It’s been four years since FN launched Footwearnews.com, and since then, the 73-year-old legacy brand has evolved from an industry trade magazine to the internet’s authority in shoes. With an over 400 percent growth rate over the last two years, we’re now serving many more readers than ever before. So the timing is right to revamp the way we look. On the first day of spring, March 20, we bring to you a new Footwearnews.com.
“After three years of explosive growth, the new site reflects an important next chapter in a powerful digital success story,” said Michael Atmore, editorial director of FN and brand development director at its parent company, Fairchild Fashion Media. “This is a brand-new product that leverages FN’s authority and history by offering an intelligent curation of everything that’s important to know about the ever-changing shoe business.”
The new home page and article pages will showcase the best content we’re producing in an accessible way, including videos, galleries, special features and more multimedia experiences. Along with a more visual, digital-age approach to storytelling, readers can look forward to more business and industry news and analysis, opinion and think pieces and much more. FN will continue to be your daily front page of all the most relevant and interesting shoe stories in a shiny new display.
