Waltham, MA (PRWEB) September 21, 2011
PlanetShoes.com, a lifestyle retailer committed to helping people live healthier, more eco-friendly lives, is pleased to announce the addition of Otz Shoes to their unique assortment of footwear. Otz, named after a Neolithic Iceman discovered in an Alpine glacier and carbon dated to 3300 B.C., takes its design inspiration from the simple yet functional shoes that were found on the mummified Oetzi. The shoes offer exceptional comfort due to their CORKcomfort technology, an antimicrobial footbed that molds to the individual footscape with wear.
“We were initially intrigued by the unique name and distinctive look of Otz Shoes’s line,” said Phil Meynard, President of Planet, Inc., “but what really sold us was their comfort story. We think anyone who slips on a pair of shoes from Otz Shoes will fall in love with this brand, and we’re excited to offer them to our customers.”
PlanetShoes.com is carrying a variety of styles from Otz Shoes, including canvas slip-ons, sneakers and boots.
About Otz Shoes
Otz Shoes, or OeTZI3300, takes customers on a journey back in time to a prehistoric man named "Oetzi" who has been carbon dated to 3300 B.C. His mummified body, unveiled from his frozen state by "global warming", was wearing nothing more than the basic essentials he needed for survival - gear for protection and warmth, as well as a unique pair of shoes. Inspired by the simple yet functional design of Oetzi's shoes, the need to be environmentally responsible and promote the art of well being, Otz Shoes is re-mastering these basic essentials from the past in a fresh and relevant way. The company's sneakers and accessories are crafted with the same understated complexities that run through Oetzi's DNA. Otz Shoes's CORKcomfort footbeds are fitted to every pair, toxic glues have been eliminated and the shoe materials are premium quality and touch. Made for an all day, everyday adventure, Otz Shoes takes customers from the highs and lows of our multicultural metropolis to the many trails that path our majestic planet.
