					RICOSTA – Press Release – 18 January 2010

Through a winter wonderland with RICOSTA
Ice, snow and crispy cold weather transform the landscape into a white
winter dream. Now is the time for snowball fights, tobogganing and
leisurely walks through snowy winter forests. For these activities, little
trappers and ice princesses need weatherproof shoes. The new
RICOSTA collection for Autumn/Winter 2010/11 guarantees warm, dry
feet. Fashion and function do not contradict each other. The new styles
show an even greater penchant for detail. Colours and materials are in
line with the current trends of the international catwalks.

The colour spectrum of the coming Autumn/Winter season is more
restrained. Colours ranging from the powdery-misty to warm, medium
and dark brown nuances through to the expressive blue and berry
tones are perfectly coordinated to the latest trends in outerwear. Colour
combinations are colour coordinated and displayed in contrasting
seams, appliqués and piping. Signal red and petrol blue add a
fashionable focus.

Designs, materials and soles featuring numerous innovations deserve
special attention. Vintage effects and irregular surfaces impart a truly
lively look to the new collection. Our boots look cool and modern with
the use of washed suede or hand-finished, oiled and brushed Nubuck.
Mixing materials, such as a coarse mesh or shimmering high-tech
nylon with smooth leather creates a sporty and dynamic look. Fur
appliqués emphasise the wintery statement.

Following market demand, RICOSTA has developed its share of Tex
styles. As the only manufacturer of childrens' shoes, RICOSTA is also
in a position to waterproof its stich down styles thanks to a patented
process. Original details make for interesting looks for the extremely
light CFC-free PU soles. So-called “window technologies“ for direct
injected soles, coarse cleat profiles and imaginative embossing give the
shoes and boots an individualistic look.

Stray Cats and Ice Princesses

This is the motto for the new Autumn/Winter collection for girls. Boots
captivate with hardy, rustic looks and small but fancy details. Boots
with gathers, cuffs, small heels and details such as studs or coarse
seams are the perfect complement to leggings and pipes. Washed
leather and/or vintage effects emphasise the trendy statement of the
waterproof styles. Sporty casual girls will be thrilled with the high lace-
up suede boots with wavy, plastic flocked finish. Coarse profile soles
guarantee a secure, non-slip stepping out. Boots in the trekking look are
not quite laced up and allow the trendy check lining to show through.

On the road in the galaxy (or for après ski), space girls are accompanied
by high-tech boots made from shimmering, stitched nylon. Reflective
and blinking appliqués in shapes such as stars, hearts, horses or even
stray cats ensure greater safety in this darker time of the year.

Girls’ casual shoes tend towards ankle-high boots in the coming winter
season. Ankle cushions, Velcro fasteners, restrained flower appliqués
and digital “window soles” are typical details of the new styles for
sporty girls. Particularly trendy here are mid-cut styles of washed suede
with two-tone bootlaces and contrasting seams. Lace-up boots with
skater soles take on popular, fashionable themes and, thanks to the Tex
feature, are set to be a hit not only with the little trendsetters, but also
with their mothers.

Street Hiking and “Polizeiruf 110”

For boys’ shoes (sizes 25 to 31), RICOSTA presents the successful
bumper car theme in the second season. The casual shoes equipped
with a blinking function (blue light!) are available in a policeman or fire-
fighter variant. Skater styles made from a combination of suede/smooth
leather with three Velcro fastenings, vintage elements and coarse
contrasting seams are dynamic and stylish at the same time thanks to
light-coloured soles with skyline appliqués. In addition to a large
number of sporty casual shoes, RICOSTA now focuses on casual boots
with asymmetrical soles in the trekking look. Take your pick from sporty
colour combinations, eyelet lacing designs or Velcro fasteners. Soles
with “window technology” take up trendy street hiking themes.

Boys with an eye for fashion will like the new casual and rustic boots in
stich down design. Boots fitted with Tex are available in lace-up or
Chelsea variants made from oiled pull-up leather with leather straps on
the heels. They are a perfect match for denims and cargos which boys
now casually tuck into their boots. Raised, rounded toe caps, limed
leather and details with a deliberately unprocessed, unfinished effect
emphasise the hardy statement of the styles. The practical aspects were
also thought of: Side zippers ensure that the boots can be put on and
taken off quickly; coarse cleat profiles provide a secure step on any

For those icy days, RICOSTA recommends warm-lined boots which also
have the window technology and are already available from size 25.
High-tech materials, cuddly plush, zippers at the front on the uppers as
well as original blinking elements such as dragons, arrows, bats and
soccer balls will warm the heart of small and big boys alike in the cold
winter. Skater styles made of brushed leather mixed with suede take up
the skyline theme. Lace-up/Velcro fastener combinations are
fashionable and right in line with the trend.

PEPINO: Environmentally friendly and trendy

In the range for the tiny tots, the proportion of styles in the stich down
design was increased. In addition, even more styles in the PEPINO
collection are now made from the environmentally friendly tanned
leather terracare. Boots and shoes feature handicraft details. Restrained
colours such as brown, grey and blue, and for the girls also cobalt blue,
violet and blackberry, as well as an overall more reserved mix of
colours lend the new PEPINO collection a fashionable and noble

In the sporty range, direct injected, extremely light, CFC-free PU soles
with the so-called “window technology” dominate. As the sole
manufacturer of childrens’ shoes, PEPINO also offers styles in the stich
down design featuring Tex. All the styles are in addition provided with
removable leather insoles.

Even more fashionable features and a particular penchant for detail
characterise the shoes for little girls. Playful appliqués such as flowers,
polar bears or horses as well as sparkling rhinestones, glitter trims and
brass clasps decorate the little boots. Zigzag seams, piping and studs
are both stylish and girlish at the same time. Hardy mountain climber,
Chelsea and Formula 1 looks emphasise the dynamic and sporty
statement of the new PEPINOs for little boys. Especially suited for hikes
in the snow are our winter boots fitted with Tex and warm linings of
lamb wool. Reflectors and straps in bright colours set fashionable
accents. Shimmering high-tech materials reflect in the ice and the
snow. The stylish highlights of the collection are warm-lined boots in
stich down design. The mix of Nubuck and florally embossed smooth
leather will make little girls’ hearts race. Handcrafted details underline
the quality. The cuddly boots made of genuine, high quality lambskin
hug the little feet almost like a sock. After all, it’s never too early for a
little luxury!
