Chaco Does Retro Gaming with Limited-Edition PAC-MAN™ Collection
August 14, 2017
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (Aug. 14, 2017) – Chaco, the iconic outdoor lifestyle footwear brand, announced today its collection of limited-edition Classic Z/Sandals for men and women inspired by PAC-MAN™, the beloved 1980s arcade game. Recognizing the opportunity to embrace the era’s classic arcade art for their adjustable woven straps, Chaco’s product team recreated PAC-MAN and his band of Ghosts within the sandal strap designs, along with a branded logo badge on the heel riser.
The designs effortlessly weave consumer nostalgia for the 80s and 90s directly into the product – a major fashion trend in the marketplace. For the PAC-MAN collection, custom webbing options will also be available in 25mm, 19mm, and 8.5mm strap designs through Chaco’s expanding MyChaco Program, in which customers can choose from hundreds of color and design options, including thread color and custom embroidery.
“When it comes to retro gaming, you can’t get more iconic than PAC-MAN,” said Josh Weichhand, Chaco brand manager. “We’re absolutely thrilled to bring this arcade classic to our Classic Z/Sandals and tie the thrill of setting a high score with letting loose on outdoor adventures.”
The Z/2 Classic PAC-MAN sandals come outfitted with high-performing ChacoGrip™ outsoles and are assembled at Chaco’s factory in the U.S. They are available now, exclusively from www.chacos.com. Learn more at www.chacos.com/pacman.
Born on the river in 1989, Chaco builds premium footwear for the outdoor-minded. As a result of the brand’s proprietary LUVSEAT™ footbed, the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) has awarded the Seal of Acceptance to all Chaco footwear styles. The APMA Seal is intended to raise awareness by identifying products of exceptional quality that are manufactured with comfort, health, and safety in mind. Simply put, Chaco is fit for adventure.
