Two high school students, along with their teacher are planning to change the world, to improve the everyday life of women. All that thanks to a revolutionary electro-stimulant shoe sock.
How did it all start, what’s the story behind Cloud Walkers?
It all started in 2015, when we decided to join the national competition The company of the year 2016 powered by JA with this business idea. Being in contact with specialists from IT and healthcare industry, we were able to build an electro-stimulant shoe sock, which reduces the discomfort caused by the footwear, which was approved by Valentina Agap, quality manager at Otter Distribution and Bogdan Popa, Mercantor Analyst. We received The Best Business Plan from Citi Bank.

What is your motivation? What gets you from thinking to DOING?
Have you noticed that nowadays,the whole world and everything in it is speeding up, and people need to adapt fast to every change? 9 out of 10 women feel discomfort and pain when using high heels. On the other hand, walking is good for one’s health. We want to solve a problem that women have to face in their daily life and revolutionize the market.
How do you plan to IMPACT the world?
Our goal is to bring innovation on the medical market and streamline the everyday life of women. We strongly believe that Cloud Walkers will bring a new type of comfort while walking and in the new future, the electro-stimulant shoe sock will bring a new step forward in the progress of society.
