State of the Art Distribution Centers

We invested over $75 million from 2016-2019 to expand and upgrade our distribution centers, including state-of-the-art automation that allows us to process, pack, and ship with the greatest speed and efficiency. Our five distribution centers in North America – three in Southern California, one in Tennessee, and one in Ontario, Canada -- process over 80 million pairs every year for our wholesale and retail operations.

Our newest facilities, in Chino, California, have the capability of processing 400,000 pairs each day and can house over 10 million pairs at any one time, with the ability to ship case packs or loose pairs to our wholesale partners and drop ship directly to customers.

Nearly 700 dedicated associates in logistics, distribution, and transportation make this complex and sophisticated system work.
