Five years ago, Daniel Lemire was a salesperson working the trade show floor. “One day, my feet were killing me,” he remembers. “I ran into someone who was selling insoles and tried them in my shoes, and I just loved them.”
That’s how Healthy Feet Solutions got its start. When he returned home, he started researching how he could make his own version and created his company.
With so many insoles on the market, what makes these different? The secret is in the liquid glycerin. While gel insoles offer padding, they’re static, not fluid. The material just stays in place. But Healthy Feet Solutions’ fluid technology is dynamic. It stimulates the blood flow and massages the feet, while absorbing the impact evenly. “They’re unlike anything else,” he says. “They just roll across the foot.”
The best way to understand the difference is to feel it. “Once people try them on, they just know,” he says. “They can’t believe the massage they get when they walk.” Also surprising is the thin profile of these insoles (just a couple of centimeters); many insoles are so thick that they can make women’s high heel shoes too tight.
Independent reps wanted
Lemire is looking for independent representatives to sell Healthy Feet massaging insoles across the country at swap meets, flea markets, conventions, shows, malls—any setting where there are large groups of people walking around. Through the company’s independent rep program, representatives start with an initial package that includes everything they need: tent, signage, table and chairs, and 500 pairs of insoles. There’s no franchise fee to become a rep. “People can make great money doing this,” he says. “As they sell, they just need to call and we ship them more.”
Healthy Feet Insoles come in various styles: original, men’s and women’s golfers, military, and even flip-flops. Retailers are asked to call for wholesale prices and quantities. Samples are available. The company also offers a warranty for two years; all customers need to do is register their purchase on the web site.
