What’s your story?

Fly Kytin was born from a passion to create a better footwear solution. Foot pain can have a profound impact on quality of life. Over 77% of Americans have experienced foot pain, and many have limited activity due to foot pain. Most people would benefit from minimal support, but are limited to wearing orthotics in shoes or bulky sandals for arch support. Designer Tony Hendrix set out to make this technology as minimal as possible. Our team was Impacted by seeing so much waste and little accountability in the footwear industry. We knew our solution would be sustainable from the beginning.

 

What’s your “why”?

We want to promote living active and healthy lifestyles. The large corporations did not care about sustainability or what happened to footwear at product end-of-life cycle. We saw so much waste from the inside, and realized there was an opportunity to make a difference. We are disrupting the sock and insole markets by developing the first ever 3D recovery sock that combines the comfort and breathability of a compression sock, with the arch support of an insole to relieve tired achy feet. They are made from quality recyclable and regenerative materials.

 

What’s your flagship product?

Parasole is our flagship 3D recovery sock designed to fit into many different lifestyles. Our hybrid footwear combines the compression and breathability of an athletic sock with key properties of an orthotic insole. These advanced recovery socks are engineered with a polymer sole providing dynamic arch support, improved pressure distribution and micro-cushioning. Our customers are working professionals, athletes, medical recovery patients, and people with active healthy lifestyles.

Who’s your ideal customer?

Our recovery footwear is for anyone wanting to relieve foot fatigue so they can be at their best. From working professionals that want to be comfortable at the office or working from home, to pro-athletes recovering after an intense training session; Parasole is perfect for experiencing lightweight supportive comfort anywhere you go. They will be your new favorite travel companion. Zip through airport security and enjoy enhanced circulation from our 2 layer compression. Parasole is designed to fit your lifestyle.

 

Why does sustainability matter?

If you spend time in footwear you quickly notice how unsustainable and wasteful the industry is. Over 20 billion pairs of shoes are made each year, and 300 million pairs are thrown away into U.S. landfills alone.

We are committed to being a part of the solution to the footwear industry’s waste by reducing our footprint and using sustainable materials and responsible manufacturing. Parasole’s are made from just 3 primary materials, compared to a pair of shoes which may contain up to 30 different components. Our production process reduces shoe waste by over 90%.

 

Do you contribute to your local community?

FlyKytin is committed to making a positive impact on our community and the planet. We donate a percentage of sales to environmental nonprofits and social causes. Through our giving partner 1% For the Planet, we are helping to eradicate poverty by teaming up with The Kula Project.
