Bendy Update

Posted by Ashbury Skies (Creator)

Hello BENDY backers,

Happy New Year to all of you! 

You have all played a significant roll in bringing the BENDY to market. We are thrilled to announce we are starting to ship next week.  2019 will be the Year of the BENDY for us.  All of our components, including our awesome footbed arrived in our factory in good shape.  We will ship most of our early bird backers by the end of next week and the balance of our backers by the following week. 

Although it sort of feels like an end to a long journey, it is really just the beginning for us. This project began two years ago and we are very proud of what we have accomplished. We have all been completely amused (and humbled) by the support our friends and colleagues gave us. We leaned on so many to get to this point.  Treating people well over the years paid off :) Thank you to our Moms for teaching us right!

That said, we think we have delivered on our promise to bring to market a modern, comfortable shoe with a lower carbon footprint. Our footbed is the kind you would find in a high performance running shoe. You will feel it when you slip it on.  With the work place getting more casual, women are ditching heels in favor of more comfortable shoes. It is very hard to find shoes that are comfortable that are not sneakers. The BENDY hits this sweet spot. But ultimately you are the judges. We hope you love your BENDYs and that you agree with us that they are comfortable, fit true to size, and you feel like you have cool, edgy style when you slip them on. 

We REALLY want your feedback. If sizing is off, please let us know as you can exchange for the right size.  If you have any ideas and suggestions on how to improve we want to hear from you too.

Take care and thanks again for your support.

xo, xo,

Mary Sue, Yvette and Caroline
