Aetrex Worldwide, Inc.: Committed to Foot Health for Three Generations
Founded in 1946, Aetrex is one of the fastest growing companies in the footwear industry and is widely recognized as the global leader in comfort and wellness footwear products. The Aetrex mission is to create the healthiest shoes on the market today. With fashion, function and quality at the forefront, Aetrex designs and manufactures casual, dress, sandal, athletic and therapeutic footwear for both men and women. All styles are crafted with care to meet the highest standards in design, incorporate cutting edge technologies and offer unmatched customization and adjustability.
Originally known for the landmark development of arch supports and medically-oriented footcare products, Aetrex has come a long way to become one of the leading footwear companies in the US and around the world. Today, Aetrex is proud to offer fashion forward styles with innovative features designed to help you feel great on your feet and promote a healthy and active lifestyle.
Aetrex is also renowned for its over-the-counter Lynco Orthotics that are recognized as the #1 orthotic system on the market today. Recommended by doctors and pedorthists worldwide, Lynco Orthotics offer unsurpassed comfort, support and proper body alignment. Available in a variety of styles, they provide you with a custom selected solution designed specifically for your foot type and footwear style.
Although footwear and orthotics are a major focus for Aetrex, the company has also pioneered an industry-altering digital foot scanner, the iStep. This patented foot scanning technology is designed to accurately measure foot size, arch type and pressure points in a matter of seconds. The technology immediately custom selects the ideal footwear and orthotics for your feet. Launched in 2002, iStep is the leading digital foot analysis system, and is offered as a free service to consumers at thousands of locations throughout the world.
Aetrex also owns and maintains the world’s most popular foot health website – Foot.com, which hosts more than 100,000 visitors per month and was named by Yahoo! as the best health care site "below the knee."
Aetrex has just completed its 15th consecutive year of double-digit growth and is now on the cusp of launching some major consumer initiatives, including the opening of its flagship store in Englewood NJ. The company employs over 200 people at its New Jersey headquarters, including fitness experts, top footwear designers, podiatrists and over 20 Certified Pedorthists. The New Jersey-based corporation was recently named one of New Jersey’s Top 100 Privately Held Companies for 2010. It has remained privately owned by the Schwartz family for three generations.
