About this project

We have very exciting news! 

We just found out we do not need to order nearly as many boots as we were originally quoted! Because of this, we don't need as much money either! We are canceling our current Kickstarter project to allow us to launch another one with a smaller goal that reflects our new manufacturing quote. 

Thank you all for your support! Our new project will be launching July 7, and once it's live, you can see it here.

I began looking for a cute pair of rain boots and found so many options out there! You may think, “That’s great, right?” Well, yes, except that I really couldn’t afford to buy a dozen different pairs of rain boots. I liked them all, and I felt I needed each one for a different reason, whether it be that it matched a specific outfit or they were just cute. I wanted them all! But then reality would check back in. 

I started wishing that there was a way for me to not have to decide on just one pair of rain boots. If only there were a way for me to buy one pair, and then buy wraps to go on the boots so that I could have as many different designs as I wanted. That seemed like it would be way cheaper and much easier to store! 

I began brainstorming, drawing, sketching, and designing. After a lot of time, I had finally perfected it. I had created a specially designed rain boot with a removable outer wrap. The wraps allowed me to have several different designs without having to buy several pairs of boots...and at a fraction of the cost! I was so excited! Saving money and looking cute all in one! What more could a woman ask for?!

Our unique patent-pending design features a specially made rain boot that has a slight indention which allows the wraps to sit flush on the boots. The wraps themselves are easy-to-clean, machine washable, and waterproof! How amazing is that? The wraps are also so easy to put on and take off. There are elastic bands on the boots that slip easily over the buttons on the wraps to keep the wraps secured to the boots. The wraps come in several different cute designs to help you complete any outfit. 

Now you can look cute and stylish on any gloomy day without spending a fortune!

I began talking to friends and family members to find out if anyone else shared in my rain boot dilemma. Most of the women did and loved my solution! So after more sketching, drawing, idea-making, and planning, we decided to try to make Aly’s Boots a reality. And that’s where you come in. We would love to help women everywhere save money and look cute, but we need your help to raise the money for our first production run. We’ve gone as far as we can in this process. 

We’ve started the patenting process, had the legal work done, paid for the engineer drawings, found a manufacturer, and tried to spread the word. But now we need your help to get to the next step. If we can raise $30,000, we will be able to make our first run of wraps and boots. This would make a young woman’s dream come true, and have women everywhere looking cute and fabulous! So are you ready to help us make our dream a reality? I sure hope so!

We also need your help to share our story! Tell your friends, your family, your neighbor, even your cashier at your local Walmart! Whether you can help by backing us or not, you can "like" us on Facebook here. And be sure to share our project on Facebook, Twitter, or anywhere else you hang out online! So spread the word and share the great news! 

Our goal is to help women everywhere save money and still look awesome! Why can’t your rain boots match several different outfits? Why do they have to just match one? And why should you have to choose between a cute outfit or dry feet? And where would you even store all of those rain boots you want anyway? We can make all of that so much simpler and easier. 

Affordable, fun, and cute…without all the extra money or storage. How great is that? We want women to love the way they look from head to toe and save money in the process! How great is that?! 

And always remember, When it rains on your parade, just put on a really cute pair of rain boots. <3

Risks and challenges

We understand that there are always risks and setbacks when it comes to manufacturing. We are working with a team of people who have been manufacturing rain boots for many years and have worked out the issues that may come up as a result. Our boots are unique in a very special way, so we understand that delays may happen. We will do everything in our power to deliver a great product on time to our backers and keep them updated at every point. If there is a delay at any point, our backers will be the first to know. We appreciate your support and your belief in us, and for that, we will make sure we deliver a product worth having and wanting. Thank you.
