The footwear range will include shoes for men and women

French luxury goods group PPR has confirmed plans to launch a footwear range under the Volcom brand during autumn next year.

The closed-toe line, which includes shoes for men and women featuring asymmetric lines and black and white contrasting outsoles, will be available in stores next July. 

The range will not include technical shoes, a spokesperson for PPR told just-style today (6 November).

PPR said the footwear range has been developed with Puma's help and expertise. The company bought the Volcom action sports apparel company last summer, and currently sells a limited collection of footwear including flip flops.
