The pledge amounts are currently very close to the estimated retail amount. However, part of this campaign will help determine how many shoes I can produce on first order (minimum 200) and that amount will help determine actual pricing. The amount of shoes being produced affects shipping costs, materials cost, labor costs, etc. so its impossible to lock in an actual cost until I can lock in the amount being produced. However, my goal is to keep these luxury shoes at an affordable price so that these shoes can be accessible to more people. The more shoes you back, the closer I will be able to keep to my retail price between $300-400.
