PITTSBURGH, July 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Because of the intensity of the game, it's not uncommon for basketball players to step on each other's toes, sometimes with serious consequences. Because of the creative thinking of an inventor from Euclid, Ohio, however, players no longer need to worry about such injuries.
He developed the patent-pending STEEL TOE BASKETBALL SHOES specifically to provide protection for toes, especially during close contact sports like basketball. As such, it prevents toe and toe nail injuries caused by being stepped on. Thus, it saves the time, effort and expense of medical treatment. At the same time, it is constructed to withstand wear and tear and will not compromise or interfere with normal activities. It is also convenient, practical and affordably priced. In addition, its simple design minimizes production costs.
The inventor's experience on the court inspired the idea. "While playing basketball, there have been several instances when another player stepped on my toe, causing blood clots and toenail injuries that took a while to heal, " he said. "This invention would make this sport safer for amateur and veteran players alike."
The original design was submitted to the Cleveland sales office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
