Production Facility / Machine Adjustments!

Posted by WETSOX (Creator)

Hello there to everyone in the WETSOX world! We wanted to provide a quick update: 

Because of a machine problem at the production facility we have partnered with to produce our first scaled run (the run which will be used to fulfill your lovely socks) some of the socks coming off the line were not up to spec when the product went into advanced testing. 

Because there is no way to discern completely which socks had been effected by the machine error, we are correcting the problem with the machine process and starting a new run of product. We know that no one likes delays- so we want to say thank you for bearing with us while we ensure that you get only the best quality from your WETSOX products. 

Unfortunately, this means delivery will be pushed back by roughly 4-5 weeks. We'll be updating weekly moving forward with anything that effects the timeline as well as a few pieces of fun 'behind the scenes' production content.

Thank you all again for your understanding and we apologize again for the delay.

Please feel free to reach out with any questions.

Our best,

The WETSOX team.

      Thank you for the update and working toward quality product. It does sound like some backers would like to take their chances with the current run. Perhaps they could pay the shipping for those and then receive the quality product they backed once it is ready for release?

      We're in the thick of the South African wetsuit season, and was hoping to use the product - what would the new ETA be with the 4 to 5 week delay?

      Any chance you can send us the damaged goods? We will miss wetsuit season if we wait another 4-5 mos
