Rocket Dog shoes is a range of footwear that began in Southern California in 1997 by Terry Anderson and Stephen Hoyt, when they launched their first shoe, a cork bottomed sandal with a jute upper. This shoe took California by storm and became the top selling sandal of the season, worn by trendsetters in Los Angeles and San Francisco. Hoyt’s perky little beach going dog Max was the inspiration for the logo.
Hoyt and Anderson had developed a flair for funky popular design whilst designing and marketing for top labels such as Candie and Espirit and decided to branch out on their own with Rocket Dog shoes, which have grown quickly in popularity since those early days.
The Rocket Dog range has a cute edginess which is popular among trendy city types as well as the surf crowd and is worn by celebrities such as Paris Hilton and Demi Moore to name a couple. The range includes a full line of shoes for girls and guys including sandals, sneakers, heels, boots and ballet flats – in other words something for everybody and for every occasion. There is also a cute kid’s range which is proving amazingly popular.
