Take A FOOTbrake - when athletes need a brake in Action.
New Albany, Ohio. FOOTbrake introduces new foldable footwear for bikers.
Why FOOTbrake? Group of great friends spending time in Napa Valley, CA. After a bike ride into St. Helena, the group decided to enjoy the scenic lookouts, great food, and wine tastings. They didn't want to deal with the discomfort of walking in cleats, so they purchased some clunky foam slide shoes to explore the town. This beautiful day created a new business venture and FOOTbrake was born - a light weight fold up shoe that could fit in a biker's jersey pocket.
Why do we bike? Living in New Albany, the friendships and camaraderie sparked a passion to join in the fitness craze and give back to many charity causes.
FOOTbrake is a uniquely designed foldable footwear about the size of a mobile phone. For the serious biker out on weekend excursions, the clunky biker cleat is not built for time outs along the road. Now, bikers can park their bikes, shed their cleats and slip on the FOOTbrakes to give their feet a much needed "brake". And save the cleats from damage.
Marjie Hancock, owner, grew up in Chatham, NJ and now lives in New Albany, OH. She has held sales positions in NYC for Kodak and AT&T, as well as helped organize events for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. She is busy raising a 14-year-old son and 12-year-old daughter.
