The opportunity within foot care may be even more skewed toward the female shopper than in years past when insoles and devices designed with the woman in mind were first introduced.

Men are more utilitarian, preferring high-function products that offer extra-cushioning, support and comfort. Women, meanwhile, shop for products that complement not only their feet and their shoes, but also their busy lifestyles, according to Implus Footcare research.
