Comment

Big news on a few fronts. 

We reached our goal! Early this morning we crossed the $30,000 line with 11 days to go. I'm so excited to see the project reach a goal that seemed so far off just weeks back. I can't thank all my backers enough for believing in the project and being willing to support it. Grateful to you all. Pledging will continue over the next 11 days until July 23.

Partnership with Afew in Germany. I was approached a few weeks back by the owners of a great sneaker shop in Dusseldorf, Germany. They are in the midst of a complete overhaul of their space and are having a big grand opening on July 17th. We talked about some ways to make MAX100 a part. They are providing the project with promotion and exposure to new possible backers and are featuring 60 of the MAX100 pieces in an area of their store. I'm excited to be so prominent in such a great space and anticipate the exposure this brings to the project. Their new space is already popping up online and you can see more below. (Yes they have a glow in the dark floor)
