Charlotte, NC — Boldfoot Socks, started by Charlotte-local Brad Christmann, officially launched their Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign on May 16, 2017, and the brand hit its funding goal of $7,500 in just 5 hours, hitting the $15,000 mark in the first 3 days. The brand prides itself on four key tenets:
1. 100% Made in America- Boldfoot’s entire supply chain is based in the US, as yarns are sourced in CA & GA, and all dying and manufacturing is completed just outside of Charlotte, North Carolina.
2. Free “Sock Insurance” – For each pair purchased, Boldfoot offers a replacement pair within 3 months should they rip, tear or develop holes. No questions asked.
3. 5-Star Socks at a Fair Price – Boldfoot offers great design, comfort and durability to both Men & Women alike at an affordable price, and they’re proud to say they have an average rating of 4.9+ out of 5 stars across hundreds of reviews.
4. Giving back to Military Heroes – Boldfoot proudly donates 5% of its annual profits to help Veterans in need find jobs, housing, improved health and more.
Christmann, who first launched the brand 3 years ago on Kickstarter, chose socks for their “broad appeal and limitless creativity.” After struggling with boring, low quality socks for years, he decided he’d had enough and began work on his own brand. The Kickstarter campaign expands the brand’s offerings to new designs, new sizes (Women’s & Men’s XL sizes), as well as their first Athletic line. The socks can be pre-ordered in quantities of 3, 6, 10 or 20 pairs, with custom options available as well.
Discussing his goals for the company, Christmann remarked, “In 12-18 months time, I hope to grow revenue to the mid-six figure range, establish strong partner & retail relationships, and more importantly, help thousands of consumers understand the importance of buying American-made. Just 2% of all clothing sold in the U.S. was actually made here (less than 1% of socks). I’d be quite proud if I could inspire even a few thousand Americans to purchase more USA-made products.”
The campaign is set to end on June 25, and the Kickstarter page can be reached via this link: www.kickstarter.com
