Late For The WEDDING?! ūüė≤

Have you ever been late for something and had to run to get there in time? What about your own wedding?! In our newest video, Take Flight pro Rabotenko Valentin is late, and the bride is not happy. But he is wearing our 1.0 Parkour shoes so he takes off running. Click below to watch and see if he makes it in time and how the bride responds when he gets there.

In this video, Valentin is wearing our 1.0 Parkour shoes. We only have 3 sizes available in those (the rest have sold out). However, our newest Parkour & Freerunning shoes, the Stealth Ultra, are better than ever. We took everything we learned from the 1.0s and the Ultras to make a shoe that you will love. Click below to check them out.

Where are my shoes?! ūüė©

People keep asking us about our Stealth Ultra shoes! “Where are they?” people keep saying. We’ve posted the answer in our social media, but perhaps we haven’t made it clear enough in our emails. That’s what this email is for.

The Stealth Ultras (shown below) are our new Parkour and Freerunning shoes, and for months we have been announcing¬†them “scheduled to ship worldwide on June 28th.” However, we missed this date big time.¬†Production took us waaaay longer than expected with multiple delays taking place all because of our heightened focus on quality. We came across multiple decisions that delayed our production such as improving materials and rejecting shoes that didn’t meet our quality standards. Even scheduling factory time was a tricky aspect because we chose a more reputable factory (with less availability) over a less reputable¬†factory (that was immediately available to produce).

Every time we came across a difficult decision we had the same question: do we press through this issue in order to make sure the shoes ship on June 28th? Or do we take extra time to make sure the shoes¬†exceed expectations.” We’ve chosen “exceed expectations” every time.

As a result, the Stealth Ultras are now set to ship on August 15th… we think!¬†It could even be a week after that¬† We are in the final stretch with most of the shoes already made. However, since we don’t own the factory, we are subject to their availability, and the last pairs are in limbo for a final few¬†days.

A 4-month project to relaunch the Ultras has turned into a full year project of making a new shoe from the ground up. The result is a shoe that we think will blow you away. It has taken us way longer than expected, but we think it will be worth the wait because these shoes are something special.

We stand behind our products 100% knowing that sometimes that focus leads us to sacrifice timeliness for quality. For better or for worse (and we think better) that’s exactly what we’ve done with the Stealth Ultras. Thank you for your trust, patience, and loyalty throughout this time

If you’re a Take Flight faithful, we have a bit more information for you. As you probably know, we recently produced a Kickstarter campaign to fund the production of the Ultra shoe. Unfortunately, we didn’t reach our funding need. As disappointing as this was, what we realized is unlike most brands in the Parkour world, we aren’t a brand that waits. We believe in what we are doing, we believe in our products, we believe in who we are, and we move ahead with that conviction. It’s just like the movement in Parkour. You know and you advance. That’s why Take Flight is here today, and that’s one of things that separates us from other Parkour brands.

With this is mind, after the failed Kickstarter campaign we reorganized some things and found a way to launch the shoe anyway. We had to push back the launch date, but other than that everything is exactly the same! Now the Ultra will officially launch in August – no ifs or maybes. August is the time. That’s why anyone worldwide can now order the Ultra through our website.

Are you excited? We are. And most importantly, we’re confident. Just like a Traceur who knows what he can do and does it, that’s who we are and that’s the story of the Ultra. It makes sense, doesn’t it? After all, we are Traceurs.
