Walk Me Wear™ LLC, a New York start-up company manufacturing American-made enhanced visibility baseball caps for people who walk their dogs, is vying for a top spot at the internationally acclaimed ISPO BRAND NEW sporting goods competition.

The ISPO BRAND NEW competition has been a barometer for future trends in the sporting goods arena for more than a decade. ISPO 2011 will be no different. Hundreds of entrepreneurial companies from around the globe have entered the competition. A panel of international experts from the sporting goods industry, marketing, and sports press will announce the finalists in early December. Meanwhile, the public is invited to support their favorite Brand New product by clicking on the “Hot list” on the competition’s website.

The Walk Me Wear™ charcoal-grey cap is sure to be a favorite with pet owners, outdoor enthusiasts, and the ISPO jury. It features the distinctive Walk Me Wear™ logo and the coveted 3M® Scotchlite™ 360° visibility tag that ensures enhanced visibility at dawn, dusk, or at night in all weather conditions.

Johanna Miklós, company owner, began designing fashionable reflective accessories and clothing after she and JoJo, a hound-collie mix she rescued four years ago, narrowly escaped being hit by a car on one of their nighttime walks. “The driver just couldn’t see us.”

In addition to keeping people safe, Ms. Miklós hopes her cap will inspire people to get out with their pet and stay fit. “Walking is the best exercise, for dogs and for people. JoJo and I walk at least three miles a day.”

Walk Me Wear™ reflective caps keep you safe, get people and pets moving and are Made in USA.

The American public can support Walk Me Wear’s bid for a top hot spot at ISPO by voting until November 25th.
