I want your photos of you wearing your boots!

Helloooo! 

I realize it's been a long time since I've posted any updates here, so now seems like the perfect time to do just that.

Firstly, the boots are AVAILABLE! You can get yourself a pair at jessicaswift.com.

And now for the updates:

1. The boots are making their way out into the world slowly but surely and are being sold in a few shops now-- in Denver, Vancouver, and here in Atlanta. Exciting!

I'm collecting photos of people wearing the boots, so I can put together the largest rain boot photo gallery in the world! Check it out-- I'm calling it Operation Puddle Stomp. :)

I'd LOVE to include a photo of you in the gallery-- please email them to me at jess[at]jessicaswift[dot]com if you want to join in the fun!

2. I'm now donating $5.00 of every online order to charity : water, an extraordinary organization that brings clean and safe drinking water to developing regions. What better organization to support than one dedicated to water? I'm also donating $50 or every wholesale order.

So your rain boot purchase will help save the world! Cool, right?

3. For those of you who've received the boots, your inner labels may be peeling. I know this sucks. I've figured out how to print some sticky-backed fabric labels here in my studio, and they're holding up vey well in my own boots. If you'd like a replacement set of labels, just say the word! Email me at jess[at]jessicaswift[dot]com and I'll send 'em to you straightaway. :)

That's it for now! I hope you're having a lovely Spring-- it's the perfect time for some rain boots, don't you think? If you haven't gotten yourself a pair yet, what are you waiting for?!
