Luckily, our strong and lasting history as a brand allows us to stay true to our roots while simultaneously advancing forward with more modern designs,” said Karen McSorley, senior brand manager. “Our women’s Whitton provides an updated aesthetic to a work style boot, giving women of all backgrounds and careers the opportunity to make them their own. We are excited to use Bloom technology as we continue to invest in our goal of more environmentally-considered products.”
