About Wiivv Custom Fit Sandals
Wiivv Custom Fit Sandals is a new product being crowdfunded on Kickstarter.com that claim to be the first pair of custom footwear designed to both perfectly fit your feet and be affordable.
How Does It Work?
According to their website, most people are aware that traditionally flat flip-flops are actually very bad for the health and wellness of your feet. Their lack of a supportive arch can cause problems in your feet, ankles, knees, hips, and lower back, and their lack of cushioning means more impact on your body in general.
Wiivv Custom Fit Sandals, on the other hand, are designed to custom fit your feet so your whole body is supported. Their triple-density foam footbeds give superior comfort and the compressible heel cups absorb shock as you walk.
To provide their customers with this custom fit, they provide a mobile application which allows people to digitally map more than 200 data points on each foot, specifically pinpointing your unique foot length, width, and arch shape, as well as customizing your unique toe thong and strap placements.
Their website says that it takes them less than five seconds to take this data and accurately convert them to 3D models of your feet which will then be printed in their San Diego facility, and each pair will be inspected by their biomechanical experts before they are shipped.
Wiivv takes the customization one step further, also allowing their customers to choose the straps of their liking and to pick a special color for the arch of their sandal, if they choose.
Unfortunately this product is not yet available for sale on the open market at this time, as they are still in process of crowdfunding on their Kickstarter page. Their crowdfunding page says that people are able to purchase a single pair of Wiivv Custom Fit Sandals for $79, which they say is a discount off the eventual retail price of $95.
According to their crowdfunding page, it seems as though this product will begin being shipped to crowdfunding donators during August of 2017, though these dates may change in the future.
Because this product is not yet actually being sold on the open market, they also do not appear to have any kind of published Refund Policy available for their customers at this time. Hopefully once their product actually begins being delivered to customers that participated in their crowdfunding campaign in Summer of 2017, they will begin publishing these important policies, but until then customers will need to contact their Customer Service team with any questions they have regarding refunds.
Customer Service Contact Info
Customers who would like to contact Customer Service with any questions, concerns, or complaints can do so by submitting them directly to them by using the Ask A Question link at the bottom of the Kickstarter page.
Because this product is brand new there are not any available customer reviews to help prospective customers decide whether or not this product is right for them. It seems that the biggest hurdle towards this company successfully following through on their promises will be the accuracy of their mobile application to take photos and measurements accurate enough to create truly custom fit footwear.
It is up to customers to decide whether or not they are willing to take the risk on pre-ordering this product without knowing for a fact that this will be the case, though the hope is that this company will provide a refund or guarantee policy where adjustments can be made.
Competitors and Alternatives?
As mentioned above, there are other companies that make custom fit footwear but they tend to be prohibitively expensive for many people, so there are custom fit insoles which can be placed inside many different kinds of shoes, but not flip flops. Customers will just need to consider what will really meet their needs.
