Copy, the four-year-old men’s brand known for its upstreet, contemporary styling, is launching a footwear line for the fall.
Inspired by travel and classic silhouettes, the debut collection features shoes that are one part vintage, one part sneaker and another dress shoe, and come in five styles, each available in three distinct color ways.
“I have always wanted to add footwear to the Copy range and have had a fetish for experimental shoe design for a long time,” said Copy founder and designer Murphy Martines. “Now, working with Four Star Distribution, it was a natural fit. This is their area of expertise and is potentially a major growth area for the brand,” Martines added, referring to the brand’s newest joint venture with the group owner of C1RCA.
Ranging from the futuristic “Elevate” high-top to the modern low-top “Studio” and button-enhanced “Tap,” the footwear forms a natural complement to the fall apparel line and comes in colors such as black, white, purple, aqua blue, slate blue, griffin gray and soft yellow. Made from full-grain leather, patent leather, suede and canvas, the collection is expected to retail from $75 to $150 at better department and specialty stores.

Four Star Distribution’s only child just got a baby brother.
Martines used to have to direct both the business and creative sides of the Copy line, which can be found at stores such as Urban Outfitters and American Rag. But the new venture has taken a load off his back, he said. Now the 32-year-old can focus completely on making clothes and leave business matters to Four Star.
In addition, Copy has moved its headquarters from Ladera Ranch to Four Star’s San Clemente office.
“Whenever we partner with people, we want them to have a vision. Murphy has a real sense of where he wants the brand to go,” Benavides said, adding that Four Star plans to make a substantial investment in Copy.
Martines started as a freelancer for Four Star and was being courted for the company’s culture squad, a group that helps stake out fashion trends. But the more company leaders saw his work, the more they liked it.
“We knew we had to take it to the next level,” Benavides said.
Martines, who has a background in industrial design, said he plans to create new shoe, outerwear and denim lines this season. He also plans to design a new collection every month, much like large-scale fashion titans.
“My goal is to become a global fashion brand, eventually opening up my own retail store,” he said.
