The partnership between EMU Australia x The Athlete’s Foot bridges coastal cool with inspired street style to forge an independent bond through a unique and sustainable Autumn Winter 2022 assortment available at The Athlete’s Foot which is a leader in the athletic street style space.
“The Athlete’s Foot is excited to partner with EMU Australia on this collection. We look forward to introducing our core consumer to a new line of footwear for the Fall and Winter months. EMU Australia designs are a welcome addition to our family of brands,” shares Matthew Lafone, President, and GM of Americas (TAF).
“EMU Australia takes pride in our selective retail partners and the powerful community-driven vision of The Athlete’s Foot was the catalyst for our partnership as we relate to being an independent, family-run business,” said Keith Barnett, North America President of EMU Australia.
EMU Australia’s Autumn Winter 22 collection was inspired by transformation, modern components mixed with natural materials and tones to give contemporary allure while remaining faithful to tradition. The Athlete’s Foot assortment includes boots which are water resistant or waterproof, providing sophisticated options to tackle weather in metropolitan environments. On their own, Australian sheepskin and Merino wool are exceptionally versatile natural materials. Adding a waterproof inner and outer layer creates an entirely new level of freedom and function.
Starting with material selection, EMU Australia uses only the finest natural materials, including the highest quality Merino wool, leather, and sheepskin, which are world-renowned for their super-natural qualities including next-to-skin softness, strength, innate versatility, and technical benefits as well as being renewable, biodegradable 100% natural. EMU Australia’s wool has carried the Woolmark seal of approval for over a decade, guaranteeing its premium quality and authenticity.
