Celebrating its fifth anniversary this year the company was founded by twin sisters Kathleen and Kristina Cuce, who found themselves suffering with cold, damp feet weather while heading to an Indianopolis Colts game at Lucas Oil stadium in Indianapolis. After noticing an audience filled with women dressed in team-inspired apparel and accessories, the two decided to complete their look with companion footwear.
According to Kathleen Cuce, the two had the entrepreneurial spirit required to launch a buiness, having worked in their family’s food and beverage business in Virginia Beach, Va.
The sisters first received the licensee NFL branded footwear, followed by the NHL and NBA. It wasn’t until this fall that they acquired the rights to the NCAA.
While the teams are male dominated, the shoes have a feminine flair and include the company’s signature faux shearling boots. According to Cuce, the products are animal free. In addition, there are trendy platform pumps, wedges and sandals. Retail prices range from $70 to $125.
Based on the success of the line, Cuce said they are preparing to add a men’s and youth collection in fall ’16.
