The line is offered in softly textured nubuck leather with a velvety touch in a range of colors and prints that complement a summer wardrobe of chinos and jeans, Murphy adds. Colors include washed blue, red, green, orchid and sand, as well as three tropical floral prints and basic black and white leather. The Veda is also available in preppy rose or blue madras plaid.
Murphy says initial feedback from retailers has been outstanding. Several major accounts have already booked significant orders and plan to position the line as a perfect warmer weather companion to the brand's popular Sausalito sandal program. "Retailers perceive Sanibel as a fresh, fashion-right extension of the Dansko line," he says. Retail prices range from $70 to $90.
