The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) has announced the award of a licence to Hotter, the UK’s biggest shoe maker, for a selection of comfortable women’s footwear. Now under development, the Hotter-RHS selection will be available at retail later this year.
The Hotter RHS line will be available at www.hotter.com, via Hotter’s 75 retail stores nationwide and several large garden centres around the UK. The shoes will be ideal for busy women on the go; they will feature Hotter’s signature comfort benefits; focusing on creating the perfect fit in sizes 3 to 9 with some half sizes, full adjustability, quality leather uppers and lightweight, supportive soles. The styles being given an RHS makeover will come from Hotter’s classic and active collections, they will be Hotter customer favourites guaranteeing an ageless and versatile appeal.
Hotter, which is 60-years-old this year, was established in Lancashire as a slipper maker and has since gained renown for designing and making stylish shoes which offer the comfort of slippers. The company is not only the UK’s biggest shoe maker, but is also an international omni-channel retailer making and selling over 2 million pairs of shoes each year.
Victoria Betts, Omni-Channel Director, Hotter, says: “We are delighted to be working with the UK’s favourite gardening charity to design a beautiful range of stylish and comfortable footwear which will be inspired by artwork from the RHS Lindley Collections.”
Shereen Llewellin, Licensing Executive, RHS, says: “Hotter is a well-established brand with a reputation for quality, style and comfort – and a brand that, like the RHS, strongly supports British design and development. We’re delighted to be working with Hotter on this range of footwear.”
