Stealth Ultra - A Shoe For Training, Movement & Life

$11,899

The Stealth Ultra is an extremely versatile training, movement, and lifestyle shoe made to meet all your footwear needs.

We believe that style and function must both be optimized for either to be achieved. Pursuing that synergy is what has led to the Stealth Ultra. Created for some of the highest athletic demands while maintain a lifestyle feel, the Stealth Ultra shoe will hold up in just about anything. Not to mention, it’s extremely comfortable for everyday life. We love it, and we think you will too :-)

Stealth Ultra | Training. Movement. Life.
Stealth Ultra | Training. Movement. Life.

Let’s face it: most shoes are specialized. You can buy a lifestyle shoe and wear it out on the town… but you can’t go hiking in it; or you can buy an athletic shoe, but it’s usually only good for one sport; and when you do finally find a cross-training shoe that matches a general movement feel, it’s probably designed by a big company that has purposely given it a crazy color scheme so you have to buy matching clothing to go along with it. How come no one just creates awesome shoes that are versatile and match with everything? Well, that’s where the Stealth Ultra comes in.

We designed this shoe for people from all walks of life. That’s because a) we love people!! And b) That is us – we come from all walks of life! For the people, by the people – that’s how we view what we do.

Whether you are a focused athlete, someone who trains casually, a Ninja Warrior fanatic, an artists, a creator, a student, a dreamer, a visionary, someone who loves Star Wars or video games or someone who just wants an ultra comfortable shoe to wear on the daily, we made the Stealth Ultra for you. Really :-)

 We have designed the Stealth Ultra to be your go-to shoe no matter the occasion. “Training. Movement. Life.” Is the mantra. For that we needed a true lifestyle feel accompanied by incredible performance capabilities, great durability, and insane comfort through and through. We think from the first time you put on the shoe you’ll feel the Take Flight difference.

This video will give you a great look at the shoe so you can see the features for yourself.

 We designed this shoe with a true-to-fit sizing that mirrors most large shoe brands. We’ve found that half sizes are pretty redundant with only 4mm of difference between them. Because of this, we are making only full sizes. Our promise is, the shoes will fit great! And if they don’t? We will replace them free of charge : ) Plus when the time comes to choose your size, we’ll help you if you have any questions to make sure you get the right shoe the first time.

We might be a bit old-fashioned but we believe in doing things the right way, and that means putting the customer first. In that way, we stand behind this shoe 100%. We’ve tested this shoe, we love it, and so we promise is you will love it too. And if you don’t? Well then we’ll give you your money back, no questions asked : )

We gotta admit - of everyone our shoe is good for, kids are probably the best! Who moves more and in more diverse way than kids?! So in addition to launching this shoe, there is one thing we’d absolutely looove to do, and that is launch it in kids sizing. The barrier, however, is cost. New molds and patterns are expensive, and to do it right, it’s going to cost a lot more. So the only way we can launch youth sizing is if we cross the $25,000 barrier. If we reach it, we will launch youth versions of the shoes.

For pledging to our campaign we have a few great rewards to offer: from simply being one of the first to wear this shoe and receiving a big discount; to having us teach a Parkour/Freerunning workshop in your town; to even receiving customized shoes! What we aspire to bring through our products is immense value to our customers (aka family), and when leveraged through this Kickstarter campaign, the value is even greater.

Take Flight® is a small clothing and shoe company based in Portland, Oregon. We started making apparel and shoes for the discipline of Parkour, and we’ve realized over the years that the demands of the sport make our products amazing for so many other things. So we’ve started making versatile clothing and shoe products for movement, training, and life.

Mission

Our mission is to produce the highest quality athletic shoe and apparel for customers worldwide, while providing people the inspiration to discover their own potential through movement.

