In an industry dominated by foreign-made products, Telic has dealt with ample doubt and resistance. However, these barriers were overcome, and on the 4th of July 2012 (a fitting date) Telic was launched in the United States.
“My Grandfather, Frank Azzarito, is truly the spirit that has moved us to rekindle the dream that America is a place where you can build footwear. Our mission is to build great footwear and to be part of restoring the American footwear infrastructure,” declared Rocco Azzarito, our CEO of Telic International. “The easiest thing to do would have been to produce Telic sandals overseas, but we made a decision not to go the easy route and committed the necessary investment to bring our production to America.”
