Dennis has enjoyed a Sports, Men’s & Women’s Fashion Apparel career covering the entire course of Wholesale, Retail, Manufacturing, Marketing, Merchandising & Design. A few years back Dennis was researching the feasibility of a casual, Italian leather /Exotic footwear program in classic, timeless styles. During this period Dennis discovered the possibility of making these same style shoes using TPU and EVA properties.
What would that mean, exactly?
TPU – Thermo Polyurethane TPU is a sole material which can be injected as a clear, transparent or colored unit. TPU is flexible and 20% harder wearing and can be molded thinner than standard PU. This unique material combines lightness, strength and flexibility.
EVA- Ethylene-vinyl acetate, or Eva is a polymer that has similar softness and flexibility to natural rubber yet can be processed and shaped like PU and TPU.
TPU + EVA = COMFORT TPU + EVA = COLOR
Penny Loafers, Bow Tie Loafers, Horse Bit Loafers in Driver / Deck Shoe Models generally have 5-6 components in the shoe. Using TPU & EVA, as opposed to leather, would allow us to “hot pour” these components in exact Pantone Colors. Shades of a color now have no limits.
By incorporating state of the art TPU and EVA properties, Bowlers delivers fresh, fun color pallets in virtually the same classic, iconic styles that surfaced in the 30’s, 40’s & 50’s. The components in Bowlers iconic styles allows us to deliver color combinations that will WOW you!!! School Spirit colors will be a driving force in our launch.
Are you Garnet, are you Navy, are you Crimson, are you Burnt Orange?
It does not matter as we can deliver your favorite Loafer in your specific Team Colors.
