Telic Comfort Sandals (formerly Terox)
The true heritage and inspiration of Telic footwear dates back over a century ago to (CEO Rocco Azzarito’s grandfather) Francisco Azzarito. Born in the small southern Italian town of Sant’Agata Di Puglia, Francisco dreamed of coming to America.
Francisco was born the son of a shoe cobbler, and although he followed in his father’s trade, he always dreamed of building footwear in America.
Francisco landed on Ellis Island in the spring of 1920 when he was just sixteen years old. With no knowledge of the language or culture he settled in Brooklyn, NY. There, he changed his name to Frank because he wanted to be a “real” American. Frank pursued several jobs until he finally began making shoes at the I. Miller Shoe Company and eventually became the foreman of the factory.
Later, he served as the superintendent of the Fern Shoe Company in Los Angeles, CA until retirement. Fulfilling his dream, he enjoyed over a 50 year career of making footwear in the United States. In 1920, Frank came to America to fulfill his dream. Today, this dream lives on in our footwear.
The Telic Mission
In an industry dominated by foreign-made products, Telic has dealt with ample doubt and resistance. However, these barriers were overcome, and on the 4th of July 2012 (a fitting date) Telic was launched in the United States. “My Grandfather, Frank Azzarito, is truly the spirit that has moved us to rekindle the dream that America is a place where you can build footwear.
Our mission is to build great footwear and to be part of restoring the American footwear infrastructure,” declared Rocco Azzarito, our CEO of Telic International. “The easiest thing to do would have been to produce Telic sandals in Asia, but we made a decision not to go the easy route and committed the necessary investment to bring our production to America.”
The technology behind Telic’s comfort sandals
- Elasto-polymers provide superior cushioning and shock absorption
- Textured footbed has massaging effect and helps wick away moisture
- Heat activated: The shoe responds to your body heat, softening so that it feels like a natural extension of the foot
- Contours to your foot and provides arch support
- Earth friendly: Used shoes that are not provided to the needy are used to make new shoes
