BENDY Update

Posted by Ashbury Skies (Creator)

Dear BENDY backers,

By now you should all have your shoes.  If you don’t have yours or if you have not heard from us about them, please let us know. We shipped all our orders in the past few weeks and we are enjoying seeing your pictures on social media. Please continue to tag us when posting in your BENDYs.

We have received some great feedback and would love to hear more. We love what we created but we want to know anything we can improve on as well.

Some of you have asked if you can still buy BENDYs now that the campaign is over. The answer is YES! We have all the colors from our KICKSTARTER campaign in most sizes and three new colors on our site now. Take a look here and please let us know your thoughts on the new versions :)

New BENDY colors: Aloe/Silver, Black/Black, Tan/White

As we build our ethical shoe brand, there is something that you can do to help. Please consider writing a product review on the BENDY on our site. Reviews are REALLY important in e-commerce in fact customers crave knowing what others think about the product they’re about to purchase. Data shows that reviews are the #1 factor that drives sales for a new product.  If all our KICKSTARTER backers wrote reviews, it would be REALLY helpful in growing our business.  Click here and then select the color you bought and you can scroll to the bottom of the page to complete your review.  Thank you, thank you!

We are fortunate to have some amazing neighbors and friends who supported the BENDY. Mary Sue's neighbors not only bought BENDYs but then hosted a BENDY celebration dinner. Pear martinis and BENDYs pair well together! Thanks again to Libby, Amie, Rozanne, Kim, Christy and Paula for your support.

      Thank you for the feedback. Black x black has really taken off on the site. We were not sure how the customer would response to the black bottom but it is a hit!

      LOVE the new camel/white (so fresh for spring/summer) and the black/black (for hip city gals on the go)
