The show highlighted all the collections in collaboration with ace designer Rocky S, post which the guests entered a brand experience zone to view the displayed collection up close and more intimately. The brand has launched with 5 different collections; The Achiever, The Wingman, The Debonair, The Superstar and The Alpha.

The spokespersons representing the brand are Mr. Vikas Kohli (Managing Director), Mr. Vaibhav Arora (Director – Sales & Marketing), Mr. Sanjay Dhingra (Director – Operations), Mr. Nakul Manchanda (Director – Sourcing) and Mr. Ajay Gupta (Director – Sales & Offline Commercials). They strongly believe that this footwear, made out of the finest materials, imprints a bold statement as bespoke footwear and gives a chance to men across all ages to style their look in the trendiest way.
Mr. Vikas Kohli believes that the brand will evolve just like Virat. “With the introduction of formal footwear and socks, the brand aims to equip Virat’s fans and everyone else with the tools that are needed to excel, at work and in life. It was an easy conversation with Virat as knowing him, and his drive for attention to detail, it was clear the formal line of footwear is where his principles can come to life.”, said Mr. Vikas Kohli. “With One8 Select we want to stand out in the realm of formal footwear and bring to life Virat’s vision of excellence and consistency with every step we take. Virat has a tremendous fan base and for many he is an inspiration and an icon and with One8 Select we aim to bridge the gap between the two and bring the supporters close to Virat through our offerings” says Mr. Vaibhav Arora. Director of Sourcing, Nakul Manchanda says that, “Understanding the need of the consumer and looking for the right product that just pushing a product is what we looked at with the launch of One8 Select.” Adding to that Sanjay Dhingra mentions that, “With the launch of One8 Select, our aim is not only to bring the product to the market but to ensure it is readily available and our consumer are spoilt for choice.” “Throughout my foray in sales and provisions I have understood that a product travels far when its good, but it goes further when we know what the consumer is looking for. Addressing the vacuum of luxury is affordable where One8 Select comes into play.”, Ajay Gupta.
The brand aims to build upon their existing range in the coming months and cater to all demographics across all ages even further. They envision a future where this collection strikes a chord with not just Indian but International audiences. The brand will be selling both online with Amazon as their exclusive e-commerce partner and across multi brand stores.
