I don't need a cane, but if I did, I would absolutely think about buying one of these.

Love the colors. Much cooler than the cane I sometimes have to use, but this doesn't say how long they are and $135 is pricey!

In my opinion, these are too lightweight. Canes have weight for a reason, it helps to steady the gait.

$135 per cane???? If so, know that I live with somebody who will have me spending thousands on canes per year. I would not even buy him one, for the fear that he would lose it. Please see what you can do about adjusting the price downward on this lovely item.

If you're in the market for a cane, these are a nice change of pace. But, at this price point, there is unique competition out there which rivals this style.

this seems strange for your website. I would not pay $135 for a cane no matter how pretty. Maybe Dr. House?

Pricey...the handle is not large enough for a good grasp on it. The lightweight shaft is too light to support much weight.

Idea is fun and possible to take the idea further with designs and make something that folks tend to not want to use into something that allows personal expression and fun. Not bad for th aging baby boomers, but I would also tend not to buy based on the price -- especially when they are so plain. Make them cheaper and/or make them more special.

I love the colors, but do not like the mix of the wood with the metal. They could use a rainbow one too!! Oh...... and I agree that the price is really high.

Great design. If I need a cane at least I won't feel like I should be wearing a top hat and spats.
