I am very happy to report that we hit and surpassed the initial production requirements! We only needed 7 to get it rolling but we were very fortunate to secure 10 pre-orders! These awesome checkered-floor inspired Italian-made leather low top sneakers are coming to life!
I would like to express my sincerest gratitude to the 10 brave and generous souls who, despite FraternalTies being on somewhat troubled waters lately, decided that it would be wise to trust us with their hard earned money and spend it towards the production of our very latest premium merchandise (our very first Italian made footwear!). You ought to know that your untiring support helps keep our business and our family afloat. The first batch of 10 pairs is now currently being handcrafted in Italy and will be shipped to you directly from the factory. They will be ready for shipping by the first week of March. I trust that everyone is just as excited as I am!
Now that the initial requirement was met, our manufacturer in Le Marche, Italy, through the new creative startup AliveShoes, will begin the production of the first batch and will lock down this particular design configuration exclusively for FraternalTies. It is ours and will never be reproduced again. You have until April 5, 2015 or 54 days from the time of this writing to reserve a pair of these elegant looking sneakers.
