We believe that being calm, cool, and collected is the best way to live, because you simply perform better when you’re relaxed. Our slippers engineer that state of relaxation by helping you chill out, combat stress, and recover energy, so that you can be your best, mentally and physically... without looking like a hobbit.

"Blending flexibility with comfort and Luxe isn't easy, but the team at TI:ME have done just that." - DeFY New York

"Slippers that look like sneakers make Uggs irrelevant." - The Vine

"Dougherty has created a shoe that looks like a sneaker but provides the comfort of a slipper." - NY Daily News

"I would contend that the soft-soled, plush-lined, yoga-matted walking-on-Air Jordans go one step beyond saving me from the hobbit foot aesthetic: the high-performance slipper sneakers will pretty much hide all indications that I'm wearing slippers at all." - Dude I Want That.com

T-Shirt Options 

Once our project is funded, we will send out a survey to determine which of the following designs will be produced for backers who choose the t-shirt reward. More options to come!

After our campaign ends, we will issue a survey to collect your sizing info. We are working to expand our offerings, so the more pledges we receive, the greater the likelihood that we can add sizes quickly. Right now, we can offer the following sizing options:

  • Men's sizes (full sizes only): US 6-13 and EU 38-47
  • Women's sizes (full sizes only): US 4-9 and EU 35-39

Stretch Goals

Here are a few potential colorways that we will introduce if the project is doing really well! Stay tuned for more on this!

 Here is the full version of our Kickstarter video!

This Kickstarter project will give us a push so that we can:  

 1. Go through our next round of design specs

 2. Order the custom materials needed

 3. Reserve factory floor time and tooling to produce our first run of TI:ME Slippers

THE TEAM 

Ryan Dougherty 

Ryan graduated from West Virginia University with a B.A. in Philosophy and an M.A. in Quantitative Research. Once a market research specialist, he designed gaming studies for the likes of Nike, Sony, Capcom, E.A., Atari, Blizzard, Zynga and more, but his penchant for the creative could not be satiated by the corporate sector, so he decided to branch out, and is now a founder of TI:ME Slippers. His aim is to make regular products extraordinarily comfortable so that relaxation can be incorporated into every aspect of daily life.

Daniel Bailey 

Mr. Bailey is an experienced footwear designer, developer, and true entrepreNERD. He owns and operates FTWRDSGN, a development and design agency that creates innovative footwear from concept to finished product. He also founded the digital footwear design studio and online magazine, Conceptkicks.com. His work has been featured on Complex.com, Nicekicks.com, Gizmodo.com, and more. He has consulted for brands such as Nike, DC Shoes, Reebok and others. 

Rahul Panchal

Rahul is a creative, an art director, and a entrepreneur as well. His work has won just about every award possible in marketing and advertising. He has won clients for international agencies such as Crispin Porter + Bogusky, Wieden Kennedy, and Young & Rubicam. He has worked with the likes of  Virgin Atlantic, Mini Cooper, Gap, ESPN, HBO, and more. His projects have been featured in publications including The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Newsweek, ID Magazine, and Ad Week.

Cory Wyatt 

Cory has been in a senior role within the shipping industry for over 10 years. He knows the ins and outs of every port on the planet, and can make a package seem like it teleported across the globe. He has been responsible for thousands of shipping containers for companies like Samsung, LG, Gap, Toys 'R' Us, Lowes, Walmart, and more. Cory is our "How" and "When" guy, and is the backbone of operations at TI:ME Slippers.

Risks and challenges

We have taken the steps necessary to line up our supply and manufacturing partners. We have good working relationships with our highly experienced factories, and will continue to work hard to ensure that we are on the same page with them. However, as with any project, there is a chance of unforeseen challenges coming up. We will stay in touch with you throughout the manufacturing process, keeping you updated on the progress of our initial order of TIME slippers.
