After 15 foot surgeries in the past few years, Vovkivinskiy was in a desperate need of custom-made shoes. Reebok told him it would cost $15,000 to make him a pair that would fit. Before the surgeries, Vovkivinskiy wore a size 26.
Twin Cities-based Palidium, Inc. was also making shoes for Vovkivinskiy.
