  • ARCH Consultation | Allow me to do a thorough analysis of your marketing efforts to move you in the direction of attaining your business goals. Now more than ever it’s getting harder to reach your intended clients. This is a multichannel world and the old and new ways of marketing are becoming less efficient.

  • ARCH x Kickstarter | After operating the footwear company for 5 years out of my own pocket I ran a successful Kickstarter campaign for my third running shoe.
  • ARCH Investment | ARCH Investment is no longer accepting clients. The program was successful in utilizing footwear as an investment. It was a great program. ARCH will begin considering investments as the growth of the website reaches 100,000 Unique Visitors per month.

    Christopher D. Burns LOL, nah, I actually like NB. Enough so that I design my last shoe after their models. The S.E.A.L. New Balance resold for over 300 per pair and some models still go for that much. This issue is a sign of the times. Everything is taken out of context now.

    -Question: Do you/did you have any problems from NB by using their models?

    • Not a single issue. Once I realized that it didn’t make sense for me as a small company on a bootstrap budget to try and create a shoe from the ground up, I didn’t even try it anymore. I knew that when I made Sho-Shot and I used the And1 outsole on that shoe I saved a ton of money on that release. As long as the outsole logo is removed then there isn’t an issue. BUTTTTTT you have to be very careful. Using a “free” outsole can lead to infringement issues so be careful if you decide to do it. We do live in a litigious society.
