advised, and shall cause Newco to keep Itochu reasonably advised, from time to
time and as may be reasonably requested by Itochu, of the terms and conditions

otherwise provide alternative credit arrangements or facilities that Newco may
draw upon, as may be reasonably acceptable to Newco and Itochu. Any escrow
account established pursuant to this Section 2.5 shall be in the name of a
mutually agreed third party escrow agent, shall be opened with a branch or
office of a United States bank agreed upon by Cre-8-Net and Itochu (the "BANK")
pursuant to Bank's customary escrow agreement, and all funds placed therein
shall be invested in money market funds or investment grade rated interest
bearing instruments.

      2.6 Release of Funds; Closing. Cre-8-Net shall not, and shall cause Newco
not to, draw upon, use or otherwise commit such escrow account or alternative
credit arrangements or facilities unless and until all the conditions precedent

Subject to the foregoing, the consummation of the transactions contemplated
under this Agreement shall take place concurrently with the closing of the
Converse Purchase (the "CLOSING DATE").

offer to effect the Converse Purchase or is otherwise unsuccessful in its
efforts to complete the Converse Purchase, Newco shall, and Cre-8-Net shall
cause Newco to, release and return immediately to Itochu the Purchase Price and
any alternative credit arrangements or facilities provided by Itochu as directed
by Itochu in writing, in the original currency provided by Itochu together with

shall cause Newco to, release and return immediately to Itochu the Purchase

provide Perseus Capital (or any other entity providing equity financing to

and option (but not the obligation) to enter into the licensing arrangement

mutually agreed terms.

for itself, can bear the economic risk of its investment, and has such knowledge
and experience in financial or business matters that it is capable of evaluating
the merits and risks of the investment in the Shares.

                (iii) Restricted Securities. Itochu understands that the Shares
are characterized as "restricted securities" under the U.S. federal securities
laws inasmuch as they are being acquired from Newco in a transaction not
involving a public offering and that under such laws and applicable regulations
such securities may be resold without registration under the Securities
<PAGE>
Act, only in certain limited circumstances. Itochu understands that no public
market presently exists for the securities of Newco, and that there are no
assurances that any such market will be created.

                (iv) Further Limitations on Disposition. Without in any way
limiting the above, Itochu further agrees not to make any disposition of all or
any portion of the Shares, unless and until the transferee has agreed in writing
for the benefit of Newco to be bound by this Section 6.2(c) and Section 4.3 of
this Agreement, and:

                    (1) There is then in effect a registration statement under
the Securities Act covering such proposed disposition and such disposition is
made in accordance with such registration statement; or

                    (2) Itochu shall have notified Newco of the proposed
disposition, and if reasonably requested by Newco, Itochu shall have furnished
Newco with an opinion of counsel, reasonably satisfactory to Newco, that such
disposition will not require registration of such shares under the Securities
Act.

                (v) Legends. It is understood that the certificate(s) evidencing
the Shares shall bear the following legends:

            THE SHARES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE HAVE BEEN ACQUIRED FOR
            INVESTMENT AND HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF
            1933, AS AMENDED. SUCH SHARES MAY NOT BE SOLD OR TRANSFERRED IN THE
            ABSENCE OF SUCH REGISTRATION OR UNLESS THE CORPORATION RECEIVES AN
            OPINION OF COUNSEL REASONABLY ACCEPTABLE TO IT STATING THAT SUCH
            SALE OR TRANSFER IS EXEMPT FROM THE REGISTRATION AND PROSPECTUS
            DELIVERY REQUIREMENTS OF SAID ACT OR UNLESS SOLD PURSUANT TO RULE
            144 OF THE ACT. COPIES OF THE AGREEMENTS COVERING THE PURCHASE OF
            THESE SHARES AND RESTRICTING THEIR TRANSFER MAY BE OBTAINED AT NO
            COST BY WRITTEN REQUEST MADE BY THE HOLDER OF RECORD OF THIS

      The provisions of this Section 8 shall be effective on and after the
Closing Date.
<PAGE>
8.1      Right of First Refusal on Itochu's Newco Stock.

            (a) Right of First Refusal. For eighteen (18) months from the
Closing Date, Itochu shall not Transfer any shares of Newco capital stock owned
by it. Thereafter, before any shares of Newco capital stock owned by Itochu may
be sold or otherwise Transferred, Newco or its assigns shall have a right of
first refusal to purchase all such shares on the terms and conditions set forth
in this Section 8.1 (the "STOCK RIGHT OF FIRST REFUSAL").

            (b) Notice of Proposed Transfer. Itochu shall deliver to Newco a
written notice (the "STOCK DISPOSITION NOTICE") describing the purchase offer
(the "PURCHASE OFFER") stating: (i) Itochu's bona fide intention to sell or
otherwise Transfer such shares (the "OFFERED SHARES"); (ii) the name of each
proposed purchaser or other transferee (the "PROPOSED TRANSFEREE"); (iii) the
number of Offered Shares to be transferred to each Proposed Transferee; and (iv)
the per share bona fide cash price or other consideration for which Itochu
proposes to transfer the Offered Shares (the "OFFERED PRICE"), and Itochu shall
offer the Offered Shares at the Offered Price to Newco or its assignee(s).

