New Looks at Old Pro
January 16, 2014
Terry Enmon is an old pro in the boot business, but that’s not why his company is named Old Pro Leather Goods (6045). Old Pro’s line of NFL-licensed footwear and accessories combines the rugged feel of the West with the star power of pro football. According to Enmon, women’s boots and flip-flops have been turning heads here at the show.
“This show’s been very good for us,” he says. “We make high-quality boots with good factories, which enables us to price them very reasonably. NFL.com was by here and they are really happy with the sell-through. The league is making a big push on women’s products, and we offer an opportunity for retailers to make serious money with our lines.”
Enmon reports that the women’s crystal boot and brand new two-toned jeweled flip-flop with contrasting crystals have drawn the most attention thus far. “Everyone comes right over to the New Orleans Saints boot,” adds Enmon. “It’s what we do really well.”
