Ahnu Footwear has formed two new retail partnerships that will send the brand past the 800-retailer milestone in spring 2009. Both The Walking Company and Eddie Bauer will begin carrying Ahnu men’s and women’s designs.

The partnership with The Walking Company will add 50 retail doors for Ahnu, while Eddie Bauer will deliver the brand to 213 storefronts in North America.

Ahnu Footwear debuted in spring 2007 in 263 storefronts. The brand has since grown its retail base by more than 90% to a mark of 500 storefronts. The growth to 800 retailers by next spring will reflect more than 200% growth.
