This initial order will put the "Flip the Switch" product in more than 20 stores for the coming holiday season. Finish Line is a leader in the athletic apparel industry with more than 400 stores nationwide, serving customers in 41 states.

Lonell Morrison, men's apparel buyer for Finish Line, said: "FTS comes to the table with a fresh approach combined with a quality product that incorporates the details necessary to generate success at the retail level and fill a void in our mix." FTS Apparel president, Roger Burnett, said: "As our brand continues to build momentum, it is imperative for us to align ourselves with forward-looking companies like Finish Line who understand where the industry is moving and are willing to take chances to stay ahead of that movement.
