UPDATE: This is for an additional 75 pairs made available to those who missed out.
They will be delivered soon with the other Winter Solstice's. You are merely ordering on the end of the previous pre-order of those who patiently waited until these were produced.
TO ALL OTHERS... WE THANK YOU AND UPDATES WILL BE ON THE APP AND WEEKLY CEO UPDATES. Please sign up for the email marketing on the website profile.
The CEO sent an email out and posed the question on social media.
Those who wanted refunds could get them or exchange for something else. The majority wanted the time extended.
So we granted that choice.
One the next period ends, we will go to production if we meet the required minimum pre-orders, or they will be placed on our release schedule for the summer.
If you did not get the update via email, app or social media, please download the app and sign up for email updates. You can find all the info needed here.
If this process doesn't work for you please do not purchase.
The Price will increase after the pre-order ends.
To know what size you should order, please refer to our size chart and compare the Euro size in your current sneakers with our size chart.
This will give you a great comparison on if they "run true to size" which really means run like my other sneakers.
AFRICAN WINTER SOLSTICE:
Celebrating the African Goddess Mawu for Winter Solstice
Mawu is a West African Creation Goddess.
She sees into our souls with the Moon as Her eyes. As we sink into deep reflection at the close of the calendar year, Mawu gives us safe space and draws the shades of night to allow us quiet womb time.
Under Her canopy, we can take a much-needed respite. Each day, Mawu writes the destinies of humanity and passes them to Her son, Legba, to deliver. Look and listen for Her messages.
Take the information that She provides and prepare to seed your field anew at the Winter Solstice, just as Mawu set down the first seeds of creation. Her messages come from a myriad of sources: nature, the Sky (Her home), through strangers (it just might be Legba himself), and in dreams.
The winter solstice, hiemal solstice or hibernal solstice, also known as midwinter, occurs when one of the Earth's poles has its maximum tilt away from the Sun. It happens twice yearly, once in each hemisphere (Northern and Southern). For that hemisphere, the winter solstice is the day with the shortest period of daylight and longest night of the year, when the Sun is at its lowest daily maximum elevation in the sky.
Since prehistory, the winter solstice has been seen as a significant time of year in many cultures, and has been marked by festivals and rituals. It marked the symbolic death and rebirth of the Sun.
