IN THE NEWS: Kane x Knight Collab
Kane Footwear has released a new edition of its Kane Revive active recovery style with USA women’s hockey player Hilary Knight. The brand says the design of the Kane x Knight shoe aims to honor Knight’s journey in women’s sports. It includes style touches such as an antique white upper and nautical blue speckle bottom, chosen by Knight along with a back hang loop featuring Knight’s mantra: “Dare to Be ____.”
Westport, CT-based Kane’s Revive shoe is made with BounceBack foam, created from Brazilian sugarcane, a renewable resource. With the use of its BounceBack foam, Kane, which launched in 2021, aims to “provide a balance of cushioning and support to help the body renew.”
