The BPMW team that successfully re-focused menswear with their (capsule) shows are now setting their eyes on doing the same for footwear.
COMPASS: A New Direction is scheduled for July 28th and 29th in Las Vegas. Citing that “the footwear industry is dying for a change,” BPMW hopes to states that “Shoes are no longer just an accessory, they’re a culture. With all the lifestyle, the collectors and new collaborations infusing footwear with a new energy, it’s pretty evident that the industry isn’t what it used to be. Things are different and we’re about to prove it.”
Though the COMPASS brandlist is not yet finalizes, we expect more than 40 brands to participate. It looks like we’ll be adding another show to our normal coverage roster.
