Archived: Finally! No more slipping around swimming pools!

iCrowdNewswire - Jun 24, 2015

Children do not think about safety, they just want to have fun. But we adults worry, so to make sure that children enjoy wearing the safety non-slip socks, we have designed all sorts of fun designs for them. Ockyz launched a campaign on the crowdfunding platform Kickstarter for special non-slip swimming socks for children, called Sweakers. The Sweakers are lightweight and comfortable to wear. With their open toes, children can swim naturally in them and play around the pool freely and safely.

Apart from children, the elderly care sector has shown great interest in the non-slip socks. After launching the Sweakers for children, Ockyz will quickly start designing models for other groups.

Robin Van Persie, captain of the Dutch national football team and Julia Meuller, captain of the German national hockey team, made known on social media that they are already fans of Ockyz.

By the grace of God alone do any of us survive into adulthood. All the forces of the modern age seem bent upon destroying us while young: A busy street running down the center of a neighborhood, power lines in prime kite-flying space, hard candy… and swimming pools. Drowning is top of everyone’s mind, so we’re vigilant, but you know what could happen even while fifty pairs of eyes looked on? A cracked skull against the slippery tile surrounding the pool.

At public pools, it’s like a merry go round. Who’s going to be the next to go down? My bet’s on the little guy in swim trunks and curls. Ah, never mind. He’s wearing Sweakers.

Sweakers are slip-proof swim socks. They’re cute, washable, quick drying, like a swimsuit, durable. They won’t stink to high heaven – they’re hygienic. They won’t embarrass you – they’re stylish. They won’t fail you – they’re hardy.

Where else would it be advisable to keep a slip-proof barrier between yourself and the floor? They’d be useful in the bathtub, too, wouldn’t they? And the shower. And for more than just kids. The elderly – a notoriously stylish bunch – could certainly benefit from a cute open-toed solution to cracked skulls and elbows, even if it’s just getting in and out of the shower.

Sweakers come in a host of men’s, women’s, teen’s, and kid’s sizes. The design is meant to suggest a shoe, with the sporty versions resembling sneakers, and a girly style called Pink Pump.

Now we can turn our attention to window blind cords, open paint buckets, and other childhood scourges. The pool side is taken care of.
