Shoe and apparel company Rocky Shoes & Boots Inc has changed its name to Rocky Brands Inc to reflect its "diversified portfolio". Chairman and CEO Mike Brooks said: "The Rocky name is synonymous with quality, comfort, and durability and it will continue to serve as the foundation of our company into the future. "At the same time, we now operate a diversified portfolio of leading brands in addition to Rocky Outdoor Gear including Georgia Boot, Durango, Lehigh and Dickies, and we believe our new name better represents our expanded operations and our growing position in the marketplace." We move forward with a solid platform for growth and an organization focused on capitalizing on the many opportunities that still lie ahead."
