About

After months of research, testing, and countless prototypes, we are proud to release Sparrow Slippers into the wild!

Perfect for wearing all day around the house, or taking them on the road while you travel.  Wear them on your next flight or train trip.

Risks and challenges

At this point, Sparrow Slippers has been under development for well over one year. In addition to the many hours spent on the initial production phase (concept, mockups, size testing, etc.), careful consideration has gone into the operations aspect of the business as well.

However, that is not to say that there will be not be any unforeseen circumstances that may hinder production, Ie: material backorder, machine malfunction, etc. It is important for you to know that when facing production issues, we will always choose to deliver a quality product rather than rush and cut corners.

Bearing that in mind, we promise to keep you updated with any delays that may happen along the way. We sincerely want to deliver a high quality product that you will cherish for many years to come.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
