Let us introduce you to our mates at Bared!
As a consumer, the brands that stand out to me are those who have invested heavily in enhancing their customer experience – not just in the store but online as well. With COVID throwing a spanner in the works for so many industries, retail companies have been challenged to get creative in their marketing and online presence, and Bared is a stand out in that category.
They’re an Aussie-grown business that saw a gap in the market and went for it. Ten-plus years on and they’ve filled that gap (and then some) and now are expanding into global markets.
But it’s more than that, that really got me. It’s the culture, the passion, the flair, the innovation, the ‘teamness’ (yes, that is a word, I don’t care what Grammarly says) that just oozed from this company which really resonated with me. I reckon it will resonate with you, too.
About Bared Footwear
Bared is one of Australia’s start-up good-news stories. Founded by husband and wife team Andrew and Anna Baird twelve years ago, the dream was to deliver quality, orthotic-friendly shoes to Australia at great prices. The business is founder-led and has recently upgraded its tech stack to a headless Shopify Plus store. The brand has just launched its first marketplace partnership with The Iconic, and will be launching its US site in the coming weeks.
Bared has grown exceptionally over the past few years, firmly positioning them as one of the top online shoe retailers.
