Affordable custom slides might be the next ‘it’ item in Neiman Marcus holiday book.
Shark Tank alum ISlide continues to ride the customization wave. The Boston-based company, which got its start through the online direct-to-consumer channel, announced Friday new online distribution deals with Neiman Marcus, Lids, Urban Outfitters and Fanatics.
Each deal adds custom slide designs to each individual online retailer, with a majority being produced and drop-shipped on an individual basis from ISlide’s headquarters.
“We are thrilled to introduce our e-commerce clients to ISlide. ISlide is revolutionizing the footwear industry with their on-demand customization capabilities. Their in-house warehousing, production and shipping helps us deliver product that is highly unique and accessibly priced within days of a customer order,” said Jim Gold, Neiman Marcus president.
ISlides is in growth mode. The company recently inked deals with the NBA and Nickelodeon. Founder Justin Kittredge estimates that the addition of these retail channels will push ISlide’s sales growth path to surpass over 300 percent since 2015 and could bring in millions of dollars in sales in the first year alone.
