Hi Kickstarter Backers.
We hope all is going well! Per our last update, we mentioned that we plan on shipping the Ziggy in the middle of February, so we hope you all did catch that!
In the meantime, we'd like to share where we are in the production schedule. Currently, we have 221 pairs that we're stitching now and we should be ready for lasting next week! Meanwhile, we have about two hundred more pairs to stitch to prepare for the lasting process. We want to make sure the upper stitching is not being rushed to ensure quality, so then the lasting process can move swiftly.
In addition, we've also started applying the Goodyear welt to the outsoles. The machine is about fifty years old and works like a charm. This does, however, take a bit of time to welt all the boots, but we'll be sure to keep you all updated.
Thanks for the support and your patience as we continue to work away!
Chris & Team
