A few years ago my friend and I noticed our friends and ourselves sliding around and soaking through our shoes because none of us wanted to wear winter or hiking boots around campus and at ski areas. This inspired us to start a company that makes versatile shoes with the performance features of a purpose built hiking boot (waterproof/breathable membrane, lugged sole, etc.) and the style of a casual shoe. We put in 2 years of work developing the company and our designs and now we're ready for mass production.
Our project is now on the crowd-funding site Kickstarter.com to generate the money for mass production. We are offering a bunch of rewards for pledges including pre-ordering the shoes at the wholesale price of $75. They will retail for $120-$140 so this is a really good deal for fully waterproof shoes.
We started Forsake for our fellow skiers and snowboarders so check out our video and get yourself some shoes!
