We worked closely with US Youth Futsal to develop the new Senda USHUAIA PRO futsal shoe. Here is what their coaches had to say about the shoe when they had a chance to test it in Buenos Aires.
We took samples of the USHUAIA PRO shoe to our native Argentina, home of the reigning Futsal World Cup Champions, to test it with local professional players. After hundreds of rigorous training sessions on all types of surfaces, the results were unanimous: the USHUAIA PRO is unlike any futsal shoe in the world.
We enlisted the best futsal shoe designers, players and coaches in the world to create the most technical and comfortable futsal shoe ever. We selected best-in-class materials for each part of the shoe, from the rubber gum sole to the leather upper, so it can be used at the highest level of play. Below are the design sketches we used to create our initial testing samples.
Senda is defined by its commitment to Fair Trade. Since 2010, Senda has been committed to making Fair Trade Certified Futsal balls to ensure better livelihoods and safe working conditions for workers, as well as no child labor. We identified a manufacturer that has been making premium quality shoes since 1991 and shares our commitment to workers’ well-being. As we grow into the shoe market we aim to secure fair trade certification for our partners, to proudly show this certification across our new line of products.
Risks and challenges
For the past months, the Senda team has been working tirelessly on all the design, production, and logistics aspects needed to launch the USHUAIA PRO Futsal Shoe. We have a very close relationship with our manufacturing partners, have spent weeks on the ground working on every detail of the shoe, and we also have a team supervising every detail related to production. We understand and acknowledge that no project comes without risk and challenges. Despite our planning, there are circumstances that may be out of our control. If we are met with these, we promise to communicate with full transparency to you. Global shipping can be complex and expensive, and that is why early on we decided to bring experts to take care of that. But even the experts aren't immune to weather, port congestion, and other uncontrollable factors. We promise to keep you informed when the USHUAIA PRO ships to you, and to post updates related to production and shipping progress once the campaign ends.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
