Outdoor Retailer S/S 2015 COLOR Trends-Part 7

PINK pink pink 


Unlike what we saw on fashion runways for men's Resort- S/S 2015 (at least so far)… pink and berry in vibrant and more demure tones-still seem to be mostly shades for the females -when it comprises more than 20% of an item -in the 'outdoors' world.

BUT since women are such huge buyers of fitness/outdoor/casual lifestyle apparel/footwear/gear-there was a whole lotta those- at the more recent Outdoor Retailer tradeshow.
CHACO---fashiony refresh for the best selling sandals- ZX/3 2 $105- with multiple straps atop YAMPA outsole  and a new LUVSEAT  footbed design. Also like how the deep pink color carries over around the outsole too.

SKECHERS gaining creeds with serious runners-GoRun Ultra $80-synthetic mesh uppers-stretchy and fitting- with  cushioning supportive Resalyte midsole and Resagrip outsole-4mm heel drop w/o optional insole that makes it 8mm. For mid foot strikers.
