FitFlop has teamed up with Michelle Stein, President of AEFFE Group, to introduce the limited edition Loosh Luxe collection, including slides and sandals that blend style and comfort technology for the ultimate fashion forward shoe. The idea for the partnership started after an organic experience Michelle had with FitFlop. She shares, “I tried on my first FitFlop sandal at Corso Como last summer and was astounded by the comfort and style of these sandals. I never wanted to take them off. After much research, I approached the London-based company with a proposal to develop a unique luxury collection.” From an experience to a reality, FitFlop’s Limited Edition Loosh Luxe collection will initially be available exclusively at Barneys starting November 1. Following this launch, the collection will roll out to additional retailers as well as www.FitFlop.com.
President of North America at FitFlop USA, Doug Jakubowski comments, “We are so excited to be working with Michelle Stein and the AEFFE group on our first limited edition collection made exclusively for the luxury market. What is so amazing is that this project came together because her passion and sincerity was, and is, contagious. Our unique technology is not found anywhere else in the footwear industry and because of this, we both agreed that there is no reason comfort shouldn’t exist in the luxury world! This authentic collaborative partnership and the resulting designs are proof that fashion and all-day comfort can and should co-exist!”
The Loosh Luxe collection – a playful take on the current athleisure trend – is crafted using high-end Italian materials, which deliver an elevated and chic touch for which AEFFE is known. Coupled with FitFlop’s Microwobbleboard™ midsole, a biomechanically engineered base that uses targeted cushioning throughout various sections of the footstep, the collection is both fashionable and functional.
