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
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
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

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.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
