The Foundation of Rapido
Rapido was founded by STEM Academy juniors, Sam Walls and Ryder Kulp in February 2022. After playing soccer together for more than a decade, Ryder and Sam were tired of blisters and paying top dollar for over-priced, thin socks. These high school juniors decided to take matters into their own hands - they designed and manufactured a simple - but quality solution. Exceptional grip socks that protect athletes' feet - and their wallets!
Sam and Ryder were kindergarten classmates who started playing soccer at 4 years old. 13 years later they tackled the ever-present athletic sock issue: thin & over-priced socks that do nothing but create relentless blisters. When not working on their new thriving business, they enjoy working out, fishing, playing spikeball, and investing. Sam resides in Glenmoore, PA with his family. Ryder resides in Downingtown, PA with his family.
