Surrey senior’s Dragons pitch to air Feb. 7

Norm Bradley pitched his orthotic-friendly sandals last spring

A South Surrey man who set foot in the Dragon’s Den last year with a quest that was all about feet is getting set to see for himself how the whole thing unfolded – although he already knows the ending.

“I did make a deal,” Norm Bradley told Peace Arch News Wednesday, of his experience in the studio with Dragons including Vincenzo Guzzo, Manjit Minhas and Jim Treliving.

“I will be appearing on Feb. 7 with my episode.”

Bradley pitched his patented Cabo Comfort sandals to the Dragons in April. He developed the footwear – which has a velcro-sealed pocket in the sole specifically for personal orthotics – after discovering a gap in the market while vacationing in Mexico.

Following the filming last spring, he described the experience as a “once-in-a-lifetime.”

Wednesday, he said he believes the exposure alone is “going to be fairly good for me.”

The Feb. 7 airing is just a week after the episode scheduled to include the pitch of another South Surrey resident.

Jennifer Pratt told PAN last month that she was selected to appear on the Jan. 31 episode with her efforts to lure the Dragons’ interest in her Seeding Square product.
