Vlado Footwear is a Los Angeles based brand offering fashion forward athletic footwear for men and women who seek out comfort and style. Started in 2004, the brand has quickly become a staple amongst sneaker enthusiasts due to their huge underground following of celebrities, footwear industry insiders and die-hard fashionistas. Comprised of 30 styles for men and 6 styles for women, the collection aims to celebrate personal style through individuality. Whether the consumer is looking to make a bold fashion statement or just wants something classically clean, Vlado Footwear ‘s strength stems from the support that they lend to the community through philanthropic initiatives, key product placement and a significant increase in sales at retail. The collection is currently sold at mega-chain retailers like Finish Line and Journeys as well as smaller, more intimate specialty sneaker stores and online.
“Our goal is to create something unique, something special,” explains the Vlado creative team. “It’s very important to stay ahead of the trends by venturing out, seeing what direction the consumers are heading in, paying attention to the demand of our customers and realizing that they want shoes that fit effortlessly into their lifestyles.”
