05 Apr ISlide Expands Distrubution
Boston-based custom footwear designer ISlide has inked four new deals with online retailers Neiman Marcus, Lids, Urban Outfitters and Fanatics.
The partnerships are the latest in many deals with iconic brands including the NBA and Nickelodeon, and are projected to skyrocket sales of the design-them-yourself slides. ISlide founder and Shark Tank alum Justin Kittredge estimates that the addition of these retail channels will continue pushing ISlide’s sales growth path to surpass over 300% since 2015. “Based on the successful relationships we’ve entered in the past,” he projects, “the addition of these channels could bring in millions of dollars in sales in the first year alone.”
