If you follow Memphis Fashion Group on Facebook, you may recall us mentioning ARCH shoes a few months ago. We did a photo shoot for their casual shoe line. The Memphis based shoe company focuses on running shoes and has just launched their Kickstarter campaign to fund the next production. Chris Burns, owner, has been operating and funding this dream of his for the past 4 years. He currently sells his shoes on Amazon along with other name brand footwear.
You may be surprised that Memphis is the home of small footwear company that has to compete with the popular guys but as you have been reading our articles, Memphis is the home of undiscovered talent, ambition, drive, innovation, and compassion. Chris Burns exemplifies all those aspects when it comes to his business, ARCH. I have come to know this business pretty well due to Burns’ transparency policy. He shares everything about ARCH with his customers and supporters from monthly sales and profits to the frustrations of running a small business. At anytime, you can visit his blog and learn about what ARCH has done and future plans.
Memphis, let’s support by backing ARCH on Kickstarter and get a pair of shoes and/or a tee for your daily run on the Greenline! There are several levels of support you can offer from $1 to $200. The goal is $3000.
Check out the ARCH blog if you wish to learn more about the company.
