Back our Kickstarter campaign for a chance to win your choice of our Black Marble or Grunge pattern shoes! The winning backer receives 1 pair of either Black Marble or Grunge patterned boots, one pair of Thatcher Finch socks, one Thatcher Finch sweater, a shoe care kit, extra shoelaces, shoe horn, and a Thatcher Finch shoe box. The winner will be selected on Kickstarter Live.

The artists at Thatcher Finch are the same men and women who work for some of the most innovative branding companies in the world. Their design artistry is deeply rooted in brand identity, graphic design, and cause-oriented initiatives. Together, we created an attainable, expressive, ultra-luxury dress shoe that comes packed with features and is designed for comfort. The traditional construction of men’s boots and shoes are combined with our innovative design and bold patterns. Thatcher Finch shoes are built for the progressive stylist. Help us make our first production!

We’ve mastered the process of printing on leather to create a seamless, wear tested, and bold statement on each shoe. Using a digital application process, our patterns bond directly to the leather to create a long-lasting wear, avoid flaking, and reduce the visibility of scuffs.

Thatcher Finch will be built around you, our audience. Our website will introduce a unique place for our audience to submit their inspired artwork and connect it directly to a cause they’re passionate about. After Kickstarter, each shoe design will be voted on and selected by, the Thatcher Finch community for production. We’re creating shoes that are comfortable, elegant, exciting, and most importantly- inspired. By using our audience inspired design process we’re uniting our efforts, in walking toward causes we’re passionate about.

Traditional style meets the modern gentleman. Our gold fleck shoe is a reflection of the constant opportunity to be innovative and bold. We chose a midnight color that can be worn as a black or dark navy shoe.

Uplifting artistry deserves a wide-scale platform. Our colored marble shoe brings art to life. 

While these stretch goals are ambitious, we're working hard behind the scenes to make them a reality. And we'll need your help every step of the way!

Match any Thatcher Finch shoe with high quality, soft, and durable dress socks created specifically for you, our wearer.

We’re introducing a stackable box design that pulls out like a drawer for easy access each time you use them.

Waxed dipped, matching laces, built to remain tied and compliment your bold patterns

Modern fit, comfortable, and complementary — our Thatcher Finch sweaters are the perfect addition to any wardrobe. Available in light heather grey, deep navy blue, and true to size.

Our shoes are handcrafted and produced in an artisan-inspired workshop specializing in high-quality leather dress shoes and boots.

Each dress shoe & boot is made with full grain calfskin leather uppers & lining. They are hand crafted and uniquely patterned. No two patterns are exactly the same.

The digital application process coupled with other manual processes gives each pair its unique characteristics. Each pair goes through a rigorous inspection to ensure that every shoe is of the highest quality.

When it comes to everyday style, no matter how good your shoes look, comfort is just as important. Thatcher Finch dress shoes are flexible, light, and padded. Designed to provide a comfortable fit each time you lace them up. 

Our direct to consumer model is well-known and highly utilized. There’s a reason for this. We eliminate the middleman. We keep our markups reasonable. And we deliver exceptional shoes and boots at a price that makes sense. Not only for our Kickstarter backers, but for our entire audience.

Becoming one of our backers means a lot to us, much more than just buying a pair of shoes or boots, at an amazing price. And, we want to show our thanks and appreciation to you in return. Each backer at any pledge level will be added to our Thatcher Finch community list to get exclusive access to the following:

Once the Kickstarter campaign is funded, we expect 2-3 weeks of order processing time. Production typically takes 8-10 weeks, and shipping approximately 2 weeks. By March 2019 we expect to be shipping to you from our shipping facility.

We have the ability to ship to most countries world-wide and will provide free shipping for all super early bird purchases (US, CA, AU).

If the need for an exchange arises due to incorrect sizes, we will need to charge for the exchange shipping both ways as we’re working on getting Thatcher Finch off the ground! This is true for domestic & international orders.

All exchange requests must be submitted within 30 days of receiving your shoes and/or boots. The cost of international shipping (if applicable) will be charged at the time of the survey once the campaign is over and will vary based on the destination country.

You can see international shipping rates here. If applicable, duties and local taxes will be charged by the appropriate authority at the destination country. Please determine these charges locally.

Our founding team, Danny and Brian, grew up with a healthy obsession for shoes. Danny, an avid shoe collector, product developer, and design enthusiast, has postulated innovating the men’s dress shoes industry for many years. Coupled with Brian’s extensive experience in sourcing and manufacturing from the finest and highest quality artisans throughout the world- Thatcher Finch was formed. Formally educated in Business, Marketing, and Product Development they’ve obsessed themselves with designing and producing luxury footwear of the highest quality.

The additions of other key team members has made Thatcher Finch a reality. Their collective footwear experience ranges from designing & manufacturing to digital marketing, branding, social media strategy, e-commerce platform expertise, warehousing and logistics. Together, the Thatcher Finch team has done it all.

To assure that our supporters receive top notch service, we put together a team with extensive experience in product innovation, footwear logistics, and distribution.

In our first Kickstarter campaign, we’re fully prepared to exceed our backers' expectations. We’re honored and excited to share Thatcher Finch with the world, and in turn, provide a platform for our audience to help shape our future design releases.

Luxurious Innovation. We spent a lot of time prototyping, wear-testing, and engaging our audience to determine the types of patterns that would be both innovative and luxurious. We’ve spared no expenses in ensuring you will get only the best.

Affordability. By implementing a direct-to-consumer business model that delivers your shoes straight from the artisan to your doorstep, we eliminate the need for retailers, wholesalers, marketers and other middlemen. The limited release, one-of-a-kind luxury you will experience with our shoes is incomparable, at a price that is unparalleled. Less than $200 for a $400-$800+ shoe.

Transparency. Your commitment to us is only the beginning of our relationship together. We are committed to you, our audience. We will keep our relationship strong by delivering innovative boots and shoes and communicate with you every step of the way. You will get regular updates as we fund, produce, and ship out your one-of-a-kind shoes. Get in touch with us anytime, about anything!

Exclusivity. Every Thatcher Finch shoe and boot pattern is uniquely applied and handcrafted, meaning that no two pairs are identical. However, each pair goes through a thorough inspection process to assure the quality you expect from a world-class luxury brand.

Experience & Reliability. Thatcher Finch was founded by a team of enthusiasts with a lifetime of experience in the design and product industry. We don't make commitments that we can't honor. We have the infrastructure and expertise to assure a smooth process from taking your order through delivery. We want to be your go-to brand for all things men's luxury, and we will earn your confidence one pair at a time.

We are building a community of contributors through Thatcher Finch. Your support and in some cases, your creativity, will help build the Thatcher Finch family, and shape the direction of each product release and cause we support!

YOU are key to the success of our campaign, and ultimately our company. We want Thatcher Finch to be a representation of the causes you’re passionate about, your designs, your style, and your life!

We need your support to get our first collection off the ground and to assure the Thatcher Finch community, everywhere, has access to luxury statement shoes!

As you become part of our inner circle, help us by sharing our campaign with YOUR inner circle. Thank you!

Risks and challenges

We have a lifetime of experience in product manufacturing and logistics. We are well organized and prepared to confront any situation that may arise. We have seen it all.

The most common risk in manufacturing is production delays. The manufacturing process relies on multiple components coming together at the same time. While we are very well versed in managing production and delivering on-time, there is always the possibility of a delay. However, we will be providing updates every step of the way to keep you fully informed.
