The Haitian Community showed their support not just in likes and comments but purchases.

Prior to the November 1st launch DE distributed a press release targeting fashion, and Haitian culture writers, social media influencers. The day of the launch a reminder and follow-up pitches went out including never before seen photos of the shoe. The results? The story was picked up by 5 different outlets and garnered countless reposts on social media.

Screenshots coming soon!

Strong community engagement and tapping into folks who are influential offline truly works, go figure :).
