Empowering best in-class footwear brands to create handsfree footwear

HandsFree Labs traces its roots back to when innovative Ogio International founder Mike Pratt – based on his experience with technology and materials – saw the need for a solution for putting on and removing shoes without the need to use hands. From that vision, Mike began to build the F.A.S.T. collection. From there, HandsFree Labs was created, and the company is actively inventing handsfree technologies for a broad range of uses.
