Arrived

Arrived

Hello world. The store is officially open!

What a ride it has been, and this really is only the start. It's like celebrating that you made it to the start line, like qualifying for the Olympics, but you really have no idea where you're going to finish the competition. We could lose in heat 1, or make it to the podium. I'm hoping, and confident, it will be the latter.

There are tons of individuals and businesses to thank, but specifically I want to personally thank those who played a pivotal role in making it happen.

  1. Interior Designer, Amber Kingsnorth, and her team at MāK Interiors.
  2. Our millwork provider, JMV Woodworks.
  3. General contractor Peter Streiling, from Rockridge Fine Homes.

We couldn't be happier with the space :)

Please come check out the store; I think you'll be quite impressed as well.

Store Update

Store Update

We're almost there!

Since receiving our building permit we're actually ahead of schedule! That's the first time I've heard those words in the past year. Thanks to that we've scheduled to open the store on December 15. We're throwing an Exclusive Launch Party that night. To be invited all you have to do is order anything from the site before then.

Special thanks to Amber and her interior design team at Mak Interiors for putting the design together, and to Ken and Peter at Rockridge Homes for building it out.

The Unveiling

By James Lepp

The Unveiling

It was back on March 1 that I originally reached out to our "Original 7" artists. Most of them at that time thought it was some sort of scam, and I suppose rightfully so. There was no website, no prototype, no line art even...just an idea. After meeting with them however, they realized the potential, and thanks to them we now have a full collection of physical products.

It goes without saying that yesterday (Nov 19) was a monumental day. It was the first time any of the artists had seen the shoes. There were videos, images, snapchats, instagram posts, but nothing tactile until yesterday. Each artist took their turn on the stage and uncovered each pair that they designed. They finally realized...it wasn't a scam!

Here are some more images from the Unveiling Party:
