NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sam Edelman, the contemporary lifestyle brand behind some of the world’s most iconic footwear and a Caleres (NYSE: CAL) brand, today announced the launch of its ReLove initiative. ReLove is a resell program for preloved Sam Edelman footwear created in partnership with sustainability and technology platform Archive.
"At Sam Edelman, we take pride in using the highest quality materials to design pieces that are made to last," said Jesse Edelman, the company's GM and SVP. "With ReLove, we can extend the life of our products while giving our customers another choice when buying our shoes."
CEO and co-founder of Archive Emily Gittins added, "We are excited to partner with Sam Edelman to introduce resale to the brand’s customers for the first time through the launch of the ReLove program. ReLove is custom designed to be an extension of the brand and to ensure that beloved Sam Edelman pieces can live multiple lives.”
The peer-to-peer platform allows customers to list their gently used Sam Edelman shoes to sell through the designated page on the brand’s website, providing customers with a more sustainable way to update their wardrobe and extending the lifespan of Sam Edelman products. Customers will select the Sam Edelman pieces they would like to sell and create a listing with photos and a description. Once sold, the customer will be provided with a pre-paid label to ship their pieces to the buyer. Customers can then choose between cash or a Sam Edelman credit as their form of payment.
