Introducing the Stadium Goods x Chaco Collaboration
May 18, 2021
CHICAGO/ROCKFORD, Mich. (May 18, 2021) – Stadium Goods, the world’s premier sneaker and streetwear marketplace, has teamed up with Chaco Footwear, the iconic outdoor lifestyle brand, to create a series of Chillos Slide designs.
The collaboration marks the first footwear release by Stadium Goods and is the first iteration of the brands’ partnership. This first drop includes two Stadium Goods colorways – “Blackout” and “Whiteout.”
“I love Chacos,” says Greig Bennett, Vice President of Brand Creative and Lead Designer for Stadium Goods. “Working with them has been something I have wanted to do for a while. The Z Sandal is iconic, but when I first wore the Chillos I knew that Chaco had a new hit that would resonate with our community. The collab speaks to both our aesthetic and Chaco’s innovative heritage.”
The monochromatic “Blackout” and “Whiteout” styles of the Chillos Slide feature tonal Stadium Goods branding on the model’s iconic Z/ Straps. The adjustable cinch buckles help achieve a perfect fit and all black or white footbeds and soles complete the sandal’s rugged but clean aesthetic.
Chaco’s Chillos Slides are meant for everyday casual wear and all manners of relaxation. These lightweight slides feature a soft contoured LUVSEAT™ arch-support footbed, high abrasion EVA outsoles to help ensure a long life for every pair, and an EVA foam midsole that allows them to float.
“We are excited to introduce our brand to a new audience and think that Stadium Goods is the perfect partner for this,” said Lyndi Bell, Brand Marketing Manager for Chaco. “Our collaboration is just getting started and we are looking forward to the things ahead.”
The Stadium Goods x Chaco Chillos Slides are available for both men and women and retail for $85 at Stadium Goods stores in New York and Chicago, online at StadiumGoods.com and Farfetch starting on Tuesday, May 18, 2021.
