Get Ready for Fashion Week


Just because you're getting old and using a walker doesn't mean you have to give up having style.

What I really want to know is, does this woman have tennis balls in colors to match every outfit? Or does she wear pink most of the time? And does she have a pantsuit that matches the standard sickly green tennis balls?
And the most important question: Who was the first person to put tennis balls on the legs of a walker?

  1. The very first person to put tennis balls on the legs of her walker was the late Olive McMartin from Scranton, Pennsylvania. She tried to patent them after a successful record-breaking sale at the annual Christmas bizarre in 1979. She died before the US Patent and Trademark Office cleared the patent, and the craze simultaneously caught on like wildfire.
