Caleres is thrilled to introduce the relaunch of Zodiac USA. The signature footwear of 1970s blue jeans and rock-and-roll culture has been re-imagined to reflect today’s popular festival culture. Zodiac footwear continues to capture the brand’s original spirit and heritage, while delivering vintage-inspired, quality footwear.
Acquired by Caleres in 2005, the new collection has undergone a contemporary transformation, blending the past with the present to result in authentic, quality footwear that is supremely relevant for today’s modern and expressive consumer lifestyles. Staying true to its bohemian and western-inspired roots, Zodiac will prominently feature a unique, playful assortment of boots, sandals and flats with its signature western, ’70s boho-chic influence.
Zodiac’s purpose is to celebrate women’s individuality and independence. “Zodiac embodies its authentic past with a new approach to its free and easy-going mentality,” noted Nicolas Huneault, Caleres vice president of product creation and trend. “While we were developing the new Zodiac collection, we let our past help define our future by keeping the brand true to its core values. This enabled us to deliver a bold collection that excites today’s consumer and perhaps offers a bit of nostalgia from one of the best fashion decades.”
Zodiac is a heritage brand that appeals to and connects with an extraordinarily widespread consumer base while maintaining a highly differentiated, highly original, and truly authentic foundation in bohemian and western design trends. The majority of Zodiac’s Spring 2020 collection retails from $69-89, with flat sandals starting at $69 and boots starting at $129. Zodiac is available at various retail stores like Macy’s and Dillards, and at zodiacshoes.com.
Launched in the late 1970s and acquired by Caleres in 2005, Zodiac footwear was created by two entrepreneurial tannery owners who pieced together scraps of leather that resulted in a completely new vibe in footwear. Worn by groupies, rock stars and socialites alike, Zodiac became the signature footwear of the “blue jeans and rock-n-roll” culture. The irreverent combination of mixed and distressed leathers accented with distinctive hardware embodied the cool, free-spirit attitude of the times.
