For the very first time, Pretty Polly incorporates Odegon's patented odour removing technology within its hosiery.
Keeping feet fresh can be a challenge... from everyday usage of your favourite pair of shoes, to the common problems associated with being on your feet all day; foot odour is a situation everyone will be familiar with.
In a bid to tackle this, Pretty Polly is proud to introduce Sweet Steps – a uniquely innovative hosiery range guaranteed to significantly reduce unpleasant smells, designed especially to keep feet feeling fresher for longer.
Using a patented technology never before applied to hosiery, Sweet Steps features a lightweight heart-shaped odour control patch, cleverly fused to the sole of the foot. The patch works to destroy odour, using micro-porous technology to target and capture smelly sweat molecules, trapping them before neutralising them, leaving nothing but fresh air.
Developed exclusively by Odegon Technologies Ltd for Pretty Polly, the discrete Sweet Steps patch incorporates carbon-based materials to remove and neutralise smells.
Thanks to their cute heart shape, the patches (which are suitable for sensitive skin) are as attractive as they are effective.
David Donnelly, Managing Director of Pretty Polly, Courtaulds Brands Ltd. said: "We know that women lead increasingly busy lives and are on the go all day, often in shoes made from synthetic fabrics – an ideal environment for unpleasant smells to penetrate. Sweet Steps is the perfect solution to this, giving women a comfortable and simple solution to what can be an embarrassing issue.
We are constantly looking to bring new and exciting innovative products to the hosiery market and Sweet Steps offers an unrivalled solution to the common problem of foot odour."
Director at Odegon Technologies, Tom Rawlings said: "As leaders in odour absorbing products, we believe our patented technology will bring a new dimension to the hosiery market. Our partnership with Pretty Polly, is a huge step forward in tackling common problems associated with foot odour. Consumers benefit from a technologically advanced fabric which is chemical free, does not wash out, lasts as long as the garment and contains no harmful anti-microbial additives."
Pretty Polly's Sweet Steps range will hit shops in September 2015 for further details; full stockists and pricing please visit www.prettypolly.co.uk.
