True Gault, a NYC-based 3-D imaging shoe brand, raised an undisclosed amount of funding.
Venture capitalist Tim Draper made the investment via an equity crowdfunding campaign launched by the company through Republic.
Led by CEO & Founder Sandra Gault, True Gault is a 3-D imaging shoe brand that uses a series of photos from an individual’s iPhone to create custom women’s shoes, guaranteed to fit precisely. It uses 3D imaging software and patent-pending fit formula to create custom-fit shoes, hand made in Spain. A customer takes three pictures of each foot via the True Gault iPhone app, and the smart technology generates her unique size and a 3D model of each foot. They can customize their shoes from a selection of 20+ styles, 40+ leathers colors, and two heel heights (2” or 4” at present).
The custom pair of heels, made to order, are delivered in less than four weeks and backed by a 100% Fit Guarantee.
The company recently announced that ELLE Magazine Editor in Chief and Project Runway judge Nina Garcia joined the team as an Advisor and was invited to join the Google Accelerated Growth Program.
