Charlotte, NC – June 17th, 2015 – Effective July 1, 2015, Feetures!, a leader in the performance sock category, will transfer distribution of their Plantar Fasciitis Sleeve and Plantar + Calf Sleeve to the products’ manufacturers, ING Source Inc.

Like Feetures!, ING Source is a North Carolina based, family owned business, with a main focus on supporting specialty retailers, professional trainers, and medical providers. ING Source has been selling their innovative compression, orthopedic, and rehabilitation products to the medical and other specialty markets since 2012.
“It has been a pleasure working with ING Source to introduce their innovative Plantar Fasciitis Sleeve and Plantar + Calf Sleeve to the run specialty industry,” says Feetures! President, Hugh Gaither. “We are confident that they will provide the full support and service levels for these products that our consumers have grown to depend on.”
“Feetures! has been an integral part of our business growth in the running and sports markets in the USA. Our partnership has served the market and both companies well,” says Dave Higgins, CEO of ING Source. “With the continuous development of our technology and expansion of our product range, the timing for this transition is perfect for all.”
The Plantar Fasciitis products that ING Source manufactures and markets will be exactly the same as the Feetures! Plantar Fasciitis Sleeve and Plantar + Calf Sleeve.
