Problem

Everyday millions of people in the US (and beyond) experience significant pain from muscle fatigue and cramping, joint pain that can lead to lower back pain, skeletal and tissue damage, blood clots, and even hairlines fractures that keep them from going to work and living their life to the fullest.

Current products either focus on corrective footwear, compression socks, or orthotics/inserts but no one has created a product that serves everyday professionals and serious athletes by providing additional padding that moves with the foot.

We are on a mission to solve pain for those who do some of the hardest and often uncelebrated work on the planet. That mission means addressing foot pain is just the start and gives us the opportunity to connect with them on a level of compassion and care, as well as empathy, our founder worked multiple retail jobs and suffered foot pain that drove him to create this product.

Target Customer

Three out of four Americans will experience foot and lower extremity related health issues at some point in their lifetime giving a larger customer base that includes those having acute pain for the first time to those who have ongoing chronic issues and those who seek to prevent those issues or avoid worsening conditions.

Service industries have expanded, particularly in warehouse and supply chain jobs, restaurant and hospitality, and people are working later into life (roughly 5 million 65+ year olds who are forced to work into their seventies) which means this problem is not going away, and will likely get worse.

Our target customer is someone who works hard and/or plays hard, wants to avoid issues from foot pain, and reduce the impact of current issues on their ability to feel good each day.

Specific marketing opportunities include the following key segments and analytics will be used to establish and tighten those segments and targeting accuracy.

Workers who stand or walk all day - There are roughly 40 million people working in industries that require them to be on their feet for at least 6 hours per day.

People with Chronic Foot Problems - Three-quarters of all Americans experience some kind of foot pain, according to the American Podiatric Medical Association.

Elderly - According to the US Census Bureau, there are more than 35 million persons aged 65 and over in the United States.

Active lifestyles - More than 55 million American men and women now exercise regularly with fitness equipment. Approximately 95.8 million walk for exercise, 52 million swim; 39.8 million ride bicycles; 38.5 million take part in aerobic workouts; 36.3 million work out at a health club or gym; and 35.5 million run or jog.

Outdoor Enthusiasts - According to the National Sporting Goods Association, there were approximately 44.7 million camping and hiking participants in 2010.

Competitive Landscape

Today, potential customers suffering from foot pain must use a combination of corrective footwear, inserts, and compression socks that are targeted in general lifestyle or are very targeted to sports and recovery.

While there are partial solutions, we believe that there is no direct competitor for those who are looking for an everyday workwear solution that can move between boots and shoes, form fit, while providing anti-fatigue support. The market gap is both a product and marketing standpoint. Foot Glove plans to fill this gap in the market with a unique message that can be tailored and targeted via digital analytics to provide a large overall market and inform continuous development for specialized segments to support unique needs.

Alternatives to the FootGlove product may include:

Over-The Counter Shoe Inserts: The available products from companies like Dr. Scholl’s are the most commonly known solutions to foot pain and discomfort; but they’re only available in certain sizes, lack durability, and are subpar in overall effectiveness.

Prescription Shoe Inserts: These custom-ordered products are much more reliable and of higher quality than their OTC counterparts. That being said, getting your hands on them can be a pain and expensive - and one type usually won’t fit a variety of your shoes.

Athletic Shoes: The big shoe companies possess the huge strength of brand recognition and marketing power. However, they do not provide a comprehensive integrated solution to the overall huge problem of foot pain and discomfort.

Compression Socks: These products are quite effective in providing relief to certain symptoms associated with foot/leg fatigue or discomfort - but they fail to provide impact cushioning or foot pressure point support therefore they also fall short in solving the foot pain problem.
