It will also focus on its global and wholesale businesses, which it said have thrived throughout recent years.

Aerosoles' holding company AGI Hold said it would continue to manage its stores and operate its businesses as "debtors in possession". "We will continue to create product that leads the market in comfort and fashion, grow our ecommerce, wholesale and worldwide businesses, and promote innovative new marketing campaigns that will drive our business forward". The Petition reports $50 million to $100 million in assets and $100 million to $500 million in liabilities.

The company will maintain four main locations across NY and New Jersey while it implements the restructuring process - which is expected to span the course of four months.
