ENKWSA attendees gathered at Encore Beach Club to toast Deckers Outdoor Corp. CEO Angel Martinez, who received the first Footwear Industry Icon Award. The party was co-hosted by the show organizers and Deckers’ Ahnu brand. “[Angel] has had a tremendous impact on not only his organization but on the broader industry,” said David Kahan, president of ENK Footwear Group. For his part, Martinez joked that “if we can get people to buy a pair or two more of Ahnu a year, we’ll all be a little better off, and we’ll get to have more parties.”
