Dragan Has Delivered!
First, we want to thank everyone who has backed Project 1551 so far. It's been about a week and we know that we've got a ways to go. We also know that buying men's dress shoes without trying them on or holding them in your hands requires a bit of faith, but rest assure we are building the highest quality shoes that you have ever seen.
BIG update! Dragan is back in town from NYC and was able to get me his sketches for the 1551 series. The only word to explain them is "Spectacular!" Shown on this page are the French Gray / All Leather heel and sole combination available to backers @ 230. Check out our main kickstarter page to see all other updates that we have made.
Thank you for all you support!
