Freestate fit as any other sneaker – When we issue release the size / colour survey (once the campaign has finished) please state your “regular” sneaker size. Please note that all brands fit slightly different so we also have a CM insole measurement guide on the main campaign page for you to double check.
No – Please double check your foot length in CM to gauge the best fit for you. With regards to the width Freestate Men’s sizes are a D fitting and on Ladies they are a B fit both are used by most footwear companies as a “Standard” fit.
We had to ensure that the sizes we tooled for production would be capable of generating sufficient order quantities to justify to initial tooling costs and as such we decided that we would run from a UK Ladies 3 to UK Men’s 11. If the demand proves such – we will look into expanding the sizes range as a stretch goal.
Freestate was designed to be used in water just as much as on land, we recommend that after use in the sea that they should be run under non-salt water to remove any salt residue that will appear on the surface of the shoe as they dry – this is perfectly normal and is easily washed off. But please note that Freestate is neither water resistant or waterproof.
The speed of drying will depend on the temperature and humidity of where you are – also direct warm sunlight will speed up the process. We recommend that once worn in water that you remove the insole prior to drying.
Your shoes will be shipped straight from Asia – You may well be liable for import taxes/dutie depending on your country of residence – we have no control over this and recommend that you check your countries import rates from China with your local import/export government department.
This is our very first Crowdfunding campaign but certainly not the first shoe we have worked on, Members of our team have developed, manufactured and supplied. Over the last 20 years our design/technical guys have made and supplied close to 1 million pairs of shoes for numerous brands.
Once our branding expert Tom had confirmed to us the name and Split sun logo we got on and applied right away to have the name checked an approved by the Intellectual property office – we waited 6 weeks and were given the OK, its our name and logo and we are proud of it – a shoe without branding is just a soulless foot covering in our book.
