    By Fani Kelesidou - May 1, 2013 | Tickers: DECK, SHOO, WWW

    Deckers Outdoor (NASDAQ: DECK), the company behind the Ugg brand, was sort of left up the creek last October when its shares reached rock-bottom levels. Everyone assumed that Uggs had gone out of style. But a cold winter, a turn lower in fleece prices, and a couple of analysts' upgrades were enough to jump-start the stock price. Deckers is up by almost 35% year-to-date. Not only that, but last Thursday more »

    Editor's Note: Information on Wolverine World Wide has been modified in this amended article

    After a relatively solid fiscal third quarter results announcement, is there still upside for Nike (NYSE: NKE) despite being up over 10% year to date? I think so. The footwear and apparel company stills appears to be trading "cheaply" from a valuation standpoint; especially, in the context of its competitors.

    Although Crocs (NASDAQ: CROX) opened for business in 1999, it took about a half-dozen years before its colorful injection-molded clogs hit anyone’s radar. But when they did hit, they hit big.
