Risks and challenges

As with any Kickstarter campaign, the timing of production and delivery will depend on the number of orders and variety of sizes we receive, but our team is ready to deliver high quality rewards as soon as possible. A larger order could help us deliver the shoes faster than expected, as we would be given higher priority from the manufacturer who also handles orders from bigger shoe companies that have somehow totally missed this obvious shoe-making opportunity.

We have pricing and quantity commitments from suppliers ready to go for a wide variety of outcomes. If for any reason we are unable to secure a final production run at the conclusion of this Kickstarter campaign, we will refund your money 100%. But it's happening, so calm down.

FAQ

  • We'd love to ship internationally. Even intergalactically. The problem is that shipping internationally via Kickstarter, like the triceratops itself, is a formidable beast. We're actively looking at ways to best ship internationally without overcharging/undercharging anybody. If this campaign goes well, we may be able to afford some more help on logistics and make international shipping part of a larger goal. Until then, we can only suggest that you use a mail forwarding service (see below for details).

    Mail Forwarding Services:

    For now, the best solution for anybody outside the US will be to use a mail forwarding company. These companies provide you with a US shipping address that you can use for your Tricera Hi-Tops order, allowing you to pay as if you were a US customer. (At the end of the campaign, we'll be distributing a survey to all backers to get shipping addresses, sizes, etc.) They forward the package to your international address, and you pay them directly for shipping/customs tariffs/etc.

    The companies we’ve come across that offer these services include:
    bongous.com, borderlinx.com, comgateway.com, goopping.com, myus.com, parcelbound.com, parcelzoom.com, priceusa.com.au, shipito.com, shopusa.com, stackry.com, and usgobuy.com

    We’d definitely encourage you to do a little homework to figure out what’s best for your particular situation. While we’re a little hesitant to force our international backers to deal with a third party, it seems like this makes the most sense for now.

  • We've had a lot of inquiries from you monsters for sizes larger than 13. The problem is that offering more sizes requires more outsole molds that increase the cost per shoe significantly. So, there's a chance we can add more sizes deeper into this campaign, but for now all we can ask is that you stay tuned for updates. As with shipping destinations, it's helpful to hear what the people want - so send us a message to tell us what size you need!

  • For now, Tricera Hi-Tops are only available in classic triceratops green. If we are able to surpass our minimum order quantity, we may be able to add more colors down the road. For now, however, different colors, light-up eyes, roller-skate heels, and pump-up horns aren't available - but we appreciate all of you who have been asking!

  • Yes - as much as we like to joke about using triceratops pelts, these shoes are made from vegan materials.

  • We wonder the same thing. But we are wearing them while we type this. They FEEL true. And soft.

    MULTIPLE PAIRS OF TRICERA HI-TOPS

    If you’d like to order multiple pairs of Tricera Hi-Tops, we’ll need you to do a little math: Just multiply the number of pairs you want by the price ($88 for kids sizes, $99 for big kids & adults). For example, for two pairs of kids shoes and one pair of adult shoes, pledge $275 ($88 x 2 + $99). When we distribute surveys through Kickstarter at the conclusion of the campaign, if funded, we’ll collect all the sizes required, plus your shipping address and any other necessary information. Maximum of ten pairs per person. For larger quantities, please pat yourself on the back and then contact us directly.
