ugg shop in london Krazee Boots inventor hopes retail stores could be next step for her product
I have a love for boots a passion for boots and wanted to be able to change the look of a boot, and add an accessory to your outfit, without spending a lot of money, said Frost, who lives in Mentor on the Lake.
Her trademarked Krazee Boots, made of a cotton spandex blend, are coverings that slip on like a sock, over a pair of boots.
We have 20 different varieties and styles, so you re able to take a boot and dress it up or dress it down and add pizzazz to your outfit, Frost said.
Aiming to offer a product that s low maintenance as well as fun, the one size fits all Krazee Boots are machine washable and only require air drying.
Any woman who loves boots loves this idea, Frost said. I ve gotten a lot of great feedback.
The idea to invent Krazee Boots popped into Frost s mind after she bought a rather colorful pair of boots at a consignment shop.
Everybody was saying to me, I love those, where did you get them? I want a pair. That gave me an idea to make a boot pant,
as I call it, that could be changeable to accessorize and add flair to your outfit without breaking the bank and spending a lot of money.
With a product concept in mind, Frost sought out talented local people to help manufacture and market the product.
Her team includes Cindy Noble of Mentor, a seamstress who produces each pair of Krazee Boots on her sewing machine; and Frost s cousins, Joey White of Concord Township and Toni Spring of Eastlake. White has used her expertise in promotions to help boost Krazee Boots profile, while Spring is a graphic artist who s created artwork and designed advertisements for Frost s venture.
Frost said she also gained valuable insight on how to start and grow a business from Kip Marlow of Willoughby. Marlow, a retired business owner, is a passionate advocate for entrepreneurship who has counseled many fledgling entrepreneurs in Northeast Ohio.
Kip s my right hand man, Frost said. He s a great mentor and great person to have on my side.
As for her long term goal, Frost said she hopes Krazee Boots will become known as an innovative product in the footwear industry perhaps something along the lines of the UGG brand of boots, shoes and slippers.
I m sure people will get the idea (to produce something similar to Krazee Boots) and possibly catch onto it, but I want to be the first out there with the best quality and the best product, and I d like to see it in retail stores,
