As you may be aware, Crocs has purchased Bite Footwear July 30, 2007. With Bite’s move to their new location at Croc’s headquarters in Niwot, Colorado almost complete, additional signs of the two companies collaborative efforts can be seen with some of the new products Bite is introducing.
Bite™ Footwear Introduces Crocs Croslite™ Footbed in Product Line Up at Outdoor Retailer Summer Market
Bite, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Crocs, Inc. (NASDAQ: CROX), announced the use of Crocs’ proprietary closed cell resin material, Croslite™, in the footbeds of select Bite™ Footwear products. These new products will be available to consumers in Spring 2008.
The Adventure 3-in-1 Series sandals (MSRP $79.99-$99.99) will be the first Bite™ Footwear products to feature Crocs’ unique Croslite™ material, which is known for its lightweight, anti-microbial, waterproof, and odor resistant properties. Available in two styles each for men and women, and perfect for the adventure traveler, this series transforms from a one piece sandal into three possible footwear options. One of the men’s styles, the Chinook, features Bite’s patent pending Adjustable Strapping System to individualize the fit to the foot. It can also be easily changed from an athletic light-hiker into an easy-on, easy-off slide, and further adjusts into a beach flip flop.
“We are excited to introduce Crocs’ proprietary material, Croslite, into Bite Footwear products, further expanding the benefits of our material into new markets,” said Ron Snyder, CEO of Crocs. “Crocs continues its commitment to provide comfortable, versatile and functional footwear to our broad range of consumers.”
