Deckers Brands on Thursday delivered fourth-quarter results that pushed past forecasts, thanks to gains at its hero brand Ugg, which has been showing signs of turnaround success.

Why the Footwear Industry Needs to Face Its Racial Diversity Problem - 8時間前  Footwear News

The footwear industry has a diversity problem. It’s a fact that has been privately lamented for years but has recently catapulted into the public conversation. For Nike, in particular, the subject has become urgently present as it works to address a #MeToo executive shake-up that has only served to highlight deeper issues of race and inclusion. And last month, when FN published its list of under-40 executives and designers, the severity of the problem was glaringly evident, even among the next generation of leaders — and shoe people took notice.
