Rocket Dog – Cool And Funky
Rocket Dog began in 1997, in California, USA. Two guys with many years in the women’s footwear industry between them called Stephen Hoyt and Terry Anderson decided to join forces and create a cork bottom sandal which became a huge success. They decided to go into business and named their fledgling company after Stephen’s lively dog, Max, who liked nothing more than racing around the beach in the California sunshine.
The brand initially took all of its inspiration from the urban and surf vibes of the Californian lifestyle, with the first sandals and wedges becoming the must have women’s footwear for hip and trendy females. As Rocket Dog grew, it looked further afield and found inspiration for its creations from all over the world. Exotic fabric designs and quirky touches, combined with the US west coast vibe helped to make Rocket Dog women’s footwear truly unique. Products are designed with affection and the fabric, buckles, laces and eclectic touches are carefully chosen to make sure all products have an enduring, long-term appeal.
Over a decade later, Rocket Dog has grown into a globally recognised women’s footwear brand, producing incredibly hip and funky women’s footwear for energetic, fashion aware females. The range has grown to include pumps, boots, trainers, heels, and bags, and is worn by celebrities such as Paris Hilton and Demi Moore. The quirky California vibe is now truly global and can be seen as far afield as the UK, Continental Europe, Israel and Australasia.
