NEW YORK (May 13, 2016) — SCL Footwear Group L.L.C. is launching a line of Goodyear-branded casual footwear, dubbed the Goodyear Performance Collection for men, under a licensing agreement with the tire maker.
The line, comprising five styles including canvas sneakers and racing-inspired silhouettes, is available online and at more than 180 stores nationwide, including Shoe Dept. and specialty retailers, Akron-based Goodyear said.
The shoes, manufactured in China, incorporate Goodyear's Wingfoot logo in their design.
Goodyear licensed New York-based SCL — an import company that distributes footwear for multiple licensees — in 2014 to handle Goodyear-branded footwear and receives a royalty on each pair sold.
