HEXA has released its new “COAST SS2021” Collection, an entirely new vegan line of shoes and sandals using Outlast temperature regulating technology. Designed with warm weather customers in mind, this collection uses Outlast to help prevent sweating which is often an issue with footwear in hot climates.
HEXA continues to use its signature comfort features of soft linings and foam in the upper. And HEXA will maintain the use of Ortholite EcoLT (athletic quality foam using 6% proprietary castor oil and 5% recycled rubber content) in the insoles. HEXA has also doubled the amount of insole foam with a layer of EVA foam to give extra support and all-day comfort.
Now, with the addition of the NASA Certified Space Technology, Outlast, HEXA shoes not only regulate the temperature inside the shoe but also help prevent blisters, a game-changer for all warm-weather footwear.
Lisa McKeithen, Creative Director and Co-Founder, HEXA, said, “This collection has been a year in the making and we are so proud to include Outlast in our new product range. Using Outlast in our footwear has been a goal of mine for a while because I’ve used other products that use Outlast and I can attest that it really works.”
“I tried it out in one of our loafer styles and I couldn’t believe that my feet weren’t sweating, and I wasn’t getting any blisters walking around in 90°F (32°C) Bangkok heat. I wore the same pair for days on end and it truly does regulate the temperature, meaning my feet never were too hot or too cool, just as they claim,” Lisa added.
Anutra (Sy) Mahatthanarak, Founder of HEXA, stated, “We have personally tested every style because we knew that if it wasn’t comfortable enough for us to wear, then why would anyone else buy it? We were so fortunate to get the approval of Outlast to use in our footwear. Their technology is truly from space and now we get to have it in our shoes on Earth!”
