    A Colorado couple has designed and patented a pseudo-sock like foot cover (the “skindel”) that’s meant to be worn as you walk through the x-ray machine at the airport. I’m very confused at this product, to be frank: It appears to be an adhesive backing that sticks to your foot, and you apply it prior ... [Continue reading]

    Just to clarify on the purpose of Skindels, they are for those people who do not have the luxury of Pre Check. Last time I was in the airport I’m pretty sure people were still using the normal security line. My business partner also travels for a living and can concur that every airport in the nation still has more people going through the standard security line, where one is required to remove their shoes, than the Pre Check line. As for the price, they will be about $6 for a pack of two pairs. Also, have you ever seen someone wearing socks with flip flops or high heels? I don’t think so. Skindels are designed to be discreetly worn with any sockless footwear so that the traveler may wear their desired footwear without having to walk barefoot across the security line floor.

    Skindels are specifically designed to be discreetly worn with any footwear, allowing the traveler to even wear their flip flops, high heels and sockless footwear without having to touch the security line floor with their bare feet. In addition to travel purposes, Skindels are perfect for keeping your feet clean in numerous other environments such as gym locker rooms and showers, yoga and dance studios, kids’ play places and anywhere you go barefoot or wear sockless footwear.

    Over 933 Million people are projected to fly within US during 2016. I’d hardly say it’s a niche market. I agree that frequent male business travelers would not need Skindels during their work trips because they usually wear dress shoes. However, the majority of females traveling wear heels or other sockless footwear in addition to non-frequent traveling males and children who also wear sockless footwear while traveling. Not everyone wears shoes with socks. Skindels will help give those people a sense of security as well as clean feet. They can stay on for up to 24 hours or more depending on the activity, which means you can wear them through security, to your destination and still have them on when you get to your hotel so you do not have to walk around your hotel room barefoot.
