Dr. Sylvie Shapiro and Nicole Brooks hope their product, Foot Fairy, an iPad App for measuring kids shoe sizes, measures up to the Sharks' standards when they introduce it in the season 5 finale. Shapiro is a podiatrist and Brooks is a licensed family therapist; the two friends share the stresses of balancing family with their respective professions and are always on the lookout for things that make parenting a bit easier.
They developed the Foot Fairy App to do just that. The App measures a child's foot size accurately, so there's no gueswork when buying shoes. Users can even order shoes from Zappos from inside the app. Dr. Shapiro is also the founder of DrShoeMom.com, a site that recommends kids shoes, and PlanetFlops.com, a site that sells eco-flip flops.
The pair is likely looking to the Sharks for help developing the Foot Fairy app.
Foot Fairy Shark Tank Recap
Dr. Sylvie and Nicole will pitch the panel of five Sharks on their business and its prospects for growth. They’ll need to convince Mark Cuban, Lori Grenier, Kevin O’Leary, Barbara Corcoran, and Robert Herjavec that the company is worthy of a Shark investment. A good business plan, good financials, and sales data will impress the Sharks, but they’ll need to show them THEY are capable of running the company to “Shark standards." A full pitch re-cap on Foot Fairy will be available on Shark Tank Blog once this episode airs.
