Fashion just got cosy

METROPOLITAN professionals the world over know the secret behind Rockport brand of shoes.

Sharing that secret with you, J R White is launching the men's range of Rockport shoes this Valentine's Day.

The Rockport range combines sport technology to bring you what is perhaps the best and finest footwear for those who want to look sharp and feel smart.

Stylish, contemporary and built in engineered comfort makes the Rockport range—which was designed with performance technologies from adidas—the most walkable shoes in the world.

Founded in the USA in 1971 by father and son Saul and Bruce Katz, Rockport joined the adidas Group in 2006 to bring sport-inspired innovation to casual and dress footwear—thanks to adidas' adiprene features.

The adiprene feature is a shock absorber built into the heel of the shoe and provides energy rebound.

Rockport is the first company to use athletic technologies in dress and casual shoes.

The lifestyle footwear company makes approximately 10 to 11 million pairs of shoes a year, each built with walkability architecture for comfort, lightness and flexibility.

The global leading footwear brand is sold on five continents in over 60 countries around the world.

Available from $325 a pair, the Rockport range at J R White includes the Business Lite Bike Toe, the Ready For Business Lite Toe, Business Lite Moc Toe and Business Lite Plain Toe.

For shoes that keep your feet dry, say hello to Rockport and wave goodbye to lace bruising and blisters and foot fatigue. For footwear that works all day, every day while keeping you looking just as good, Rockport is the word.
