Barcelona-based cobblers Les Chausseurs launched their crowdfunding campaign on Crowdcube Spain earlier last week and have already taken in more than 50,600€ of its 90K€ objective from over 27 investors. 20% equity is being offered.
“I chose Crowdcube for several reasons; first, because its team explained the process to me very well, what we could do and how we could utilize the platform; they helped me a lot with the economic part of the project, and with the content as well, making everything so easy,” commented Lambert Perera Cortes via email. “In addition, Crowdcube’s team is young and dynamic; the projects they have on their platform are very interesting and their audience seems to be the same as ours.”*
Les Chausseurs was founded in the Gracià neighborhood of Barcelona 2013 by Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture Parisienne alum Perera Cortes. Perera Cortes has experience at a variety of fashion houses including BaronBaronne, Saint Laurent and Lanvin, while Les Chausseurs shoes have been shown in Berlin, London, Madrid, Barcelona, Seoul, Tokyo and this past week at Paris Fashion Week. Since September 2015, Les Chausseurs has sold more than 6,000 pairs of shoes.
Funding from the campaign will be used for marketing to position the brand better globally and online, for the creation of the new line of entry level footwear and sneakers and opening a second store in Barcelona. Les Chausseurs plans an expansion from Gracià to Barcelona Centre, Madrid and probably Sant Sebastian, with sights on ultimately franchising the brand on a national level.

*”Escogí Crowdcube por varias cosas, la primera porque el equipo me supo explicar muy bien que podíamos hacer y como. Me ayudaron mucho en toda la parte económica, de textos y lo pusieron muy fácil,” Perera comentó Cortés vía correo electrónico. “Por otra parte porque el equipo et joven y dinámico, los proyectos que tienen en la plataforma son interesantes y tienen un público que creo va bastante bien con el que tenemos.”
