New England Footwear Launches Crowd Funding on Indiegogo

New England Footwear, the parent company of GoLite Footwear, is pioneering performance footwear made here in the U.S.A.

Under the banner of Buy a Pair. Change the Game. Make Footwear Here is the U.S.A. , Doug Clark the CEO and founder has decided to take his project to the people of America to raise awareness and funds for a state-of the-art “smart manufacturing” plant right here in New Hampshire.

After nearly 30 years of producing in Asia, NEF (New England Footwear) developed new techniques that allow for a better way to make innovative, high-quality footwear at a competitive price, at home.

In 2011, NEF won a prestigious Green Launching Pad Award from the University of New Hampshire.

The grant allowed NEF to explore technology ideas and manufacturing techniques that would exponentially increase the productivity of a production line, and remove 70% of the labor from the process currently used in conventional "cut, glue, and stitch" Asian factories.

After two years of innovating on designs, processes, and materials, we now know we can make the same or better shoe for less money - in the USA. And we're ready to take this novel approach to scale.

We believe we can make the same or better shoe for the same or better price- in the USA, not in Asia.

Our approach means less glue, less material, less waste, higher quality, and breakthrough designs never before seen by the consumer.
