Rockport moseys into Thai market

Rockport, the leading brand of walking shoes in the US, has enlarged its local presence by opening its first store in Bangkok to cash in on the increasing popularity of comfort shoes here. Over 10 brands of comfort shoes have paraded through the Thai market the past few years as demand grows.

DKSH (Thailand) won a bid for the licence to distribute Rockport shoes in the country.

The first flagship Rockport store opened recently at CentralWorld costing THB2 million (USD66,094).
