Look no further than Anthropologie if you're desiring quirky Peruvian-made flats, heels and boots. Shoes from the Austin-based line Fortress of Inca will soon be available at area stores come this August.
"I think Anthropologie came at the right time. This is a really big step for us," founder Evan Streusand said to CultureMap Austin. "They have the perfect customer for us. And it's really cool that we are selling to them."
Previously, the brand was available at a smattering of small retailers nationwide, including at The Gypsy Wagon in Dallas. This fall, expect a men's collection, inspired by a pair of boots Streusand bought during a trip to Peru a decade ago.
