–Wiivv Introduces Special Edition Insole to Celebrate
American Hiking Society’s National Trails Day®—
(San Diego, CA) June 1, 2018–To mark the 50th anniversary of the US National Trails System Act of 1968, Wiivv is launching a limited edition style of its custom-fit 3D printed insole just before American Hiking Society’s National Trails Day® on June 2. A portion of the sale of each insole will be donated to the American Hiking Society, which works to protect the places people love to hike.
“Wiivv exists to help people move and live their best, in any and every walk of life,” said co-founder and CEO Shamil Hargovan in announcing the special edition product. “Only with this insole can you transform your favorite hiking boots or shoes with custom-fit comfort while giving back to the public trails and lands that we hold dear.”
On American Hiking Society’s National Trails Day® on June 2 in honor of the 50th anniversary of the National Trails System, the American Hiking Society is encouraging hikers and outdoor enthusiasts to help care for 2,802 miles of trails. The 2,802 miles represent the distance across the US. Participants can contribute time and effort by picking up trash, joining a trail work project or cleaning up a nearby park.
“We are excited to be partnering with Wiivv to not only make those hikes a lot more comfortable but also to create opportunities for hikers to give back to the trails and parks that they love by pledging to leave the trail better than they found it on American Hiking Society’s National Trails Day®,” said Kate Van Waes, the Executive Director of the American Hiking Society.
Special Edition insoles are full length, available here for $99.
