Finally, Forsakes for all! Our new Women's and Men's collections are here!



It's been an incredible 3+ years since you helped get our debut line of footwear off the ground! Whether it's a shout-out on social media, a recommendation to a friend, or a simple message to our inbox, we're continually floored by the support we receive from this community. Thank you.

We have some big news to share! Today, we're launching our first Women's collection, in addition to a significant expansion of our Men's collection. It was a long time coming and we couldn't be more excited with how these products turned out. You can check out the line at And remember, if you're interested in picking up a new pair, you can still use the discount code FORSAKEVIP for 25% off. This is for Kickstarter Backers only so we would appreciate it if you kept this code to yourself!

Thank you again for your generosity and support - past, present, and future.

New site and new shoes for Spring 2014!



We just launched a new website and a new shoes for the Spring 2014 season! Check it out at and let us know what you think. The new site includes a re-designed "Story" section that describes the history and philosophy behind the brand, as well as an "Experience" section that highlights individual stories, adventures, travels, and outings from the people who make Forsake what is (make sure you watch the video!) This is just the first wave of new content, features, and products that we're debuting over the next few months - we have a big year ahead of us!

You'll also notice we changed domain names. From now on we can be reached at No more of that .co stuff. We're growing up so fast!

Don't forget to use that FORSAKEVIP coupon code for 25% off any pair of shoes! Just for you.

Thanks again for your support!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! As we continue to grow Forsake, we're interested in learning more about how our backers use our product, the types of activities you take part in, and what you are looking for in a pair of shoes. We've put together a short survey and would be very grateful if you would spend 5 min answering a few questions! Link to the survey is below...

Thank you very much for your participation! Your responses will go a long way towards helping us design and build the best footwear possible.

Forsake Launch Party!

Hey Backers,

We're hosting a launch party on Saturday, 9/28, in Burlington, VT! If you're in the area (or ambitious enough to travel) we would be thrilled to have you join us! There will be live music, beer, gear giveaways, and incredible artwork on display from local artists. It will be epic. See photo below for details and email us at if you would like to join!
