Effective July 1, Feetures!, the maker of socks, will transfer distribution of their Plantar Fasciitis Sleeve and Plantar + Calf Sleeve to the products’ manufacturers, ING Source Inc.
ING Source will now distribute those products directly to the sports market under its International Brand, OS1st “Brace Layer System”.
Like Feetures!, ING Source is a NC-based, family owned business, with a main focus on supporting specialty retailers, professional trainers and medical providers. ING Source has been selling their innovative compression, orthopedic and rehabilitation products to the medical and other specialty markets since 2012.
“It has been a pleasure working with ING Source to introduce their innovative Plantar Fasciitis Sleeve and Plantar + Calf Sleeve to the run specialty industry,” said Feetures! President, Hugh Gaither. “We are confident that they will provide the full support and service levels for these products that our consumers have grown to depend on.”
“Feetures! has been an integral part of our business growth in the running and sports markets in the USA. Our partnership has served the market and both companies well,” said Dave Higgins, CEO of ING Source. “With the continuous development of our technology and expansion of our product range, the timing for this transition is perfect for all.”
The Plantar Fasciitis products that ING Source manufactures and markets will be exactly the same as the Feetures! Plantar Fasciitis Sleeve and Plantar + Calf Sleeve. The products will be sold in different packaging and the new OS1st brand name. The OS1st products are now sold in more than 10 other countries worldwide.
