Boot Illusions on the Shark Tank Show
|Queenie Davis on the Shark Tank Show|
At the time of the Shark Tank taping Goodrum and Davis had invested approx. $40k of their own money with a 50/50 partnership in the venture. The average boot illusion cost's $25 to make and retails for $79 per pair. Daymond John being the obvious Shark to invest in this invention
, decides to offer them $100k for a 75% of just the boot illusion technology. He wants to license it to other boot manufactures and collect a royalty from the invention. Daymond also says he will give them an additional 25 cents for each pair sold.
As far as current updates on the Success of the Boot Illusion Business, it was also just as challenging to find much information. In December 2012, Queenie came out with a new line of Boot Illusions according to her Facebook page but she has not updated it since. The twitter account also has not been updated since the Shark Tank Show aired last May, with the last message a re-tweet from Corcoran. And now I just watched a video with Queenie on YouTube featuring the new line of Boot Illusions for a Indigogo campaign that was posted a month ago? Unfortunately things are not adding up and that a deal with Barbara might have fell through. Hopefully someone out there knows more then I was able to find out and might like to share more information on this outcome.
The good news is the website is still up and it looks like you can still order the Boot Illusion directly from the site. It must be a good product because I also uncovered a website that wants you to believe you are on the Boot Illusions Official Site, but clearly it is not. The site uses a .CO for their domain, so be careful if you are trying to order directly from Queenie. Better yet, you can use the link below that goes directly to Queen Grace Shoes.
Good Luck Queenie, your enthusiasm is very contagious and we wish you only the Very Best!
