If you wear ankle or foot braces, chances are you have a nice collection of black or white orthotic socks that fit over each brace. Give these up: Susan Kleiman wants to change your wardrobe. Kleiman, president of Ross Daniel Adaptive Apparel, today launched “Cool Clothes for Toes,” a line of fashion socks for those with special needs.
In the US, there are more than 20 million children and teens with special needs, and few fashion alternatives for those who need them. According to Kleiman, this product holds a special place for her, because it was her teenage son, Ross that gave rise to the inspiration. “Ross is a 16 year old with special needs, and in my struggle to find him a sock that was comfortable, breathable and fashionable for a teenager … I decided to form a company to help give people with physical challenges fashion and dignity,” she says.
Cool Clothes for Toes are currently available at rdadaptiveapparel.com and retail starting at $12.95.
