Crosskix - the sportiest, stylish, and most versatile footwear in the foam composite (EVA) footwear category!
CROSSKIX II - the "relaunch"!
Due to compliance issues with Kickstarter, our project was inactive for approximately 3 days. We believe this has seriously impacted our chances in reaching our goal and not to mention customer loyalty.
However, we are VERY excited that Kickstarter has allowed us to cancel this project and "RELAUNCH".
We plan to "cancel" this project in the next few days and RELAUNCH by the end of the month. We are currently working on the NEW campaign and have made some VERY attractive offers including our "EARLY BIRD" offers.
PLEASE STAY TUNED and if you're a current backer, you will be receiving UPDATES via email. If you're not a current backer, please check back often for updates on relaunch.
Upon cancellation of this project, your credit card will NOT be charged! The authorization will simply drop off.
DO NOT cancel your pledge as you may not receive email updates. But if you do cancel please check back often for updates.
GET TO THE RELAUNCH EARLY AND TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE EARLY BIRD PRICES!
Any questions or comments, please email us or post a comment.

What is CROSSKIX?
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).
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.
Creating a Culture.
Smart, Sexy, and Style conscious. We don't just want to sell shoes...we want to create a culture. Let your style speak in what you wear. Make a statement. Be proud. Look GOOD in everything you do!
How can I be part of the culture?
Support our campaign so we can go into production. Your support will pay for molds (sizes 3-13) and a production run so you can be the first to wear CROSSKIX.
If we can get to $150k, we will be able to ADD to the colorways (below) a 6th colorway (one of which you will vote on).
VOTE for your favorite colorway for a chance to purchase in the $500 reward offer.
100% RECYKIX (recycling program)
Don't throw away your used or unwanted CROSSKIX!
Return 'em to us and we'll use for our RECY-KIX program. In return, we'll offer a 15% DISCOUNT on your next pair of CROSSKIX!
Do we know what we're doing?
Absolutely! 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.
Our commitment is our promise to deliver a high quality functional product. We've studied the competition, improved the flaws, designed based on demand, and all the while maintaining an attractive style.
About the shoe.
Crosskix are made with the highest EVA (ethylene 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.
What sizes do we offer?

RISKS and CHALLENGES.
We've spent over $75k to design and redesign, produce and reproduce samples, and test and retest prototypes....so we've already made the corrections and improvements to make sure that Crosskix are produced with the highest quality and workmanship.
Our team consists of highly experienced Industrial Designers & Engineers, x-CEO's of highly successful footwear companies, and serial Entrepreneurs that have spent countless hours perfecting the first Crosskix shoe. All we need now is to produce molds for each size....this is where we need your assistance.
Your pledges and support is GREATLY APPRECIATED...THANK YOU!!
Yes. You will be notified (at end of successful campaign), and you will be able to specify a size for each colorway that you purchase.
3-13 There is a link "SIZE CHART" under "What sizes do we offer". You can review the FIT and size chart for both women and men.
Upon a successful campaign, every backer will be notified to respond with sizes for their order. It would be too complicated to add choices of sizes to each reward because of the number of color choices available.
CROSSKIX sizes actually run True to Size which means that you if normally wear a size 9 (for example), that would the size to order. As we get closer to the end of the campaign, we will post a more detailed SIZE CHART (and possibly a video) explaining how to select the correct size for your feet.
CROSSKIX are made in MEDIUM width which is what we call a "relaxed" fit. This basically means that it is normal to have some space in both sides of the front part of the foot as well as the top. Please see the "SIZE CHART" link above for a more detailed explanation.
Kickstarter doesn't allow us to edit Canadian shipping charges. They consider all orders outside of US "international". However, we can credit your account for the extra charge.
