MACBETH FOOTWEAR UNVEILS THE WINSTON

Carlsbad, Calif., September 7, 2010 – Macbeth, a Carlsbad, CA-based footwear, apparel, and accessory lifestyle brand, is proud to announce the launch of their newest style, the Winston.

Macbeth perfectly demonstrates the company’s philosophy with the Winston – to focus on stylish updates to classic silhouettes.  The Winston is a premium sneaker that radiates style and provides the utmost in comfort from the bottom up.  A cup sole, with heel to toe internal cushioning, and molded insoles helps make the Winston one of the most comfortable styles Macbeth has to offer. The classic design incorporates a lightly padded tongue, collar, and an extra soft lining so the shoe feels like it naturally molds to your foot as soon as you slip it on.

Inspiration for the Winston came to Creative Director Ben Gustin during a sales meeting in Amsterdam. “Being from Southern California, most of us were wearing canvas sneakers walking the snow covered streets of the Red Light District”, explains Ben. “My team and I were discussing the need for something we could wear in the colder months. We wanted it to be a shoe that provided comfort and support to walk around all day, but could also transition into something that was stylish enough to wear out at night.”

The premium detailing also helps set the Winston apart from similar sneakers.
A soft hand leather upper material is complemented by waxed laces and contrasted slightly by the black on black premium nubuck and Macbeth pennant logo on the quarter panel.
As with all product offerings from Macbeth, the Winston is available in a fully vegan version.  Additionally, Macbeth prides itself on offering vegan products that are environmentally friendly.  As a leader in vegan footwear, Macbeth has pulled out all the stops to develop innovative vegan materials and adhesives that are less toxic and reduce the impact on the environment.  The fact that Macbeth is a smaller independent brand has enabled them to become more active with vegan initiatives on a grassroots level, and thus, speak more personally to their customers.
