CHI Footwear, The Ultimate Shoe for Hairstylists, Debuts at America’s Beauty Show

HOUSTON, Sept. 23, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Created by Farouk Systems, Inc., CHI Footwear debuted at one of the top salon industry events in the country – America’s Beauty Show. CHI Footwear introduced its graphene sneaker collection to attendees, connecting the brand to thousands of beauty professionals.

As a profession that requires stylists to stand on their feet all day, it is important for hairdressers to wear shoes that provide all-day support, breathable comfort, and durability. As a hairdresser himself, Dr. Farouk Shami, Founder and Chairman of Farouk Systems, Inc., collaborated with designer Joan Orozco to create CHI Footwear.

Developed as a brand centered on technology, comfort, and style, CHI Footwear is a podiatrist-approved collection that focuses on foot health and how this impacts our overall well-being. In fact, a first line of defense to preventing foot conditions is through the material in the shoes worn daily. Through intensive research, testing and a variety of prototypes, CHI Footwear developed a next-generation sneaker that protects from a host of foot problems including bacteria, poor circulation, sweat, odor and foot fatigue – all thanks to its graphene technology, which is stronger, more flexible, and harder wearing than other sneakers. Considered to be the strongest material in the world, graphene is a razor-thin honeycomb sheet of carbon atoms that is 200 times stronger than steel, but extremely lightweight.

In particular, CHI Footwear’s graphene sneakers and inserts help:

  • Kill germs by breaking down the cellular walls of bacteria, fungus, yeast, and other types of viruses
  • Prevent odors
  • Provide relief for plantar fasciitis (one of the most common causes of foot pain)
  • Provide stability and balance
  • Regulate body temperature for optimal comfort and support
  • Reduce muscle fatigue
  • Encourage you to stand and walk properly which may correct posture over time
  • Provide a heathy option for diabetic footwear
  • Massage the foot while walking, providing energy and good circulation while fighting fatigue
  • Reduce inflammation and combat other symptoms caused by poor blood circulation

Available in women’s and men’s sizes, this 15-piece sneaker collection implements this technology to ensure no one needs to compromise on comfort or style. The CHI Footwear graphene collection comes in a variety of attractive color combinations with many of the designs inspired by the Eye of Horus, an ancient Egyptian symbol of protection, good health, and energy.

Price: $269 each from or ( is connected to rewardStyle, Skimlinks and Viglink)

Style, Comfort, and Technology all in one.
