New merchandise available today for athleisure fans
SEATTLE, May 5, 2015 /CNW/ -- SHOES.COM today announced that it has added Adidas and Under Armour to its online selection in an effort to continue to provide its customers with access to more athletic and outdoor footwear, clothing and accessories.
"We've noticed a shift in consumer demand to more athletic-inspired shoes and accessories that can be worn to the gym or on the streets. We attribute this to the 'athleisure' inspired lifestyle that continues to be popular in 2015," said Roger Hardy, CEO of SHOES.COM. "Our customers are big fans of Adidas and Under Armour, which are both important brands in the active wear space. We're excited to expand our offering and believe that our customers will be thrilled with the new options they'll find on our site."
The popularity of athleisure-inspired gear from brands like Adidas and Under Armour shows no signs of stopping. In the U.S. alone, consumers spent $323 billion on apparel, footwear and accessories in 2014, according to The NPD Group. This 1 percent year-over-year gain was the result of growth from the athletic category.
SHOES.COM is now offering customers access to more than 400 brands, adding Adidas and Under Armour to brands like New Balance, Asics, Merrell, Brooks, Saucony and Converse.
SHOES.COM and its sister brands OnlineShoes.com and SHOEme.ca continue to innovate the online footwear industry. With recent acquisitions, expanded selection and a focus on providing a better customer experience, the joint businesses are on an aggressive growth trajectory.
