With its Custom Fit Sandal Kickstarter campaign set to close in less than 24 hours, Wiivv has successfully secured nearly $525,000 from more than 4650 backers for the project. The California startup launched the campaign last month and was seeking to raise a minimum of $250,000.
Wiivv Custom Fit Sandals are digitally mapped from users’ smartphone. Wiivvs are notably designed for specific feet, giving users unparalleled comfort and improved biomechanics that no other sandal can provide. Each Wiivv Custom Fit Sandals has the following:
- Custom fit 3D printed arches support your feet and lower body.
- Triple-density foam footbeds give all-day comfort.
- Deep, compressible heel cups absorb shock as wearers walk.
- No-rub toe thongs with custom placement based on foot width
- Custom-fit straps hold and support feet with every step.
As previously reported, the latest project made its debut less than two months after Wiivv secured $4 million during its Series A funding round and acquired eSoles, a custom insoles manufacturer. The company has also captured $3.5 million through its seed funding round in December 2015 and raised $235,054 from 2,765 backers through its first Kickstarter for its 3D printed insoles, BASE. Shamil Hargovan, CEO & Co-Founder of Wiivv, recently discussed the company’s crowdfunding success:
“Hitting our goal tells me that customers want custom products. We set out to prove that they want this new category of footwear and clearly they do. This is the second time we’ve gone to Kickstarter and set the record for the most-funded 3D printed product. This backing, plus our 15,000-plus Custom Fit 3D Printed Insole customers, proves this market is here to stay.”
The custom fit sandals are currently available through the Kickstarter campaign starting at $79. Estimated delivery is August 2017.
