Tread Labs, a leading performance insole brand established by Chaco founder Mark Paigen, today announced it expanded its sales team and doubled the size of its headquarters to accommodate the rapid growth created by wholesale demand for their insole collection.

Tread Labs was founded in 2015 by Mark Paigen, who previously founded (and later sold) Chaco sandals. Tread Labs was created to improve people’s lives by giving feet the support they desperately need. Tread Labs’ proprietary two-part insole system is designed for the long haul. The molded arch supports are guaranteed forever, and the top covers are easily replaced to make insoles like new again, without having to buy a whole new pair. Better for the wallet, better for the planet. Sandals are debuting in 2023 and closed footwear is in development.
