Two former Spenco executives, Jeff Antoniloi and Brad Granger, have purchased the footwear assets of the company to offer the full line of Spenco Footwear through the new entity, Waco Shoe Company. Antoniloi and Granger established the Waco Shoe Company under which the Spenco Footwear brand is now sold.
“While working for Spenco Medical Corporation, I helped launch the first sandal in 2010 and watched the brand grow into a full line of sandals, shoes and slippers,” said Antonioli, co-owner of Waco Shoe Company. “I knew that when the company was being sold, I had to keep the popular footwear line alive and growing.”
Each pair of Spenco shoes will include the patented Spenco insole with its full-contact support, deep-heel cupping, orthotic arch support, metatarsal dome and cushioned forefoot.
“In orthotic footwear, Spenco is truly unrivaled. It’s the only product suitable for all foot types, providing the unique combination of total contact support and cushioning,” said podiatrist Nicholas Pagano of Barking Dogs Foot and Ankle Care in Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania. “This level of support and the health benefits that Spenco Footwear provides is similar to a custom-grade, medical orthotic.”
Waco Shoe Company, which got its name from its headquarters and hometown where Spenco Medical Corporation thrived for decades, plan to build on the company’s history and legacy in orthotic insoles. “Spenco Footwear is an integral part of our company, which focuses on foot health, comfort, fit and style,” said Granger. “Waco Shoe Company has also added the Revitalign, Ironsport and Ironman brands to round out our portfolio.”
