It is a Thursday, February 9, 2017 at Stocked Studios in Ballard. Julie is packing up and compiling shipments of mustard, pickles, olives, raw honey, peanut butters, blueberry items, infused oils and hot sauce. All of the products are locally made in Washington and distributed to shops around town. Callahan walks in with a load of products he picked up after doing his deliveries all morning. Austin is writing the next blog post for CloudLine with his favorite recipe for backpacking pad thai. Oliver is coding an algorithm to perfect his design for Prevolve’s BioRunners, a custom fit, 3D printed athletic shoe. Bryan just finished having a meeting with Casey from Sound Kombucha downstairs about home deliveries of basement brewed no sugar added kombucha. Krista is in the kitchen cooking up a delicious smelling meal to photograph with the newest Mustard & Co. creation, Blueberry Mustard.
Oliver says hey to Austin when he gets back from lunch.
“What’s up dude, how was your lunch?”
Austin replies, “Not bad.”
“Hey I just had an idea, you make socks, I make shoes…will you make me a custom sock for my running shoes?” Said Oliver.
“Sure dude, that’s a great idea."
“Let’s have Krista design the label and I’ll think about what colors I want. I think we should have the Prevolve logo and name on the socks and give them away to the first 50 customers for free."
“Good idea Oli, I’ll start on the design and you pick the colors so we can order the wool.”
CloudLine makes merino wool socks in the USA and they come with a 100% guarantee. My favorite thing about the socks is that the seam where the wool is sewn together doesn’t run down the tip of your toes, instead they have two seams that run on the sides of my feet giving a snug and comfortable fit. I also love that wool socks don’t smell!! It’s a perfect combination with the Prevolve shoes that are made from a flexible plastic material called TPU. Since the shoes are made entirely from the TPU, no fabric to collect smells, they are odor free, hypoallergenic and easy to clean. Just put your BioRunners through the dishwasher or wash them in the sink with a bit of soap and water. It doesn’t get much easier than that.
Come get a free foot scan at the Prevolve office in Ballard and be one of the first people to own a pair of custom fit, 3D printed shoes. Make an appointment online at our website: pre-volve.com. Make sure to check out our friends at Cloudlineapparel.com and grab a pair of socks or two or three.
The story will continue for Prevolve and CloudLine as their companies grow, but it all began in the Stocked Studio’s co-working space at 4501 Shilshole Ave NW. A place for startups and small businesses to build a foundation and grow into themselves.
