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.

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.
