Its initial product offers including boots, summer sandals and slippers. After its modest success in Europe, where its products are sold through major chain stores, in late 2011 the brand embarked on its expansion into Asia. It took market staples such as flip-flops, sandals, and casual shoes and gave it a fresh Scandinavian design twist.
