Xti Footwear is trading up. The Spanish company says it successfully launched the first collection of Carmela, a new brand of premium women's leather footwear, at the recent Momad Shoes show in Madrid, for the next autumn/winter season. Contrary to most of Xti's other products, which are mostly made in the Far East, the Carmela line is manufactured in Spain. Xti also triggered strong demand for its more avantgarde Bass 3D line of sports-casual shoes, which was first launched for the spring/summer 2015 season.
