Kickstarting Your Own Footwear

By now I’m sure that you have all heard of kickstarter.com.  Over the last 2 years we have seen some really cool projects launched as result of the crowd funding king, but did you know that it is also being used, successfully, to launch footwear brands? This could be an interesting option for those of you looking to do your own thing.  Below are a few of our favorites.
