Company Summary

WalkSock designs and manufactures socks that let you wear foot orthotics without shoes. At present the wearing of orthotics at home requires the wearing of shoes at all times. Our company helps solve some of the problems by introducing an orthotic support sock that accommodates the insole inside the sock itself.
