RECAP: August footwear trade shows

August was a busy month with Justin Blair territory managers David Bryan and Dan Beal attending two footwear tradshows, Northwest Shoe Travelers 2017 Buying Market and Kansas City Shoe Show.

In addition to seeing our entire Ralyn Shoe Care line of professional shoe care products, customers were eager to see the Pedifix P17 display, a 2-sided countertop spinner that gives your customers fast and easy access to Pedifix foot care products.

Customers were also intrigued by the Orthosleeve FS6, a compression foot sleeve that helps reduce swelling, improve circulation, and relieve foot pain.
