Risks and challenges

Over the last year and a half, we have worked tirelessly to ensure that both our product and supply chain are top-of-the-line, giving us the confidence to commit to our December ship date. However, as with any startup, there are always potential bumps in the road. We've brainstormed possible areas for setbacks in our plan and have come up with solutions and estimates for how long those setbacks would impede us. We know our product will get to your feet, but here are the scenarios that could make it take a little longer than expected:

1. The Most Rock Solid Shoe You've Ever Had

Currently, our shoes are undergoing rigorous biomechanical testing at renowned footwear testing firm Heeluxe. We are fully anticipating that this testing will find our shoes to be rock-solid. However, should a suggestion for technology improvement arise, we will take the time to implement those recommendations for your security and safety. Likely adjustments would be quick but, if new molds need to be opened, it may set us back by 30-60 days.

2. Getting Heels from A to B

As a new footwear company with a new footwear product, this is the first time convertible heels have been shipped between countries (or at all, for that matter). Although we have experts on our team who have experience shipping footwear product, our shoe is so different that we foresee potential holdups at the border when undergoing review by US Customs. They may have a hard time classifying our product for tax purposes. Should this occur, we don't anticipate longer than a 14-day setback.

3. Making Shoe Sizing the Truest of True

Going along with the point above, we'd like to emphasize that convertible heels have never been made before—meaning this is our factory's first time having to grade separate parts of a shoe to match an appropriate sizing scale. That being said, our factory does have years of experience grading shoe parts to be integrated into one shoe piece and our process is not exponentially different. However, we do acknowledge that as with any new process, the first go at it may not be picture perfect and we do not want to ship product that isn't true to size or that contains parts that aren't a match for their listed size. Should grading issues be found, depending on the severity, this could set us back between 30 and 60 days.

Should any of these issues arise, we will be sure to give our backers ample notice and alert them to the steps being taken to solve the problem at hand. All that said, we are confident that our Pashions will get to your feet with little to no setbacks along the way.
