Well it is time. If you have requested a black Don sandal in exchange for backing the Vere Sandal Company your sandals have been completed and begun to ship out this week. The last of them are going out today. Thank you for your backing and your patience. Brown Don sandals are going out Friday / Monday. In the hole are Louies (starting with the black/grey) which will start to go out by the end of the following week. We will put up another update when the with schedules on the rest of the models as they get close to completion.
We began conceptualizing all this 25 months ago. Typically it is about 18 months to go from drawing board to commercialization, but that is the standard timeframe when there is an existing and operating factory in the mix. We have been in the factory only 12 months, we spent the first three or four months cleaning 40 years of oily grime, dust, and neglect. Not too terribly bad from this perspective.
With all that being said we truly do regret missing the opportunity of delivering the sandals for much of your summer vacations. So we wish you lots of warmth for the next few months.
John & Mike
