About this project
We are SUCCESSFULLY FUNDED! As of 1/1/2014 we reached our funding goal! Please keep in touch with us! Follow us on Facebook and check for updates on our website, www.BosFootwear.com for more information.
Our dream is to bring the world together one treasure and culture at a time. We believe every country around the world has unique products. It’s our goal to find them and bring them to YOU.
Our first treasure, Bös Footwear, hails all the way from Bulgaria. “Бос”, or Bös is a Bulgarian word that means barefoot. These shoes have been popular in Bulgaria for over 20 years, and it's time that the rest of the world enjoys them.
We can’t wait to see these shoes on your feet! To do this, we need your help! By selecting a pledge to the right, you can help Bös Footwear reach our funding goal of $10,000. Once we reach that goal, we will place our first order with our Bulgarian manufacturer, then send you your rewards!

Martenitsa: Bulgarian Friendship Bracelets
Spring is an exciting time in Bulgaria. It is a time to celebrate new life and friendships. Beginning on the 1st of March, it is customary to give your friends a red and white martenitsa bracelet, which they wear for about a month until they see either a stork or a budding tree. The bracelets are then hung on the budding tree to celebrate the coming of spring and rekindled friendship.
At Bös Footwear we also appreciate the importance of friendship, and your friendship means the world to us. We want to thank you for being our friend. For a simple $9 donation to help us get our feet off the ground, we will send you not just one martenitsa bracelet, but two. One for you, and one to give to a friend.

Risks and challenges
One of our founders previously lived in Bulgaria and is in constant contact with our manufacturer. We have found that they are capable of producing the product, quantity, and quality we are looking for to ensure your satisfaction.
We have also partnered with a well known and trusted shipping company that will watch over our product from the time it is picked up in Bulgaria until we have it in our warehouse here in the United States. They will personally help the product move through customs as smoothly as possible. You will be the first to know if any potential concerns arise.
Although not expected, a delay in production is possible. If there is inconsistency in the quality of products we will stop production until the issues are resolved. We are committed to delivering high quality products that exceed your expectations.
