SOCKWA CORPORATION IS OFFICIAL FOOTWEAR SPONSOR
FOR 2014 EVP BEACH VOLLEYBALL TOUR
Ventura, CA – February 16, 2014 – Sockwa Corporation is pleased to announce that they will be the official footwear sponsor of the 2014 EVP® Pro-Am Beach Volleyball Tour, the largest national beach volleyball tour. “The EVP tour sponsorship provides an effective launching pad for Sockwa in the U.S. market with coast-to-coast reach across a range of media. We look forward to working together with the EVP and its loyal athletes, staff and participants,” stated Sockwa founder, David Zasloff.
The EVP® Tour was established in 1994 by Ross Balling to teach others the sport that he loves so dearly. The EVP Team has brought together a tour of Volleyball Professionals to play and teach the game of Beach Volleyball. The Volleyball Professionals teach students at the EVP Academies where students learn quality volleyball instruction and program management. They have trained over 20,000 students to date.
The EVP Tour supports beach volleyball events that engage families, fans, athletes, students, communities and sponsors in a great day at the beach. Not only do the fans get to watch top athletes compete on the sand, but they also get to interact with players in contests and promotions and feel as they are a part of the event.
“The EVP Tour has the youthful, active, healthy image that resonates with Sockwa consumers’ active lifestyles and their effective management of work, sport, and social, with dedication to balancing overall health and wellness,” commented David Zasloff, Founder & CEO of Sockwa.
Sockwa and the EVP Tour will visit sixteen key markets across the country yearly from May through September. The EVP Tour is a founding member for the Beach Sports Network visible on the Comcast Sports Network. Sockwa will also participate in the EVP Youth, Junior Series and Regional Amateur Tournaments as part of its 2014 sponsorship.
“I am thrilled to have Sockwa as the footwear sponsor of the EVP Tour,” said Ross Balling, Tour Commissioner. “The Tour staff and players are excited to be wearing Sockwa on the beach all season.”

Sockwa is a new breed of footwear that is versatile, lightweight, and comfortable. Sockwa was born on the beaches of Southern California. Their first product was the Playa Lo, a beach sock for casual use. Hardcore beach athletes soon began to desire a SOCK With Attitude to keep all the sand out while they scissor-kick and slam their way to victory. This Sockwa Playa Hi has a high ankle Velcro strap that keeps all of the sand out while not getting blown out like the competition.
Sockwa has evolved to everyday footwear launching their Beach Sneaker line with the thinnest outsole possible. Our thin, but durable, TPU sole is tactile and provides traction. Sockwa has become more sustainable by introducing the X8, made of a recyclable, anti-odor, non-toxic fabric, Ariaprene, our second step toward environmentally friendly footwear. Free your sole.
