Guess sandal maker Sandals for All is working to build a new generation of the brand’s best-known styles.
The new collection of sandals comes with a pair of wide widths and is made from recycled materials.
“We’re bringing the technology to the consumer,” Sandals’ president, Matt Cairns, told The Huffington WeSearchr.
“We’re hoping that by making the new range of shoes the best selling pair ever, we’ll have a greater awareness about the impact our products are having on our environment and the people who wear them.”
Cairns said the new designs are being developed with the help of the environmental benefits of using recycled materials in the manufacturing process.
“We’ve been very clear that the materials we’re using in the production process are very high in sustainability,” he said.
Sandals for all is working on a range of new products including a wide-width sandal and a mid-length sandal that are made with recycled materials, he said, adding that he hopes to have the new styles on store shelves by the end of the year.
Sandals have been a top seller in the footwear market, with the brand posting a profit of $3.8 million in the first half of this year.
Cairans said that while the new lines will be the “best-selling pairs ever,” the brands hopes for continued success will be dependent on customers wanting the styles and buying them.
“As we get further along the timeline we want to continue to make sure we have the best possible footwear for the consumer and for their environmental impact,” he explained.