Jump. Fly. Dream.™

Our company slogan is "Jump. Fly. Dream." We designed this slogan because inherent in this phrase is a perspective Take Flight represents and an inspiration we strive to pass on to others. "Jump. Fly. Dream." isn’t just a call to action, it is an appeal to the specific goals and aspirations everyone has to achieve. For all your aspirations, no matter what they are, "Jump. Fly. Dream." doesn’t just say “do it,” it says dream big, and pursue those dreams until you reach them.

We have a robust social media that we use to connect with our fans and inspire the world through great movement. If you love our vision for footwear, movement, and community, click the images below to connect with us on our various social media platforms. We’d love to hear from you :-)

Thank you so, so much for checking out our campaign, and supporting our footwear and lifestyle vision. It all comes back to supporting people and communities, and we are so grateful that you've become a part of that vision. We don't believe in "customers". We believe in family. If you join us in what we do, then you are now a part of our family. Thank you and welcome!

Risks and challenges

This is our 3rd shoe, and by now we are really comfortable making shoes. There are always challenges with production, logistics, and other aspects, so we've assembled a great team that can overcome just about anything. We have a great factory partner and we have a team on the ground via a fantastic sourcing agent. If there are any setbacks of any kind, we will keep our backers fully informed. We stand behind these shoes 100%, so if you pledge for a pair of shoes, then you can sit back and relax. We’ll be doing all the lifting to make sure a fresh pair of kicks arrives at your doorstep in no time : )

    Take Flight Parkour Camp + 40 Pairs

    We gotta’ admit, we don't expect anyone to nab this one, but we thought, “Why not?” We think it’s a pretty solid deal : )

    Do you own a Parkour/Freerunning or Ninja Warrior Gym? Then allow us to bring our movement expertise to you in the form of a custom Parkour & Freerunning camp! We will fly out 2 of our pros to your gym wherever it is located (USA or Canada), and we will spend 4 hours on two successive days running a Parkour/Freerunning camp for you. We’ll design the camp to fit your facility and client base, plus we’ll give you 40 pairs of our amazing versatile Stealth Ultra shoes. If 40 pairs isn’t enough, you can order as many more pairs as you like for only $49 each.

    Here is an idea. Imagine marketing the camp as a 2-day Parkour camp with admission. Maybe you charge $150, and each student also gets a pair of $95 shoes? Who wouldn’t sign up for that?! And if 50 students sign up you make money. Or run a camp and resell the shoes at full retail. How you do it is completely up to you. It’s just one way everyone can win through an amazing partnership of gym, brand, and footwear.

    In addition to the camp and shoes, we will send out a special email touting your company to our 10,000 person subscriber base, AND we will make social media posts about your company on our Instagram and Facebook. We always go above and beyond for those who work with us. Trust us, you’ll be very pleased :-)

    Thank you for becoming a part of the Take Flight family and making this shoe a reality!!

    (After the campaign we will work with you to find the best date for the camp, and we’ll help provide/create marketing images so you can ensure it will be a success. You can choose your shoe sizes after the campaign as well. If you have any questions about this reward, just let us know :)

    We gotta’ admit, we don't expect anyone to nab this one either, but we thought, “Maybe. You never know!” In our defense, we think it’s a pretty solid deal, too : )

    Have you ever thought, “Hey, I'd love to have my own shoe with my own logo!" Well trust us, it’s an intensive process, and it’s really expensive. Well how about this – we will do all the work for you through producing our Stealth Ultra for you as a custom shoe with your brand!

    Our team will work with you to replace our logos on the shoe for your logos. It’ll be our work and experience brought to you under your brand name. You'll get 200 pairs delivered with free shipping included. You can resell the shoes at your business or give them away as gifts to your employees. Of course, if you are stocking up on shoes for yourself then that's awesome too. 200 pairs of our shoes will last a lifetime lol :)

    In addition to the shoes, we will announce you as a company partner and work with you through our social media to bring awareness to your brand through text, image, and video posts. We have more than 100,000 total followers, and we always go above and beyond for those who work with us. Trust us, you’ll be very pleased :-)
