Monday, September 15, 2014 was an exciting day for us. It marked the beginning of our Brooklyn Boot Company Kickstarter campaign, where we began taking pre-orders for our debut boot. After figuring out cost of production, materials and labor, we landed on $50,000 as our campaign goal and opted for a 30-day window to raise the funds.
Fast-forward to one month later on Wednesday, October 15, which was decidedly an even more thrilling day for us. That morning at 9:00AM, we finished our Kickstarter campaign with an astounding $117,817 pledged by 857 backers who are actively helping us establish our Made In America brand. We’re beyond grateful to everyone who has supported us and we’re finally ready to make good on our end of the promise, which is to manufacture and deliver quality boots!
We’ve included a size chart on all of our product pages to help you find your perfect size. We offer free exchanges for our Kickstarter backers who initially ordered an incorrect size.
Production in our factory is in full swing and we are pushing hard to get our boots out to you next month. We plan to start shipping boots in the middle of November, but there’s a chance production will continue into late November/early December as we have exceeded our expectations for how many boots we’d be making! Either way, we’ll keep everyone updated throughout the process.
Thanks again to everyone that has backed and shared our project on Kickstarter. We are so unbelievably grateful for the support and response we’ve received, and we’re eager to continue making quality USA made goods available at an affordable price. With the end of our Kickstarter campaign, the beginnings of our brand can now push ahead in full force. Stay tuned!
