Implus Footcare acquired Sneaker Balls, a patented shoe deodorizing product. “The Sneaker Balls acquisition further complements our commitment as a leader in the footwear accessory market,” said Todd Vore, Implus President. “We are excited to add Sneaker Balls to the Implus portfolio of market leading brands.”

“Sneaker Balls are a niche product that complements the very successful Sof Sole ‘One-Stop Shop’ footwear accessory program,” said Vore. “Sneaker Balls will provide our retail partners a tremendous opportunity to further grow sales and profits, while leveraging Implus’ logistic services.”

This is Implus’ second major acquisition in the past 14 months. In May 2006, Implus acquired Yaktrax, the market leading snow and ice traction device. “Acquisitions are part of our growth strategy,” said Vore. “We are constantly looking for new products and programs to provide better ROI for our retail partners.”
