Kane partners with Kari Pearce to launch shoe inspired by her athletic journey
Westport, CT (September 19, 2023) /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – Kane Footwear is proud to announce their partnership with Crossfit athlete Kari Pearce. The six-time CrossFit Games athlete was a perfect fit for Kane’s team: her experience in gymnastics and competitive fitness have taught her the importance of recovery and taking care of yourself. Her shoe includes the tagline: Love Your Body, Love Yourself.
Pearce is a highly decorated athlete: She was recognized four times as the Fittest American Female, and was the Big Ten Gymnastics Champion four years in a row. In 2020, Pearce was awarded the 3rd fittest woman on earth. In order to win her successive titles, Pearce had to overcome self-criticism to love and take care of her body.
“The Kane collaboration is very meaningful to me because when people look at this shoe right
before they put it on, they will see “Love Your Body, Love Yourself,” Pearce said. “That is part of why you are putting on the shoe. Either you are going for a walk or hike, getting ready to workout, or just finished a workout or maybe you just want to show your feet some love. You are caring for your body which is one of the best forms of self love there is! Also the KP on the back is there to remind you that you aren’t alone and I’m cheering you on each step the entire way!”
To celebrate her introduction to the Kane Footwear team, Pearce designed her own Kane Footwear shoe. The shoe features a black upper with a rainbow speckled bottom, and includes Pearce’s motto of “Love Your Body, Love Yourself.”
“Pearce’s dedication to self-love and self-care make her the perfect addition to the Kane team,” John Gagliardi, Kane Footwear Founder and CEO said. “Not only is she an exceptional, award-winning athlete – she recognizes the importance of having a strong physical and mental game. At Kane, we know that recovery takes intentionality – Pearce embodies that intentionality perfectly.”
