Resurrecting the operations of its sales subsidiary in California, which it had suspended in 2005, Aicad has decided to relaunch its recently updated Lizard line of footwear. Still designed and manufactured in Italy, it has been expanded from sports sandals to include some interesting lightweight closed-toe models. Martin Hak has been hired as commercial director. Born in the Czech Republic, he remains a partner in the company that distributes Zamberlan in the U.S. Lizard registered strong interest from buyers at the Outdoor Retailer show in Salt Lake City. Aicad plans to keep some inventory in the U.S. at the disposal of its local clients.
