Hi, I'm Tiffany!
A few years ago, I got horrible blisters on the back of my heels when trying to break in a pair of Doc Martens. It felt like a knife was digging into my achilles heel. I would always get blisters and bloody heels after wearing them, even with thick socks.
I looked online for different ways to break them in, but many of the ways just seemed silly to me. Some suggestions were wearing 3 socks, and one even as ridiculous as hopping in the shower in the Doc Martens, then walking around the house in these wet, sticky leather boots!
Unsatisfied with all the solutions out there, I decided to make my own sock that had padding in the back, thick enough to prevent against any pair of shoes.
I took a sewing class at a local junior college, Orange Coast College, where I successfully made my own ultra padded sock. From then on, I never got a blister again. It was so easy too! All I had to do is put on a sock. I knew that there were other people out there suffering how I had. So, I knew that I had to make more, start a business and sell them to people who had the same problem.
However, I had no clue how to start a business. From then on, I attended every business and networking event I could, immersed myself with books, YouTube videos and surrounded myself with business-minded people. Having a new startup straight out of college, there is still a lot to learn, but I’m excited on the new entrepreneurial journey I’m on and I hope to end the pain of uncomfortable shoes once and for all, one sock at a time.
Say goodbye to bloody heels and get your pair today!
