    Pedestal 2.0 Launch Tour & Recent Features

    Pedestal 2.0 Launch Tour & Recent Features

    As the months get colder here in Boston, the Pedestal 2.0 launch tour is here to keep us warm.

    Speaking of colder months, we recently got featured as a preseason training tool for skiers and snowboarders by snocru.com here: http://blog.snocru.com/4-preseason-training-essentials-for-skiers-snowboarders/

    Last week, we also got featured in an article for bodybuilding.com here: http://www.bodybuilding.com/content/editors-picks-4-tools-for-strong-runners.html

    Full disclosure, we pay nothing for these features. Instead these editors reach out and we send product to them to test and write about. What is most intriguing about these articles is the representation of the diversity of applications for Pedestals. Whether it is to be a stronger runner or skier, Pedestal Footwear will get you on the right track (pun intended) to crushing your goals. 

    Over the next two weeks, we are hitting the road for a few seminars and conferences. This week we are heading to Providence, Rhode Island for the NEACSM Conference. This should be a great opportunity to showcase our samples of 2.0's before they are available for pre-order.

    Next week, we are heading to Scottsdale, Arizona for the Parisi School Summit. Bill Parisi, the founder of Parisi School had this to say about his experience with his Pedestals:

    "Pedestal Footwear is a piece of equipment that every athlete should take advantage of. At Parisi, we like to have our athletes warm-up barefoot, and having the right protection during this time is crucial.  Pedestal solved a problem no one ever thought of, until now…."

    Over the weekend, we filmed our new video for our 2.0's and we had a blast (as you can see by the above photo). We are really excited to share it with you soon. Stay tuned as we will be updating our website shortly. 

    Thank you for all of your support. Keep crushing and please keep us updated on your Pedestal journey. We love seeing all of the photos and videos.

    With Love,

    Mike

    You spoke, we listened- Our 2.0's are almost here!

    You spoke, we listened- Our 2.0's are almost here!

    As we approach our first year anniversary, we wanted to share some exciting news. After receiving some great feedback from our customers, we started sketching and designing a new and improved product. 

    We are really excited for what is to come here at Pedestal in a few short months. Our first goal is to improve the functionality of the product and the customer experience associated with it.

    Here is a list of all of the additions included in the next versions (2.0) vs. the first (1.0):

    1. Silver thread/lining (2.0) vs. Silver treatment (1.0) - New silver lining will never wash out or fade, keeping the product bacteria and odor free for life.

    2. Smaller/more concentrated grips (2.0) vs. Large grips (1.0) - New concentrated triangular grips allow for better traction in lateral movements and durability on multiple surfaces. 

    3. Finer thread count (2.0) vs. Heavier thread (1.0) - New versions will be more lightweight and breathable. This means more athletic and faster drying time. 

    4. Mesh bag - Easy way to keep your Pedestals together in your bag or in the wash (although you do not really have to wash them given the silver lining). 

    5. Clear packaging - Same branded packaging but allows customer to see the product before opening.  

    6. Multiple colors- Available in 5 color patterns- black/gray, black/white, hot pink/black, eggshell blue/black, red/black)

    7. Athletic/sporty logo- More wearable and athletic look. More branded apparel to come soon (t-shirts, shorts, hats, etc.)

    8. Available in two styles- Low and Hybrid (6 inch)

    Here are a few first look photos of the hybrid style in eggshell blue/black...

     

     

    We look forward to having our new versions available for pre-order in the next few weeks. 

    Thank you again for your feedback and support. We look forward to an awesome second year in business!

    With Love,

    Mike
