Does this problem come in old age?

In India 2 out of 5 people are flat-footed India. This problem does not depend on age as due to many lifestyle changes this can arise in the twenties too. Ladies suffer more problems than men.

What is special in their shoes?

They are having changeable soles which are very good for hygiene purposes. You can wash their soles.

What is Flat Feet Deformity?

Flat feet deformity is genetic and in normal people, as their posture is not correct so their arch drops and it becomes flat feet at a certain age. The loss lies here as our arch acts as a shock absorber and if it will not work so pressure from the ground is will directly go to the heel which will affect your knees and result in pain in the lower back.

Why major brands like Bata and Adidas are not working on this?

CMM earlier was working on lifestyle wear and when they used to display their products in the exhibition. There every second lady use to ask that there is a pain in her foot and demanded Doctor Chappals. There are many pains faced by women during pregnancy and they also met 15-20 Top gynecologists who got impressed by the product.

What are their sales for 1 Year?

The sales of the present year are Rs8 Lakhs.

What is the sales split of CMM?

They have made most of the sales in the B2C Model.

Who are the prior investors?

There is only one angel investor who is a doctor and holds 1% Equity in the company by investing Rs4 Lakhs.

Will their product work for Women Heels footwear?

They are going to launch that product soon as heels have a high market cap and will solve the problem.
