About Skins Inc.

Skins has created and is continuing to develop an innovative two-part, interchangeable footwear structure consisting of outer collapsible "Skins" and an inner orthopedic support section called the "Bone." The design allows consumers to purchase one inner section, the Bone, and numerous outer Skins, resulting in multiple style variations from the same pair of quality Bones, always with the same feel and fit no matter which Skin is being worn. Skins' objective is to create a new attire concept that allows and encourages consumers to frequently change their footwear, which would uniquely position the Skins concept between footwear and apparel.
