Industry-wide EVA shortages have resulted in a delay in the shipment of the EVA resins used to make the sneaker outsoles. Due to these supply chain issues, the Korean factory that makes our customized EVA resins is still unable to provide us with a manufacturing timeline. They have advised us that they have a sizeable backlog of orders and that larger orders will be processed first as the raw materials become available. In an attempt to expedite things, we have increased our order from 2,000 kg to 10,000 kg.
Based on the information that we have now, the factory will advise us one month before our EVA's production date. They will ship the order on the following business day, and it will take 30 days by sea and land to arrive at our outsole factory in Mexico. We have looked into shipping a quantity of the EVA by air, but it is illegal to do so.
Production of the sneakers will begin as soon as the EVA arrives at the outsole factory. It will take one to two weeks to make all of the sneakers ordered.
No supply chain issues are affecting the other footwear components.
We will provide additional updates as we learn more.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.

We will be sending you an email with a Backerkit survey shortly. The Survey contains questions relating to your BioPods sneaker and Add-on preferences (size and colors).
Many have asked for additional pictures of the various models and color options. You can now view these on the Custom Size Configurator page: https://stimsoles.com
Please visit this page before starting the Survey to get your Custom Size Code and note your preferred Sneaker model(s) and color scheme(s). There will also be a link to this page in the Backerkit Survey.
Please note: The Custom Size Code produced by the Configurator must be input into the Survey. The Sneaker Model/Color selections are also made in the Survey. This information is NOT collected from the Custom Size Configurator page.
Thank you for your support.

THANK YOU for taking part in our BioPods Sneaker campaign!
We are now working on integration of a Foot Measurement SKU system with the Model and Color Selection process. Ultimately, this integrated system will produce a final SKU number that encodes all the information (your size/model/colour) for each pair of sneakers.
All systems are go with prototypes working as intended. We’re excited to make the world’s first truly integrated foot-friendly shoe a reality and are grateful for your support! Updates will follow as all the pieces continue to fit into place.
