VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Stonz®, the award-winning creator of baby boots and high-quality infant and children's outerwear, today unveiled its complete 2012 line-up of the company's popular Booties, Hatz and Mittz that keep little hands, feet and heads warm and safe through many seasons. Among the highlights this year are an improved product design for the mitts – recently named a 2012 "top choice" and "kids product" of the year from Creative Child magazine – and brand new styles for Stonz' popular line of innovative baby boots. The collection is available at www.stonzwear.com.
Improved Mittz Design
New for 2012, Stonz has completely redesigned their Toddler/Youth Mittz. The mitts are a go-to favorite for active outdoor families, as the "over the arm" design and five layers of warmth ensure maximum protection. Importantly, convenient toggle clasps keeps the warm mitts in place.
Based on fan feedback and the company's core values of function, style, innovation and quality, the new-and-improved Stonz Mittz now include:
- Clips to ensure mitts don't get lost
- Back of thumb fleece, to relieve wet noses
- A more natural shape and increased flexibility, built to mimic a hand's natural curve
- New colors including two-toned styles and solid colors with appliques
- Extra-long sleeves to cover outerwear and prevent the weather from entering
- Durable weatherproof outer shell due to water and wind-resistant coated nylon
- Inventive toggle system allowing the child to fasten his or her own mitts
- Improved insulation with Thinsulate™, an extra-thin layer that keeps the mitts soft and flexible
New Styles for Booties
Stonz signature award-winning Booties have eight new designs to choose from this year, including: Cherries; Heart; Heart with Wings; Butterfly; Flames, Robot, Monkey and Sneaker. The new designs complement Stonz existing 17 options to provide shoppers a full range of style options.
A must-have item for active and on-the-go families with young ones, Stonz' durable nylon and fleece-lined baby boots are designed to easily slip over socks, slippers, shoes or bare feet, and are fastened securely in place by two adjustable toggles, similar to the mitts, to ensure they stay on little feet. The unique Booties also cover up well into the calf area to protect both feet and exposed ankles, particularly when they are dangling from strollers or carriers.
The soft-soled baby boots – recommended for developing feet – are also water and wind resistant, and feature flexible fabric and a roomy fit that allows for extended wear throughout many weather seasons. Sizes are available to fit newborns through toddlers. In addition, extra warm fleece Linerz can be purchased to slip inside the Booties, keeping tootsies even cozier in very cold climates.
Rounding out the Mittz and Booties collection, Stonz also offers durable fleece Reversible Hatz and Pointed Hatz in corresponding colors and designs, enabling children to bundle up in style. The baby boots, liners, hats and mitts are all handmade with high-quality fabrics and come in a wide variety of styles, from fun patterns to country flags, solid colors, animal appliques and more.
