What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

Hands-free Shoe Cover

Step In LLC. is excited to offer the first, fully self-sufficient, hands-free shoe cover.

In early 2015, a vision was realized after breaking the backs of so many work shoes. Something had to be done about this. The simple solution would have been to just accept the limited option of shoe covers and struggle to put them on. This option could not be accepted, so a mission was formed: Floors needed to stay clean and shoes needed to stay on.

Broken Shoes that Started it all

After many tough months of failed designs and ideas that came up short, we started to see great potential in the idea and it finally started to become a reality. Long nights and never giving up resulted in a product we can be proud of and finally step in! Step in Sock was born!

Risks and challenges

I am currently making Step in Sock hands-free shoe cover at night myself and can't keep up with manufacturing to increase customers.

Step in Sock is patent pending and would like to raise money to farther protect its utility.
