SLOWERS shoes | Organic, Vegan & Bonito

€7,766

Our shoes are animal free.

We only use natural materials: cork for the soles and GOTS certified organic cotton and linen for the uppers. Lining is certified organic cotton in natural colour, no dyes, perfect to wear without socks.

Our shoes are manufactured in Elche, Spain, complying with European laws.

Yes, with our simple straps system you can get infinite looks with the same pair of shoes. Change your look every day without consuming more resources than necessary.

The cork sole is very light and together with the organic cotton creates a total comfort shoe, adaptable, flexible, breathable ... shoes that you'll never want to take off ...

Every day they will remind you that you can walk at a different pace

   Yes, we love them, inside and outside. And you?

Crowdfunding is a new way of co-creating products and make great ideas become real. That's why we've come to Kickstarter to connect with its amazing community and make our new collection together.

But how does Kickstarter works?

  • FIRST of all you must choose your reward from the list on the right.
  • THEN you can make your pledge in a fast and simple way.
  • YOU will ONLY be charged if we reach our goal.
If we don't reach our goal no rewards will be produced. So we need your collaboration not only contributing but also communicating our campaign!

Three years ago Ringo and I started to walk together, every morning, every day. And it was walking that we realized that people are living too fast, so we decided to create Slowers, our shoes to walk at a different pace.  

Because every day we put on some shoes and what better moment to say: Today I will stop, today I'll walk at my own pace.

And yes, we were very happy and proud of our shoes Organic, Vegan and Bonito ... But one day Ringo looked at me say:

- Maria, this is OK, but you know? We can do it better.

- Better? Ringo was sure. He was clear. Me too.

So we got down to work, we wanted to redesign our product, to be more sustainable, more slow, more green, more beautiful. BETTER.

That was over a year ago, it took us more than a year of design, testing and back again. And now, we can finally say yes, honestly, we did it. Now Slowers is not only Organic, Vegan and Bonito, now Slowers gives you infinite possibilities in one shoe, now Slowers is more sustainable, now Slowers is BETTER.

We need your support to continue this dream together, to keep creating beautiful and meaningful things, to tell the world that we can walk at a different pace, to show that design and sustainability can go together.  

Right now we are ready to begin production and we are crowdfunding it because we want to have you on board to take this leap and grow. We want you to be part of this family.

Starting a new model of shoe has high production costs: we need moulds to manufacture the soles, and molds are expensive. We also need new patterns for each size and we have to buy all the materials in advance before we can start production.


We have got a great team together: we have the best suppliers of organic textiles, our manufacturer in Alicante with expertise and sensibility and the experience we have gained in the last two years. We have Maria's ideas and leadership, and Ringo's enthusiasm and inspiration. 

And now it's only you who is missing. Will you join us?
 
 

You can choose from any of the models below, and you'll also get our special edition hand-painted cork strap, which matches any model. 

Once we reach our goal and the campaign ends, we'll ask you what colour you want, which size and delivery details.

It's Christmas time and backing Slowers can be a beautiful present (the best one, Ringo says). So when you pledge you can ask for a gift card for your loved one explaining the great present you just made her. We will send the card online so you can have it for Christmas. Ask for English or Spanish version.

SIZE CHART

If we reach 100% we will be really happy and grateful

- We will start manufacturing spring-summer 2016 collection. 
- We will donate 2% to Santuario Gaia, a beautiful project that gives        shelter to farm animals. 
- And Ringo will make a happy dance for all of us. 


But we have many more plans for Slowers, so this is what we'll make when we get more than 100%


We want to see Slowers walking worldwide!
This video, photos and campaign have been possible thanks to the collaboration of these four supermen: Juan Antonio, Valentí, Teudo and Gonzalo.
 
We also thank the City Council of Morella for the theater, Nord tv for the video, Izaskun, Mireia, Gemma, Ana and Elena for being our models, Mary for checking my english and Adriana and her brand CUS for lending us their beautiful dresses.

Risks and challenges

It’s been 2 years now since we launched our first collection and started to take orders from around the world. We are passionate about what we do and we think that all the personals risks that we have taken are worth it.

We have estimated all our production costs and worked hard to prepare this campaign. But if we have to face some issues during our production process we promise you all the rewards will be delivered! We will communicate with our backers and keep everyone informed until the shoes are on your feet.
