Kizik, a Utah-based footwear company and designer of easy-on-and-off shoes, announced it has made a donation to the Parkinson’s Foundation. Via the partnership, Kizik aims to help make Kizik shoes more available to those living with Parkinson’s disease.
“At Kizik, our mission is to make putting on and taking off shoes easier for everyone – and in particular for individuals who live with conditions that make tying shoes difficult or impossible. We are honored to partner with the Parkinson’s Foundation, and we believe this collaboration will enable us to make life easier for millions of people living with Parkinson’s disease.”
— Monte Deere, Chief Executive Officer of Kizik
For people with Parkinson’s disease, daily tasks can become more difficult to perform. Getting dressed may be a slower and more laborious process. Kizik’s shoes feature F.A.S.T. (Foot Activated Shoe Technology), designed to help people with Parkinson’s alleviate some of these daily challenges.
