Question: Who loves gorgeous High-heels? 

Answer: Almost every woman on the planet!

But isn’t it frustrating when fabulous footwear results in achy feet? Your night is either cut short, or you grin and bear the discomfort in the name of letting your hair down and living life to the fullest. After a night out painting the town red, you’re hobbling barefoot along the pavement, desperately waving down a taxi and needing a pedicure.

You could try not wearing those shoes again. You know the ones. The high heels that always give you blisters. But they look so good, so elegant and sophisticated. When you kick back and let loose with your friends, you want all the focus to be on looking your fine, glamorous self. That means looking your best and contending with shoes that may look fab, but leave your feet longing for the fluffy embrace of cozy slippers, or at least the cool, flat surface of the ground. So two thirds into the night you find yourself reluctantly slipping off your heels, resigning yourself to being your actual height and lighting up the dance floor with bare feet that will later pad from the taxi to your front door, while your shoes dangle from your fingertips.

Do you really want to be padding around with bare feet, worrying about leaving your pinkies vulnerable to the elements when all you want to worry about is which club to hit next? Are you willing to sacrifice your favorite footwear for the sake of soles that don’t burn and ache like you’ve been on a coast to coast walking challenge?

The answer is obvious: no way!

Wear the uncomfy shoes and then walk around barefoot, or wear something sensible… and boring. It has long been a dilemma that many have faced, but for which none have found a satisfactory solution… until now. Now you have the opportunity to solve this age-old problem with a groundbreaking new creation that will surely have your toes twinkling with delight.

Aftersocks™

Aftersocks is an elegant solution to a problem that most women face. A solution so simple that no one ever thought of it: Aftersocks that have been thoughtfully designed and crafted with an underside constructed from PVC and extra soft layers of cushioning that hug the contours of your feet.

Why “after”?

Because you slip them out and onto your feet after you’ve cast aside the shoes that got you into party mode at the beginning of the evening but are now bringing the party down. Slip on Aftersocks, and they may not only cushion your feet and help to relieve the soreness, but they will also prevent your feet from getting dirty and further harmed by the elements on the dance floor, along the pavement, in the taxi… you name it.

Aftersocks are created from premium quality cotton, nylon, elastic, and PVC. They’re hand washable, meaning that they are easy to care for and are sure to last and last. Great for the environment! 

Available in a range of colors, we have a style to match any dress, evening gown, or trouser suit. Choose from Smooth Black, Trendy Silver, and Pretty Gold designs to match any type of evening wear in your wardrobe.

Not only are they super versatile, but they are also super discreet. Pop them into your handbag, clutch, or even into your back pocket for complete peace of mind. 

Support our campaign and be one of the first to take their piggies to market and luxuriate in the elegant comfort offered by Aftersocks, the versatile best friend that every sophisticated lady needs close at hand, and foot!



You probably wonder, is it really that small? Is it really that strong? Well, you decide! We've put it to the test and you can watch the results here:

Size Guide

We've created Three sizes for the Kickstarter Aftersocks. We know that most regular socks have one fit, but because our "aftersole" is not stretchable, make sure to pick the right size. If you are doubting between 38-39, go for the bigger one, size M. Same applies for the Large. Then you are sure that the aftersole will protect the bottom of your feet entirely.


The Final Product Specifications: 

  • Premium Fabrics 

High quality Nylon and Cotton have been used to have the best durability and wear-ability. 75% Cotton | 20% Nylon | 5%.  Elastic

  • Aftersole technology 

Our special aftersole makes the bottom of the sock stronger and gives extra protection. Made of 100% PVC

  • Extra soft cushioning 

Added on the inside of the sock for an extra soft experience

  • Stylish design 

Three different designs available that can match any fashion outfit.

Rewards:

And because of all your great support, We will add a high quality Aftersocks Bag as a gift for all early backers!

About the creators: 

Hi there! We are Monika Trojanowska & Joel Bijlmer, the founders of Aftersocks. Like most good stories, ours started after a wild night out. After leaving the club Monika’s feet were hurting and she wanted to take off her high-heels. 

Of course, this was not something new.. Unfortunately, this time Joel had just twisted his back in the gym and could not offer a back-ride to the taxi this time. On the streets of Miami you never know what’s on the ground, so Joel didn’t want Monika to take off her high-heels and walk bare-feet. Neither did she have any backup shoes, cause she only had a small purse with her.

How did we get home? Well.. painful.. so we needed a solution!

Guess what? The next day we started thinking of a product that we could develop to solve this well known problem. We figured out that it had to be Useful, Portable and Stylish at the same time. After 9 months of developing, going back and forth with different solutions and designs, we finally created Aftersocks.

“Save your feet after a night out” Take off your heels, slip on Aftersocks™.

Because this is a new product, we faced the problem that we have to introduce people to this new “category”. In order to do so, research found that the Kickstarter platform would be the best choice. With this Kickstarter we hope to show every woman that this is the product they’ve been looking for!

We need to reach our goal, so that we can let our backers try the Aftersocks v.1 for the most affordable price ever. So we would love to see your support and help us fix a problem that most woman face!

Much love, Monika & Joel

Risks and challenges

We have worked extremely hard to create this product, launch it on Kickstarter, find a manufacturing partner and do the fulfilment, but here are what we see as the risks:

MANUFACTURING: The manufacturer is lined up, and we have quality assurance people on site during production. We already did a test run of 400 products, and that all went smooth.

FULFILMENT/SHIPPING: We never know, but we might get insanely busy and stuff happens that can’t be planned for: a supplier misses a deadline, customs clearance or a shipment gets lost. Those things could cause a delay. We work with our fulfilment partner directly in Hongkong that will ship your rewards worldwide with a tracking code. You will receive the tracking code as soon as the rewards are shipped.

OUR PROMISE TO YOU: We understand that no campaign comes without challenges. Despite our planning, there are circumstances that may be out of our control. We promise to communicate with transparency and work to resolve any issues in a timely manner.

Please keep an eye out for our survey in order for us to deliver our socks in a timely manner. We will be messaging you through Kickstarter and your email.
