainable options at an affordable price,” explains company representative, Salva Jovells. “Hockerty’s custom shoes and clothing offer that. When you design apparel or footwear that is uniquely you, it’s no longer something you’re willing to trade in for next season’s latest fad. Instead, you’ll want to wear it for years to come.” The sneakers are available in EU36 to EU50 and will retail for 129€/$169/£129.
