Launch of new Thin Mint collection to benefit girl scouts
Jul '08
Pastry, a division of Run Athletics Inc announced the launch of the Pastry Thin Mint Collection in which a portion of the proceeds will go to the Girl Scouts of the USA. The Collection, comprised of footwear and a backpack, will hit retail in mid-July 2008.

"Our relationship with the Girl Scouts is deeply meaningful to us," explains Vanessa Simmons. "To have the opportunity to further support their efforts of empowering young women with the creation of the Thin Mint Collection is very special."

Adds Angela Simmons, "We have had so much fun working with the girls; I feel they do more for us than we could ever do for them! We are hoping our relationship with the Girl Scouts organization continues to grow and develop."

Over the past year Vanessa and Angela have served as spokespersons for the Girl Scouts Organization inspiring girls across the country to participate in their Entrepreneurship and Financial Literacy programs.

From speaking to the Girl Scouts about their business endeavors to supporting the girls in their leadership initiatives, Vanessa and Angela have been doing whatever it takes to let these girls know they can be successful in whatever they do.

The Thin Mint Shoe is created from the body of the Pastry "Fab Cookie" sneaker with a range of materials including suede action leather with polyurethane trim.

Special attention was taken when designing this style down to the smallest detail with the inclusion of basic tenets of the Girl Scout philosophy scripted on the outsole of the shoe.

Pastry Thin Mint footwear is set to launch with two colorways, chocolate and white, in both women's and kids' sizes. The footwear and backpack will launch on Wednesday, July 16th.

Pastry Thin Mint collection can be found at specialty retailers in the US, including Finish Line, Underground Station and Lady Foot Locker.

Vanessa and Angela Simmons launched Pastry Footwear in March 2007 with the "Cake" collection and followed up with the "Fab Cookie" collection in August.

The "Fab Cookie" launch proved to be a huge success and the shoe is now being offered in a "hi-top" version. Pastry continues to win fashionable young ladies over with their fun, colorfully designed footwear.
