FINAL CALL TO ACTION!

First off, much appreciation for all of you supporting and allowing me to hawk my wares here. I am doing a final post to alert that our kickstarter ends Thursday night. The response has been overwhelming- we've nearly tripled our sales goal, and also got accepted into Macy's Fashion Incubator (brand accelerator program)!

Please spread the word in your networks to women needing this type of protection- its the last chance to get in early (at a discount)! Women need more options when it comes to safety footwear, and for our company this is an exciting first step (I'm a dad of two, I get a pass on the pun).


 
Thanks again,
Ryan and Emily
(sorry for the redundant FB post!)

Met our goal in less than 30 hours! Thanks for allowing me to promote our cause here. We will be rolling out stretch goals over the coming weeks. Please share!

Now that I'm thinking of it, what I would really want if your company is looking to expand its offerings in the future, is sturdy women's work pants with big pockets for all my tools. The men's sizes that are currently the only option are either too small for my woman's can, or too big in the waist.

Understood and we're totally on point with the "you do you" stance, its what led us through a year of surveys and outreach to people and professional organizations, to this product at hand (at foot?). 

I might actually have two nice side leads for you RE: pants..... check out some friends of ours at https://dovetailwork...llections/pants AND ALSO https://covergalls.com. They might be solving your exact needs!

I work with a 50% female team of technicians who would probably appreciate this!! Will share it around :)

 

 

Cool! I've shared with my company

Excellent, we are thankful for support on both accounts of you all ! If you have a PPE arrangement, or some sort of corporate stipend, for our type of product, we'd appreciate any leads! One of our goals is to get into company sponsored catalogs and etc, so people can know this actually exists!

How well do you think they would fit a man's foot?

Very generally speaking (since feet are more varied and unique than hands, etc), Women's sizes are 2 numbers up from Men's. So at our current highest size, that would be a potential choice for Men's 8 (which incidentally is around my size). As we grow we'll be expanding into a wider spectrum of sizes and styles based on feedback and of course encourage anyone to wear them as they see fit! (pun intended, not sorry, I've got a dad pass).
