Co-founders Bri Zborowski and Kaycee Jones knew that Apolla Performance’s socks would have a major impact on the dance community, a world notorious for punishing training schedules and injuries that can start in youth dancers. And with their roots in dance, they felt comfortable launching their compression sock for the audience they knew so intimately.
But at the same time, their aspirations go way beyond dance studios; in fact, they’re not too shy to say that they want one million people wearing their socks by 2025. And yes, if you do the math, that means they’re more than ready to expand into fitness studios, homes, airplanes, and more—because Apolla is for everyone with feet.
On this episode of #WeGotGoals, Kaycee and Bri share their origin story, which begins on a family vacation to a small Florida beach town. Then, you’ll hear more about prevalence of injuries in dance and how Apolla Performance socks were created specifically to address these types of injuries. Bri and Kaycee also share the resources they’ve been building and how they’ve been educating their community using Instagram Live, plus what they’re doing to help support studios affected by the pandemic and the racial injustice movement in the United States. Finally, they share their big goals for the future: getting Apolla compression socks on the feet of one million people within four years, and continuing to do good for Apolla’s community.