            (c) Exercise of Right of First Refusal. The Stock Right of First
Refusal may be exercised in whole by delivery by Newco and/or its assignees of a
written notice ("ELECTION NOTICE") delivered to Itochu within ninety (90)
calendar days after receiving the Stock Disposition Notice. Newco and/or its
assignee(s) shall have the right and option (but not the obligation) to purchase
all the Offered Shares in their entirety at the Price (defined below).

            (d) Purchase Price; Payment. The per share purchase price ("PRICE")
for the Offered Shares purchased by Newco or its assignees under this Section
8.1 shall be the Offered Price per share. If the Offered Price includes
consideration other than cash, the cash equivalent value of the non-cash
consideration shall be determined through the good faith negotiations by Newco
or its assignee and Itochu. Payment of the Price shall be made in cash (by
check) within thirty (30) days after receipt of the Election Notice or in the
manner and at the times set forth in the Election Notice.

            (e) Right to Transfer. If the Offered Shares are not purchased by
Newco or its assignees, then Itochu may sell or otherwise transfer the Offered
Shares in their entirety to the Proposed Transferee at the Offered Price or at a
higher price, provided, that, such sale or other transfer is consummated within
ninety (90) days after the date of the Election Notice and, provided, further,
that any such sale or other transfer is effected in accordance with any
applicable securities laws and the Proposed Transferee agrees in writing that
the provisions of Section 4.3 and Section 6.2(c) shall continue to apply to the
Offered Shares held by such Proposed Transferee. If the Offered Shares are not
transferred to the Proposed Transferee within such period, a new Notice shall be
given to Newco and Newco shall again be offered the Right of First Refusal
before any shares of Newco capital stock can be sold by Itochu.

            (f) StopTransfer. Any attempt by Itochu to Transfer any shares of
Newco capital stock in violation of this Section 8.1 shall be void and Newco
shall be permitted not effect such a Transfer, not treat any alleged transferee
as the holder of such shares and stop transfer of such attempted Transfer.
<PAGE>
            (g) Exclusions. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Itochu shall have the
right to Transfer all or part of its shares of Newco capital stock to one or
more majority owned subsidiaries of Itochu which agree in writing to be bound by
all of the provisions of this Agreement which otherwise constitute obligations
of Itochu with respect to the Shares.

            (h) Termination of Stock Right of First Refusal. The provisions of
Section 8.1 shall terminate immediately prior to the closing of a Qualified IPO
or a Newco Change of Control.

      8.2 Japanese Footwear Trademark Right of First Negotiation and First
Refusal.

            (a) Right of First Negotiation. If Itochu proposes to Transfer the
Japanese Footwear Trademarks or the trademarks and related rights in any other
countries for which Itochu acquires distribution rights pursuant to Section 5.1
or 5.2 (collectively, the "OTHER TRADEMARKS"), Itochu shall negotiate
exclusively with Newco for a period of ninety (90) days prior to any such
Transfer. Itochu's foregoing obligation shall be deemed to have been satisfied
if Itochu, prior to any initiation of discussions with any third parties
regarding such Transfer, notified Newco of its desire to Transfer such
trademarks and related rights and shall have negotiated exclusively with Newco
for a period of ninety (90) days regarding such Transfer.

            (b) Right of First Refusal; Notice. Itochu shall not Transfer the
Japanese Footwear Trademarks or the Other Trademarks or any interest therein
without first giving written notice of the proposed Transfer to Newco setting
forth in reasonable detail the proposed assignee, the marks and related rights
proposed to be Transferred, and the price and other terms and conditions of the
Transfer (the "TRADEMARK TRANSFER NOTICE").

            (c) Exercise of Trademark Right of First Refusal. Newco or any of
its majority owned subsidiaries shall have the right and option (but not the
obligation) to purchase all of the marks and associated rights specified in the
Trademark Transfer Notice for a price equal to the price (and on the other terms
and conditions) specified in the Trademark Transfer Notice. If Newco or its
majority owned subsidiary does not wish to purchase all of the marks and
associated rights specified in the Trademark Transfer Notice, Newco shall give
written notice to Itochu as promptly as practicable. Unless Newco gives written
notice declining the purchase proposed in the Trademark Transfer Notice, Newco
or its majority owned subsidiary shall have ninety (90) days following receipt
of the Trademark Transfer Notice to consummate the purchase with Itochu on
mutually agreed terms.

            (d) Right to Transfer. If Itochu and Newco or its majority owned
subsidiary do not agree to terms on the Transfer under this Section 8.2, Itochu
shall have the right to consummate the arrangement described in the Trademark
Transfer Notice; provided, that, the ultimate terms of the arrangement are not
materially more favorable to the transferee than those described in the
Trademark Transfer Notice and provided further that such transaction is
consummated within ninety (90) days after, as applicable, Newco's written notice
declining the Transfer proposed in the Trademark Transfer Notice or the one
hundredth eighty-first (181st) day after Newco's receipt of the Trademark
Transfer Notice. If Itochu is unable to consummate such Transfer in accordance
with the terms of this Section 8.2(d), Itochu's right of first refusal shall
again apply.
<PAGE>
            (e) Exclusions. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Itochu shall have the
right to Transfer all or part of the Japanese Footwear Trademarks or the Other
Trademarks to one or more majority owned subsidiaries of Itochu which agree in
writing to be bound by all of the provisions of this Agreement to the extent
those provisions would be obligations of Itochu in relation to the specific
Transferred Japanese Footwear Trademarks or the Other Trademarks.
