On being asked of the Xtep’s USP, Aditya Tripathi, Head (Brand Operations), Xtep India, highlighted, “It’s very difficult to make a brand and maintain its status, when it comes to the sports industry. The main things that set us apart from others is ‘quality & comfort’ that we are giving to our customers at very affordable prices. In the last 20 years, the brand has spent a great deal of time in design and technology to bring the world’s best for customers’.”
“Xtep understands the latest trends and needs of athletics. We design products scientifically to meet requirements like durability, endurance and performance standards etc.” added Aditya.

Opening of such stores in the region will not just only generate employment for people who have lost their jobs during the times of the pandemic but will also increase the footfall at malls after a long hiatus thereby reviving the mall culture in tricity.”
