After two years of planning and prototyping, our team finally did - we reinvented the shoe.

We wanted Switch to not only become the most functional and beneficial shoe there is for daily use, but also be made of the highest quality, natural cotton for ultimate comfort.

 

  

 

 

 

 

  

  

  

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

Immediately following the conclusion of our Kickstarter, we will send out a survey to collect your sizes and color preference(s) for your bases! Thank you in advance for your support in making our team's dream a reality!

Our trusted manufacturing partners need a minimum financial commitment from us to get started on a larger manufacturing run. This is why we have set our funding goal to $5,000. By reaching this amount, we are able to put in a larger order to our manufacturing partners, allowing us to serve our exact customer demand. As soon as we reach our funding goal, we will begin production in order to deliver our shoes as soon as possible to our backers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

    

 

 

 

             

 

             

 

 

 

 

  

Risks and challenges

We’re a team of designers, operational experts, and shoe veterans. We understand what goes into making this product and our team has more than 30 years of experience in the shoe industry.

Our factory partners are ready to go. We've been carefully prototyping and running small runs to ensure that our full scale production will run smoothly with the highest quality product.

Based on our past experience, we anticipate being able to fulfill orders within 8-10 weeks. If order volumes exceed our expectations, it might take slightly longer to fulfill orders. Our team will always be fully transparent and notify our backers of any and all updates as soon as possible.
