Featured shoe and foot care products at the Chicago/Michigan shows

Justin Blair at Chicago Shoe Market 2018

What’s trending in shoe care and foot care?

We had a great turnout at the recent Chicago Shoe Market and Michigan Shoe Market Show. Justin Blair sales manager Dan Beal highlights below several products that were popular with customers.

Ralyn Shoe Care Center

The highly-noticeable Ralyn Shoe Care display attracts customers’ attention and keeps them coming back for more. Can be personalized with seasonal shoe care products—or a product mix that is unique to the store.

Rescue Wipes

The new, innovative Rescue Wipes clean and shine boots, shoes, sandals, and handbags with just a few wipes. No-mess and can be easily carried in a purse or briefcase.

Omni Massage Rollers

The Omni Massage Rollers (regular and mini size) are always popular and the POP countertop display is a great add-on item for shoe stores.

Orthosleeve FS6 Countertop Display

The top-selling FS6 Plantar Fasciitis Sock is a product that every shoe store can sell as they are asked about this topic daily. Plus, it’s a great product that really works! The  counter display make for easy selection and purchasing at point-of-purchase. Also available in a floor display.

Thank you to everyone that stopped by our booth…see you next time!

NEW: Ralyn Tongue Pads & Leather Shoe Grips

New Ralyn fitting aids

When it comes to feeling comfortable in shoes, it’s all about the fit—or should we say, fitting aid. Say hello to three new products we have added to our popular Ralyn “pillow pack” fitting aid collection. 

Men’s Tongue Pads and Women’s Tongue Pads are adhesive felt pads that are applied to the tongue of the shoe and help keep the heel from sliding forward by providing a tight fit at the instep. They are ideal for narrow feet or loose-fitting shoes.

Leather Shoe Grips are a leather version of our popular Shoe Grips. The soft leather cushion keeps the heel from rubbing, sliding or slipping and provides a secure, comfortable fit. They are ideal for loose-fitting shoes and can be used in men’s or women’s shoes.

Call our office at (800) 566-0664 to place an order or order online.

See these new fitting aids, plus the rest of the Ralyn Shoe Care collection, in person at our next Open House in Chicago on Sunday, April 29th (8 am–3 pm).
