Kane Footwear Adds 12 Universities, 5 Athletes to College Collection

Kane Footwear announced the expansion of its officially licensed college collection with 11 additional schools. In celebration of the expansion, it is partnering with five NCAA athletes to promote the Revive shoe drop, including Ohio State wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr., Clemson linebacker Barrett Carter and Alabama linebacker Dallas Turner.

Student athletes always have been a focus for Kane – between training, classes and game day, these students recognize the importance of recovering quickly and staying physically and mentally sharp.

“Recovery is essential for me,” Carter said. “I think I’m nowhere in life or in football without recovery. The Kane Revive shoe is so versatile I can have a hard workout and put them on and they’ll have me feeling good again. It’s my go-to shoe – you can rock it in different scenes, different areas. I’m not going to wear a shoe unless it’s comfortable, and you’re not going to find a more comfortable shoe than Kane Footwear.”

Kane launched its initial collegiate collection last year with five schools featuring elite athletic programs: the University of Alabama, the University of Southern California, Clemson University, Louisiana State University, and the University of Florida. This year the collection expands to include the University of Utah, the University of Arizona, Auburn, Clemson, Syracuse, Florida State, the University of Iowa, Iowa State, Michigan State, Ohio State and Ole Miss.

“Playing competitive lacrosse at Johns Hopkins throughout college, I experienced firsthand the difficulty of balancing time between games, a packed training schedule and classes,” said John Gagliardi, CEO and founder of Kane Footwear. “I always needed to be at the top of my game – physically and mentally.”

The Revive was designed with sports podiatrist Dr. Dan Geller, who has worked with top athletes from professional and amateur sports to arts and entertainment. The shoe offers a 10mm heel-to-toe drop to provide Achilles support, an expanded footbed to accommodate post-workout swelling, a breathable design and nodes on the sole of the shoe to stimulate and promote blood flow in the feet.
