In early 2015, I was wearing through the back of so many work shoes that I went looking for a good shoe cover. There were no good ones. The existing shoe covers were not durable, not reusable, not easy-to-use, or not even water-resistant. I set out to build a better shoe cover: one that was easy-to-use, hands-free, reusable, washable, water-resistant, and very durable.

Broken Shoes that Started it all 

EVOLUTION OF STEP IN SOCK

I spent many tough months trying out failed designs and implementing ideas that came up short. Through those designs, I came up with the shoe cover that was so simple but effective: a shoe cover that you just step in and it snaps closed around your foot! Step in Sock was born!

You Spoke, We Listened...  

The general feedback from our earlier designs was that the covers were difficult to open. We took that input: the new and improved Step in Sock was born! Our engineer added a new mechanism inside the cover to make it easier to open! We created the best shoe cover that is usable in so many applications.

The Step In Sock keeps your floors and your shoes protected and clean:

  • Wear them indoors to keep your dirty shoes off of your clean floors
  • Wear them outside to keep dirt, water, grease and other grime off of your clean shoes and keep your shoes from wearing out

There are so many applications:

  • Around the house
  • Construction - walk across that nice carpet you just installed without tracking in the mud from outside
  • Athletes - wear your cleats inside without any dirt or damage to your floors
  • Bowlers - step outside without damaging your bowling shoes
  • Auto Repair - keep the oil, grease, and fluids from getting inside the nice cars you are working on
  • Outdoors men - step back into your truck or house without dragging all of the outdoors with you
  • Residential service workers 
  • Many more!

We provide the easiest way to step into a shoe cover and having it automatically hold onto your shoe, protecting your footwear or allowing for an easier and faster day at work. At the end of the day just rinse and wipe clean!

The bottom of the cover is constructed with quality PVC synthetic leather, a tacky material for better gripping. Great for use on slick flooring.

The top is nylon coated with polyurethane for water resistance and to stay clean

 The water resistant material is strong and easy to clean, just wipe clean and reuse for over 5 months!

Risks and challenges

Please note that this is our second campaign. Due to the unpreparedness of such an overwhelming response and an oversight in manufacturing logistics, we had to cease operations of our first campaign.

Learning from our mistakes, we have locked-in a new manufacturer with the ability to deliver our quality product in a more time efficient manner. We also took the feedback from our previous campaign and re-engineered our original cover design to have higher quality material and ease of use. By upgrading the mechanics, design, and production process, everyone will notice a much improved shoe cover from our original concept.
