Why Kickstarter?

Finding shoes has been a lifelong struggle for founder Laura Oden. She has had lymphedema for almost 40 years. Edema, diabetes, pregnancy, arthritis and a host of other conditions can cause one or both feet to swell. Turns out millions of women experience this struggle daily, and it’s time to do something about it.

We turned to Kickstarter because we saw ourselves on the leading edge of something that could impact millions of lives all over the world. We believe Pandere shoes will restore dignity, comfort and mobility to people with hard-to-fit feet. We’ve heard the stories and silent struggles of women all around the world with this problem. We decided it was time to give them a voice, and let them be heard.
