Jockey to introduce footwear

Jun 24, 2015

Jockey International Inc. announced today the launch of its new men’s and women’s casual footwear line. The American brand will partner with footwear experts, The Eastman Group, to design, manufacture, and market Jockey’s casual footwear, slippers, flip flops and athleisure styles for men and women.


The collection will feature cooling and heating materials and moisture-wicking fabrics with anti-microbial properties that the Eastman Group specializes in.
"We have found an ideal match with the Eastman Group, which has extensive knowledge of the footwear industry to pair with Jockey's expertise in textile technology and comfort features," said Milou Gwyn, Vice President of licensing at Jockey International, Inc. "This seamless integration of quality, cross-functional and technology-driven footwear falls perfectly in line with Jockey's commitment to deliver innovative products."

Jockey had been searching for a partner for some time before teaming up with the 29-year-old footwear company. The new footwear collection will debut with a soft launch for the spring/summer 2016 season, with a full launch in fall/winter 2016.

Founded in 1986, The Eastman Group specializes in technical fabrics and innovative techniques; the perfect match for Jockey whose mission is to provide high quality, comfortable and innovative apparel to consumers.
