The range will include indoor slippers, beach slippers, trainers, children's shoes, rain boots and snow boots. The footwear will be available later this year or early 2011 at major French shoe retailers with more than 200 outlets throughout France and the Benelux region. Off Road will also distribute through mail order and Web, as well as hypermarkets and supermarket chains.
"We are delighted to collaborate with Off Road for the licensing and merchandising of Jungle Book footwear products for France and Benelux," says Tapaas Chakravarti, chairman and chief executive officer of DQE Group. "The Jungle Book with its modern 3-D adaptation will work perfectly for the licensing and merchandising markets and will be loved by children and adults alike."
TF1 Enterprises France, DQE's co-production partner and licensing agent for the Jungle Book, brokered the deal.
