Utah Crowd-Funding: Happy feet

This week’s Utah Crowd-Funding project is for people with cold feet and a need for comfort.

Salt Lake City entrepreneur/inventor Bryan LaBar had an idea when he was a student at Utah State University, during one of Utah’s coldest winters in years: Something to cover your feet that feel as comfortable as a pair of sweatpants.

The result: Lost Socks, slipper-socks attached to the cuffs of a pair of sweatpants — hidden inside until you need them.

LaBar has developed the prototype, and is raising money via Kickstarter to start manufacturing.

The campaign is seeking $16,000. The deadline is March 30. So far, LaBar has raised $3,213.

Benefits for donors range from a pair of the sweatpants (for a $20 pledge) to six pairs (for a $120 pledge).

If you have a crowd-funding project you’d like mentioned on The Cricket blog, email it to: spmeans@sltrib.com. Be sure to put "crowd funding" in the subject line.
