HINSDALE – Hinsdale Central graduates and brother Justin and Christian Arquilla have reached their Kickstarter goal and will soon begin distributing their "sockless" invention, Gekks.

The Arquillas are the creative minds behind "Gekks Sockless Liners," an ultra-thin "sock" that is inserted into a loafer or slip-on shoe and remains in place with an adhesive gel until the liner is washed or swapped into another shoe.

Recently the brothers were looking to raise a goal of $75,000 with a Kickstarter campaign, and as of April 15, attained a total pledge of $96,920.

Gekks allow people to sport a sockless look without discomfort, and sweaty, foul smelling feet that arise when not wearing socks, according to the Arquillas.
