It may be a little cliché but today really is a new day for Pakems. Today, we launch our NEW website AND we launch our NEW product line, The Pakems Extreme, AND we launch our NEW Pakems Cortina boot AND we get our NEW kid’s line of shoes. With all the NEWs, how can it be anything but a new day for Pakems. I have to admit, I am really excited about all of the NEW things Pakems has going. In addition to the new products we are launching and the launch of our brand new website, we have a lot of other “News” too.
Pakems recently came in second out of several Colorado products at a Denver Startup Week contest for new products. We were also named as a contender for the Wright Award, formerly called the S|I Entrepreneur Award put on by the organization, Something Independent. And in August, during the tradeshow, Outdoor Retailer, Pakems picked up a Day 2 Editors Choice Award from Mountaineering Weekly.
All the acknowledgement of Pakems, our products and our company, has me both excited and humbled at the same time. I knew when I came up with the concept of Pakems, a lightweight packable shoe, it was a great idea, but all of the positive feedback we have received has made me realize so many people are looking for a better way to Relax Happy.
Of course, our biggest news is right here, our NEW website. We’ve worked long and hard over the past several months, getting prepared to launch our new site in conjunction with the start of a new winter season (winter is our cornerstone season). We have a new store where you can order our new products. We have a new Journey page, where you can learn more about us, who we are and where we’re going. We launched a new integrated Social Media page, where we can all keep in touch with each other through our favorite apps. And we want to hear from you in our Play Hard and Relax Happy sections. We wanted an integrated forum where people can not only share their Pakems experience, but can also share their active lifestyle experiences as well. What do you do to Play Hard and where do you like to Relax Happy?
So, as we move into our NEW season and we get the chance to share with you all of our NEW exciting products, we couldn’t be happier with the direction we are headed. I encourage you to step into your intentions, be kind and find something NEW in your day to celebrate.
