FREETOES toeless sock line was created by a dynamic young gal Katelyn Lohr out of Canada when she was 8 years old as she simply snipped off her toes on her socks and began to wear them with her flip flops creating her own style against her parents rules one Winter. She received interest early on as she stepped out in her toeless socks, seeing many were taking notice of her style – she quickly began selling and in one week she made $100.  She encouraged the support of her Oma (Grandma) to get more socks, cut them and sew the frayed ends – then selling 10,000 pairs soon after.  Katelyn developed awareness for FREETOES with her initial outreach at markets and fairs and eventually her story and product line was featured on the Canadian TV hit series Dragon’s Den for entrepreneurs. Now, 13 years old, with her Mom, Karina (Momma FREETOES) and a full team behind her booming business in Canada and being globally recognized – they are now bringing their bright idea to the USA.

Katelyn has also established her non-profit organization K8 which supports Project Aftershock and they have donated over 300 pairs of FREETOES to orphaned children from the Haiti Earthquake using their sock design to assist in wound dressings for feet, knees, elbows to help keep them secure and in place.
