Hatfield Strap
Owner & President

Keith Hatfield developed the Hatfield Strap out of necessity. Keith has long suffered from plantar fasciitis and had purchased many devices to stretch the foot and calf and felt continually disappointed with the results he was getting.

After conducting research, Keith was inspired to create his own device after personally experiencing a gap in the market. He ordered the material and cut and sewed it together, and the first time he put it on he experienced the stretch he was after all along.
