The result is a unique and functional product that has revolutionized the way people take care of their shoes.

The Outcome

EquerryShine was launched on Amazon and was met with great enthusiasm by customers around the world. The success of the product is a testament to the power of innovative thinking and collaboration in creating a high-quality and functional product.

The Story

The idea for the Equerry Shoe Polisher was born out of the collaboration between two brothers, Anthony and Charles. Anthony is a chef, and Charles is a serial inventor who has always been passionate about developing innovative products that solve everyday problems.

One day, preparing for a family wedding, Charles was polishing his shoes and became frustrated with the time-consuming and messy process. He knew there had to be a better way to get a perfect shine on his shoes without all the mess and hassle. So, he approached his brother Anthony with the idea of creating an electric shoe polisher that would make the process quick and easy.

Charles and Anthony first worked with another design company who produced some images of how the product might look but without any detailed consideration for the functionality of the product. After encountering frustration and disillusionment, they approached Design2Market (D2M) for help. The team at D2M took a pragmatic approach and produced a quick proof of concept prototype to check essential elements such as motor torque, power requirement, and battery life. D2M’s extensive workshops allowed them to quickly carry out this type of proof of concept prototyping, ensuring that the technical side of the product was proven before moving on to detailed 3D CAD models, high-fidelity prototypes, and producing the necessary details and images for the successful Kickstarter campaign.

The final design of the Equerry Shoe Polisher is a sleek and stylish product that can polish shoes quickly and easily. The product is lightweight, compact, and portable, making it perfect for use at home, in the office, or on the go – exactly what Charles and Anthony intended from the outset!
