Early October CNBC interviews Solemates and had this to say about their upcoming nationwide product launch with CVS:
Two former Goldman Sachs employees are taking their shoe business to the masses. Becca Brown and Monica Ferguson developed the concept for "Solemates" while pursuing their master's degrees at Colombia Business School.
Soon after, they quit their jobs at Goldman and turned the concept into a reality. Their main product is a "heel protector" designed to stop high heels from sinking into the grass. Now, their signature product is set to launch in 4,000 CVS stores across the country.
Their heel protectors are already sold at DSW, David's Bridal, Amazon.com and on Solemates' website.
