Max Yurva

Season 13 of “Shark Tank” saw entrepreneurs Kaycee Jones and Brianne Zborowski unveil their product line, Apollo, in hopes of securing a sizable investment from the Sharks. Apollo is a line of compression socks aimed primarily at professional dancers and athletes as they help provide greater traction than normal types. Such a unique product has piqued the curiosity of many who may be looking for more details about the company and its development after Shark Tank. Here’s everything you need to know about Apollo!

Apollo: Who are they and what do they do?

Kaycee Jones and Brianne Zborowski’s extensive experience in dance has contributed greatly to Apollo’s success. Brianne holds a Bachelor of Commerce, Management, Marketing and Related Support Services from the University of Auckland before entering a career as a Sales Consultant. However, since dancing was her first love, Brianne soon became a competition co-director and instructor at Releve Studios in California. During this time, she even worked as an accounting manager and food safety coordinator at Eureka Specialties.

After taking on the job of Operations Manager at Dana Dance Studio, Brianne decided to turn her attention entirely to dance. Today, Brianne is credited as the co-founder of a competing program for three dance studios in the United States. In addition to co-founding the MOVZ Dance Company, she is the co-host of the weekly dance podcast “Beyond The Steps.”

Kaycee Jones, on the other hand, discovered her love for dance early on as her mother was a popular dance instructor. So the native from American Falls, Idaho, decided to follow her passion and pursue a bachelor’s degree in physical education, exercise science and dance at Idaho State University. At the same time, she continues to achieve new milestones in the field of dance. Kaycee even worked as a guest talent stage manager at Disneyland while earning a Master of Science in Kinesiology and Exercise Science from California State University, Fullerton.

Over the years, Kaycee has perfected her skills as a dancer and is an excellent and successful trainer. She is also a registered yoga teacher and was previously an operations manager for the MBA program at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. While dancing brought Kaycee and Brianne together, they soon realized that performing in regular socks could be dangerous to health because they didn’t provide enough traction or compression. Shoes, on the other hand, make free play impossible, negating them from the equation. So with the Apollo sock idea in mind, Kaycee and Brianne spent two years testing and perfecting their prototype.

Additionally, the two looked into domestic manufacturing even before co-founding Apollo in 2016. All of Apollo’s socks provide better plantar traction as well as ankle stability and arch support. Plus, they even include a special type of energy-absorbing padding at the heel for added comfort. Additionally, the traction level of each sock can be customized by snapping them to the preferred point and using a separately sold adhesive to maintain the level. Plus, each sock provides best-in-class compression to aid circulation and reduce inflammation.

Where is Apollo now?

After the launch, Apollo’s founders were pleasantly surprised by the flood of positive reviews their product line received. Their popularity spread like wildfire, and by 2018, Apollo had ties to world-renowned organizations, including Sonya Tayeh’s dance symphony “You’ll Still Call My Name” and dance reality show “So You Think You Can Dance” . Kaycee and Brianne then saw an opportunity in the sportswear market and jumped into it immediately, increasing sales significantly.

Additionally, as a testament to its authenticity, Apollo has received the American Podiatric Association’s seal of approval, which recognizes products that make a significant contribution to foot care. Currently, Apollo socks are made entirely in the USA by REPREVE, a company known for exclusively using recycled fibers in their products. The socks are available on the company’s official website and on Amazon.

Apollo compression socks are available in several different varieties, ranging from $36 to $38 per pair. Plus, the company even sells a pair of rubber and fabric slides for $40, while the Traction Renewal Spray is just $9. Plus, you can even choose dance kits for extra discounts. Apollo has leapt to the top of the competition with little effort, and the company seems destined for even more success in the future.
