A short delay, but we're getting there...
Thanks for bearing with us in recent weeks.
Here's a little update from the sneakerface, in Porto, where we're getting ready to enter the final stages of production.
As you might have suspected, we're a little bit behind schedule - sorry about that. We had originally hoped to ship most of the sneakers by the end of November, but those hopes appear to have been dashed by a combo of delays in leather and sole production. We do expect to have some pairs finished by the month's end, although they unfortunately won't be ready to ship until early December. And December shipping is a tad more difficult to predict, so we're not yet able to put a definitive timeline on final shipping. All in all, we reckon we're facing the 3 or 4 week delay we anticipated might happen, when we wrote our "Risks & Rewards" section below. Maybe we can make up some of that time, although we definitely don't want to rush the assembly and finishing phase, as this is where it's most critical to have time and patience.
We look forward to giving you a more precise update on shipping dates once production nears its close. In the mean time, if you need to change your shipping address, we believe it's still possible to do that by logging into your Kickstarter profile and editing the information you gave us. But we also welcome you to email us any changes in address: firstname.lastname@example.org. And if you're unsure where you'll be when we're ready to ship, don't worry... we'll give you notice again in 2 or 3 weeks, before we make the list of shipping addresses final.
To end on a positive note, the actual making of the sneakers has been going very well indeed and we think this might be the best batch of shoes/sneakers we've ever produced! Hopefully you guys will feel the same way once you get them.
More news soon!
