Hungry for the SA-ME

Feb 22 , 2021


Sometimes it’s all about building the buzz. Here’s an example: We receive an email announcing that someone re-tweeted someone else’s Twitter post. Really? The news in this is that somebody knows how to link to a 140-character-limited message that’s been written by another person. It makes the head spin.

At FUGU, we have other ideas on what’s newsworthy. We give you The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Well, it’s not news quite yet (look for it in theaters November 22, just in time to ride the Thanksgiving holiday movie wave). A movie franchise and our shoes? Yep:

Hollywood contacted us a while back about using our SA-ME shoes for the movie, and we gladly obliged. Haven’t seen the script, so we don’t know if finer footwear is a central plot point in the film. But we’re confident that Jennifer Lawrence and Woody Harrelson and Donald Sutherland and whoever else might have worn our gear during the filming of The Hunger Games sequel were very, very comfortable.

Start with the recycled rubber and canvas-with-cotton mixture, all vegan-friendly. Then take in the double-velcro scotch technology, providing maximum grip and non-crimping comfort. Move into the instant realization that they’re designed for nearly every occasion and extremely lightweight. And top it off with the ankle-hugging pleasure. Put all that together, and you have a magnificent pair of shoes.

The SA-ME are available in black, black with red stitching, and grey. Whether you are running around in the woods with a survival instinct on your face until the director yells “Cut!” or simply walking down the street to buy a soda and a granola bar, the SA-ME by FUGU is sure to please your soles, your body, and all the rest of you. Go ahead: tweet and re-tweet that. We won’t mind.

FUGU. We’ve got you covered.
