Giesswein USA Partners with Press Forward on Media Outreach


LEWISTON, ME — Giesswein USA, the US-based distributor of Austrian-made boiled wool footwear, has partnered with Press Forward for media outreach in the North American market.

“Press Forward has brought a lot of enthusiasm to the table right from the get-go, and we are looking forward to working with a fellow New England-based firm to increase our brand awareness nationwide,” said Matt Tracy, president of Giesswein USA. “We believe this partnership will help us reach new audiences in new categories, and we’re excited to be working with a team that is passionate about our product and story.”

Giesswein makes breathable and supportive boiled-wool footwear for indoors and out. Designed in the US and made in Austria, Giesswein offers a better footwear solution for time spent at home. The soft, durable boiled wool uppers regulate body temperature and wick away moisture; Giesswein’s removable footbeds with anatomically correct arch supports, available in a range of levels of support, contribute to healthy feet, legs, and backs. Giesswein is committed to environmentally conscious manufacturing and the use of natural materials.

“Giesswein brings thoughtful design and topnotch quality to their lodge shoes and houseshoes, and we’re thrilled to be partnering with them to share their story,” said Kathryn Flagg, partner at Press Forward.
