Reaching Across the Pond | BILLY Footwear


In a previous shoe project (Swootz.com) Darin had worked with Winnie, a representative who specializes in China Product Sourcing and Manufacturing. Given our need for a real prototype and in a hurry, Darin reached out to Winnie on April 9 with our conceptual drawings and the pictures Mike sent us of our modified Sanuk shoe. On April 10 Winnie replied back saying she could make the shoe sample once she fully understood the project, had specific material call outs and received payment. Today, April 15, Winnie accepted the project and began working on our shoe. She gave us a range of 2-4 weeks plus 5 days shipping.

Hopefully we get the prototype sooner rather than later. And hopefully it works! Because of the time crunch we have to run Mike's and Winnie's efforts parallel. Fingers crossed.
