M.J. Markell to sell Quikiks Hands-Free shoes

New York, NY-based Quikiks Hands-Free Shoes in February signed its first US distribution agreement within the O&P industry with M.J. Markell Shoe Company.

M.J. Markell, headquartered in Yonkers, NY, will distribute Quikiks shoes, which feature hands-free technology called Step-in-Go that allows wearers to step easily into and fasten their shoes without bending or using their hands.
