It’s really quite rare for me to be this excited for another person’s project, but I have to say that that the awesomeness of this just blows me away!
Jessica Swift is one of my favourite designers and she is working on a project to add some of her amazing designs to rain boots that she is going to get manufactured!! As anyone who has ever even thought about doing this knows, that’s a huge step and me coming from working in manufacturing I know the kinds of costs that are involved.
I think what I love most about these boots is that they are going to have a secret message to remind you that you’re special and that you can live the life you want to. I know I’d love to have my shoes reminding me of that! I also love that she’s letting us share her journey. It’s rare that we get to see how these things go from thought process to production and I love that she’s brave enough to ask for the assistance she needs to help realise her dream of happy rain boots that remind you that you’re important!
To make this a reality she is asking for donations (with gifts for everyone who donates) through Kickstarter. If you want to learn more and see a cute video of Jess explaining in her own words, please check it out here.
I think it’s a great opportunity to support a great design project and to be a part of making someone’s dream come true.
And I’m all for making dreams come true!
If Jess made these boots pictured above, which ones would you wear?
I think I like the second from the right in the middle row and the yellow and green in the bottom row! It’s too hard to choose!
P.S. Did I ever tell you how much I love rain boots?! I looooove rain boots!
