The New and Improved Foot Hammock and Foot Hammock Stand (Canceled)
The original Foot Hammock is back and better than ever with some exciting changes–including a brand new stand!
We launched our first model on Kickstarter in January 2015, and thanks to you, our wonderful, loyal Kickstarter backers, we were able to bring this idea from a college dorm room to thousands of our fans. Now we have a highly improved version of our product and we want to give you a chance to get your hands (and feet) on it before anyone else!
The patent-pending Foot Hammock Stand now allows you to use your Foot Hammock anywhere there is floor beneath you (so pretty much everywhere), and no more adhesive means you don’t have to stick it under a desk! Enjoy your Foot Hammock in more places than ever before! We even made it collapsible so you can take it to and from work, home, or wherever else you hammock your feet.
1. Your feet deserve a vacation for all the hard work they do for you.
2. Chances are you already enjoy putting your feet up when you sit anyways.
3. You get cold feet when you sit at your desk and want a heated foot hammock to change the way you think about life.
4. You want to spend less time getting comfortable and more time on gaming, or coding, or editing, or browsing the web, or whatever else you do while sitting.
5. You want to have the coolest new workplace product to show off to all of your coworkers. They'll be like, "whaaaaaaaat?"
6. You and your coworkers are playing a giant game of hot lava and you want to win while getting some work done.
7. Maybe one day aliens with sore feet will invade Earth and only a footrest like The Foot Hammock will appease the alien overlords and allow us to live in peace. Maybe.
8. You want to buy your soul back from the Illuminati but they will only return it to you in exchange for one Foot Hammock.
9. You opened a fortune cookie and it told you to seek for more support in your life (specifically of the foot variety).
10. You’d like to make sitting time focused, productive, and just better overall.
It is long overdue that we take care of our feet, since they do so much for us. We spend so much of our time and energy for the sake of comfort in other areas of our life: our beds, desk chairs, pillows, ergonomic keyboards, etc. It’s time we show our feet the same kind of appreciation and comfort!
All models are machine washable: a feature we felt was necessary on a product with so much contact with our feet and shoes! Foot Hammockers are able to remove the pipes from their Foot Hammock and toss it in the wash whenever they want! The new Foot Hammock models don’t have a zipper like the original, just a little pocket so you can pull the pipes out when you’re ready to throw them in the wash.
The new and improved Foot Hammocks also incorporated the fleece blanket attachment into the fleece hammock! The extra layer of fabric helps (especially with the heated insert) to keep your toes toasty.
We had our original Kickstarter backers in mind when designing the stand. We made it backwards compatible, so if you have your original Foot Hammock it will work with this new attachment method! (we created the extra stand for those of you who want to use the stand with your original Foot Hammock without trying out the new one.)
The new heating pad is NOW AVAILABLE in 120 V and 220 V for more international compatibility. In the surveys we send out you will be able to choose which version you would like.
EVERY FOOT HAMMOCK COMES WITH A STAND, but the stand rewards come by themselves so if you’re backing the “extra stand” option make sure you have an original Foot Hammock to use it with.
Because we love our Kickstarter supporters so much we’re going to be giving you a $10 discount across the board from the suggested retail, as well as offering early bird versions of each one of our products.
In addition to that discount, since The Foot Hammock makes such a great employee incentive gift, the bulk rewards come with extra foot hammocks! Get some Foot Hammocks for your hardworking employees to show them you appreciate them and to let them appreciate their feet! Buy 3 get 1 free plus shipping (of the same type with the same accessory, so foam or heated inserts included), and buy 10 get 2 free plus shipping.
Truth be told, this timeline is on the longer side because we’d rather surprise our backers with an early release than disappoint you with a delay! Quality is of the utmost importance to us and we want to make sure you are getting wait you paid for. So if all goes really well we could ship well before July 2017 but that’s what we’re shooting for. We will provide consistent updates throughout the entire process, even if there is no news to tell you. We really value our Kickstarter backers and want you to be informed on what’s going on.
Risks and challenges
This project has similar challenges to all projects manufactured and produced in mass over seas, such as component quality, communication barriers, and timing. To mitigate risk, we have already built relationships with partners and factories, and this product is already in the hands of these manufactures to finalize and produce in mass. While it is unlikely that we experience delays, quality and safety are our top priorities, and we will not ship a product until it meets our standards.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
