Hi everyone, I'm the co-founder of Markhor and happy to answer any question you may have. We're excited to be taking pre-orders of our shoes. I briefly wanted to explain what makes Markhor shoes better, much better from the rest: 1. QUALITY – Markhor quality is the main thing that separates us from all the low/high priced shoes made in Italy, China or India. The quality of our leather, materials, interaction and the people we work with. 2. DESIGN – We are obsessed with creating the new from the old, our design inspiration combines modern style hardwares, typography and architecture. Minimal is the design of choice for us. 3. CRAFTSMANSHIP – Not all handmade shoes are created equal. Our shoes are made by local craftsmen who have decades of shoe-making experience, and our relationship with them goes beyond shoemaking. Unlike most of the formal shoes, our shoes are light-weight and super comfortable. I will be around all day so feel free to ask anything! Thanks @adii for the submission!

@waqasaday great shoes! I'm curious what animal (or animals) the leather comes from. Also, do you have a "litmus shoe," that compares well in size? I wear half and sometimes full size differences between brands so it would be great to know which brand is the best proxy for the sizing of your shoes to avoid exchanges.

@radiofreejohn Hey John, we use Cow Calf Crust and Cow Crust leather. We don't have a litmus shoes. After the campaign ends we'll send you a guide and brief survey to get information on shoe sizing. That will help us determine your feet measurement and we'll get you a pair accordingly. The survey also includes a question on what different shoe sizes you wear across existing brands. Thank you John, Cheers!

The Kickstarter campaign was funded in the first 22 hours and the likes of Seth Godin has backed it & written about them. I absolutely love two things about Markhor: 1) the shoes itself; and 2) how their team have hustled to build this business all the way from Pakistan.

Waoo - Amazing Crafting. We all buy shoes on regular basis however this is an experience. I am very impressed by the quality of Production despite being from Pakistan. Love the mission !

@asranadeem Hi Asra, unfortunately not at the moment. Currently we are focused on just the men shoes and Chappals. Sorry!

@waqasaday Love the idea and the building of a brand. Technical shoe question, are the soles Goodyear welted?

@andrewrlin Nope, Markhor shoes are Solid Blake construction. I encourage you check out 'goodyear vs blake construction on Google.' A Blake welt is just as good, even better as any premium Goodyear welt, though it can not be re-soled. Thanks for asking!
