Many practitioners are not aware of the generous footwear discounts available to podiatrists. The American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) provides a link on its website for footwear discount programs from the following manufacturers. In order to get these discounts, you must be an APMA member.
Asics America Corporation – 40 percent discount
Dansko, LLC – 30 percent discount
Ecco USA – 40 percent discount
Injinji Footwear, Inc – 40 percent discount
Vionic Group, LLC – 50 percent discount on orders of $200
Sole – 50 percent discount
Non-APMA member discounts include:
Brooks Running – 40 percent discount
Most local running shoe stores, retail shoe stores and shoe repair stores also offer discounts to podiatrists, their staff and patients. This is a great way to receive discounts as well as establish a cross referral system for your patients and their customers.
If you know of any other professional discount programs not listed above, let me know and I will add to the list.
