This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Risks and challenges
As a part of the Kickstarter community, we will be completely open with our backers and will share with you any issues that might come up.
This is a low-risk Kickstarter campaign. The design, prototyping and tooling have already been done and the Aloha Feet insole samples look fabulous.
This is a physical product. That means that there may be unforeseen issues with manufacturing and shipping. While we have contracted the manufacturing process with a capable and proven factory abroad, there is always a risk of something unexpected happening.
Again, we will keep our backers updated with every event. Thanks!
