$14.95 x 500,000 = $7,475,000…. hell yeah to a trio Whistler locals who had a crazy idea for a ski product and it caught fire. Gogglesoc is fully aware their product might seem a bit goofy (their about page starts with the question “but… why?”) but obviously there’s something to it. SBG Online reports lens protection product has sold half a million units since its inception in 2016:
“Our priorities remain the same as they did when we started out: to provide a simple product that merges function with self-expression at an approachable price point that keeps the planet in mind. We are more committed than ever to solidify the gogglesoc as a must-have ski accessory and household name in the ski industry.We’re celebrating these milestones and looking forward to a future filled with more growth, connection, adventure and giving back.”-Gogglesoc Co-Founder Josh Gray
If you have an idea for a ski invention and you’ve been sitting on your hands for years hopefully this will give you the inspiration to see it through. Good luck!
