What is CROSSKIX?
A SUPERIOR alternative in soft foam composite (EVA) footwear and a Hybrid footwear for multiple uses. It is by far the most technical shoe in the EVA footwear category.
"CROSS" is the short term for "crossover" and "KIX" is for "kicks" which is slang for shoes (a term typically used by young adults).
CHOOSE from 8 STOCK COLORWAYS
What makes CROSSKIX different from the competition?
Below is a chart showing the advantages of CROSSKIX as compared to the one brand that dominates this category. We wanted to fill the void in this category for a more Sportier shoe that can be used in so many more ways than just a slip-on. Please review below.
- multiple uses - leisure, recreation, casual, and work
- stylish AIR VENTS throughout to keep your feet cool & dry
- soft and contour footbed for a comfortable fit
- strategically located water vents for use IN and OUT of the water
- PRE and POST foot recovery features (after playing sports)
- EASY cleaning
- 100% RECYCLABLE - for playgrounds, track & field, basketball courts, etc.
- fashion forward styling
CROSSKIX are made with separate Upper and Outsole components which allow for greater flexibility and a "real" shoe feel.
Let's face it....there is really ONLY one brand out there that dominates the EVA (soft foam composite) footwear category (as you have seen in the video). We all know who that is. But if you're like MANY other folks, you've probably have said to yourself..."they're comfortable, but I wouldn't be caught with them on!"
So, our goal was to design a shoe that EVERYONE can PROUDLY wear for multiple uses and of course...look GOOD while doing it. We believe there's definitely a void in this category for a more sportier, stylish, and functional shoe. So, we've spent over 4 years designing, redesigning, testing, retesting, producing sample after sample and have finally come up with a shoe that all men, women, and kids just can't wait to get their feet into. Our focus groups have unanimously voted on what you see.
We're committed to producing top quality footwear for the demanding consumer that cares about price, style, and functionality. We let YOU decide what you want in a multi-purpose athletic shoe.
About the shoe.
Crosskix are made with the highest grade of EVA (ethylyn vinyl acetate) material. It is basically a soft foam composite that is commonly used as midsoles in running and basketball shoes. Most people can identify the material simply by the brand c***s (we prefer not to be mentioned in the same breath simply because our shoe is much more superior in the way it is constructed, function and quality).
They are VERY lightweight (only 7.5oz for size 11). The outsole and uppers are SEPARATE molds (not like the competition that is made with just ONE mold). This allows the shoe greater flexibility and to wear like a fabric made shoe.
The shoe also has stylish air vents that allow your feet to stay dry and cool. These same vents also act as drain holes for water to exit the shoe. This means that you can wear your Crosskix while washing your car, walking on the beach, or at the swimming pool. There are specially placed drain holes located in the heel of the footbed that allows water to flow outside of the shoe quickly and easily.
We have been in the athletic apparel industry over 10 years and in footwear for over 4. Collectively, our team has over 30 years in footwear design and manufacturing. During the 4 years, we've actually developed 3 other designs and samples. All of which did not make the cut for design but more importantly - functionality.
What is the money being used for?
All of the funds raised will be used to produce the MOLDS for sizes 3-13 and of course, our opening order. We also will use part of the funds to finalize packaging options.
