Panther Teeth is the result of founder and owner Brad Pelkofer’s wanting to improve the comfort, fit and performance of ice skates and athletic shoes based on his personal experiences playing hockey and using various types of athletic shoes, hiking boots and climbing shoes. The desire was to create a product that was light and strong, easily added to any type of footwear, and that could customize the fit of any off the shelf skates or athletic footwear.
Our company name is derived from the University of Pittsburgh mascot, the Panther, as the university was a key partner in the engineering and development of the company. Now with two patent pending products, Panther Teeth has developed a solution to help any end user improve the fit and performance of their skates and athletic footwear.
