This is incredible!  We have been dreaming about this for so long, and now thanks to all of you this is finally a reality.  We are thrilled, you should have seen us refreshing the project page every 5 minutes completely amazed for what is going on with HICKIES.

We can’t believe we made it to our target so quickly, and still with 41 days to go!

We are truly thankful to all of you who have also shared our project.  Seeing HICKIES on the wall of so many Facebook profiles, blog posts and twitter updates, makes us feel we are part of a community of people all around the world that believe in the power of good ideas.

We couldn't be more proud of having started this way, with you. We want real people to be part of this project, to change the way we wear sneakers together, and above all, to have FUN!! HICKIES is all about living life as an adventure and following crazy dreams.   

Now a new challenge begins, on this second stage of the Kickstarter campaign, we want to see how far we can go together.  You are all invited to become ambassadors of HICKIES.  Share this project with everyone you know, on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest, Youtube, Vimeo, Instagram or just tell your friend about us in the subway.

Your really inspired us!
