Casual shoe designer and producer Phoenix Footwear Group Inc on Thursday reported a 24.3 per cent jump in full-year net income to $1.7 million from $1.3m in the year-ago period. The Maine-based company, whose brands include Trotters and Softwalk, said net sales for 2002 fell to $36.2m from $46.9m due to the loss of sales generated by divested Slipper Brands.
