Boot sales, with their high ASPs should offset on going weakness in boat shoes. Guidance appears reasonable, as it assumes a deceleration for the balance of the quarter. Through an improved mix (women’s fashion), increased efficiencies, and a broader footprint, SCVL will meet or exceed expectations over time.”
