Kohl's also announced an agreement with Quiksilver to design the collection and its packaging.

“This partnership strengthens our position in the sportswear category.

The new collection will feature Hang Ten's distinctive footprint logo and include fun, trend-right merchandise for juniors', young men's, boys' 8-20, girls' 7-16 and girls' 4-6x.

“We are thrilled to be able to combine the iconic two feet of Hang Ten with the extraordinary vision and reach of Kohl's,” said Frederick J. Horowitz, partner, American Brand Holdings.

“Working together with Kohl's, we look forwardto bringing the fun and excitement of the original surf brand to millions of boys and girls, teens and their moms and dads. Kohl's truly understands the full potential of the Hang Ten lifestyle and we are excited by their commitment to create a line of products ranging from clothing to accessories.”
