We all have our favorite brand of shoes that are easy on our feet and very comfortable. My favorite brand of shoes are Skechers..

I've been wearing Skechers for the past ten years now because they feel great on my feet. Skechers is now the third largest athletic footwear brand in the United States.

Did you hear about a footwear company moving their headquarters to Grand Rapids, Michigan?

Either did I until now. The company is called "HOLO" Footwear. This company is coming from Portland, Oregon. Here's the best part of this deal. It will create close to 60 jobs and a $1.5 million capital investment.

According to mlive.com

HOLO Footwear, which is minority-owned and describes itself as a sustainable outdoor footwear company, plans to lease space at a downtown office building, 50 Louis St. NW, and hire up to 61 workers with an average wage of $1,629 per week plus benefits, according to a memo from the Michigan Economic Development Corporation..

I'm not sure if you do much shopping at Dick's Sporting Goods, but you can actually find HOLO Footwear not only at Dick's Sporting Goods, but at Macy's as well.

You may want to consider HOLO Footwear sometime in the near future, because I'm hearing good things about this company.

Mlive.com adds:

“As HOLO continues to expand, we found that West Michigan is an excellent location for our growth,” Vega said in a news release. “It’s a fantastic environment for our business, with access to talented designers and people from the footwear industry. We’re excited to get to work to create stylish, responsible and functional outdoor footwear.”

Looking forward to seeing HOLO Footwear in Grand Rapids very soon.
