SAMPLE ROOM

 

Eliminate Excess. Amplify Essence.

 
 

This is at the core of our minimalist philosophy.

The Sample Room cuts out the middleman (aka the '"excess") in order to allow us to deliver incredible shoes at incredible prices (the "essence").

Produced in small batches, Sample Room designs are handcrafted in Italy and feature the world's most comfortable soles.

SAMPLE ROOM FAQS

+ WHAT IS THE SAMPLE ROOM?

The Sample Room is our platform for delivering small batch, handmade production runs.

+ HOW DOES THE SAMPLE ROOM PROCESS WORK?

The Sample Room allows us to cut out the middleman in order to deliver to you an incredible shoe at an incredible work.

The Sample Room process works like this: the ICANCHU community will have a 2-4 week window in which to be able to pre-order a design at a wholesale price. As soon as this pre-order campaign is over, we will move into production. You will receive your designs within 6-8 weeks of the conclusion of the pre-order campaign.

+ WHY SHOULD I PARTICIPATE?

Outside of the satisfaction of helping to bring ICANCHU designs to life, you also get to lock in both a pre-sale discount as well as an actual order.

Because the Sample Room features small batch production runs, there is the chance that the designs sell out in the pre-order period. By being an early participant you can guarantee that you get your size and color.

+ WHEN AM I ACTUALLY BILLED?

Your card will be charged upon checkout.

+ WHAT IF I WANT TO EXCHANGE OR RETURN?

Sample Room designs are handcrafted limited editions. Because of this, exchanges might not always be possible as the inventory is not guaranteed. However, you can always return unworn, brand new shoes for a full refund.

+ CAN I JUST WAIT FOR THE DESIGN TO BE AVAILABLE AT RETAIL?

Absolutely. You just won’t be able to lock in the discounted pre-sale wholesale pricing. Keep in mind that there is also the chance that the design may sell out during the pre-order campaign.
