THE STORY

Ropix started with the idea to create the very best shoe for jump rope. Whether you are an athlete working on your stamina and endurance, a casual fitness minded gym member or an actual competitor in the sport of jump rope you will benefit from wearing Ropix. It is a sports specific shoe such as spin shoes, running shoes, tennis shoes and skateboard shoes. They each have a purpose, to improve and enhance your experience. With hundreds of pairs on the feet of jumpers worldwide, Ropix is a proven and well appreciated sports shoe.

What makes Ropix special is both the design and materials.

WHEN JUMPING ROPE WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM A SHOE?

  • It should be lightweight.
  • The sole should be smooth with no obstructions to catch the rope
  • Lateral grooves to direct rope underpass
  • Traction and slip resisant
  • The sole should be firm but with a softer cushioned area under the ball of the foot to dampen impact - Duel density
  • An extra insert under the ball of the foot that provides both cushioning and rebound qualities

KICK START SO YOU CAN JUMP!

Why are we coming to kickstarter ?

Well, after producing the prototypes and a small inventory the factory went bankrupt taking with it our very expensive sole molds. No chance in retrieving them we will have to re-produce them. Fortunately we have found a new partner that will produce our shoes in the quantities needed and the quality we demand. Now all we need is our new molds to continue our goal in providing the best footwear possible for every jump rope enthusiast everywhere! We are committed to the growth of the sport and to one of the best health improving exercises known. That is why we are asking you to jump start our Kick Starter! Your pledges will go directly to the production of the molds so we can produce the next collection.

TESTIMONIALS:

"This is the right shoe for the sport of jump rope, and any inspiring rope jumper, including recreational or fitness oriented jumpers." -  2x Guinness world record holder and National Master's Jump Rope champion.  

- Ken Solis M.D.

"The Ropix Aero's are fantastic !" - Dr. Steven Lamm known to millions as the house doctor on The View and has been seen on Oprah, Lifetime Today, The Today Show Live, and LX New York. He has authored several books, including bestseller Thinner at Last and his latest book, The Hardness Factor.

The shoes are fantastic! They have saved my knees! I had a slight fracture in my knee after an injury. I was concerned I would never be able to jump rope again. As an actor, it's important for me to stay in shape. My workout of choice is jumping rope. Thanks to your awesome shoes after my knee recovered I was able to continue jumping without stiffness and aching. I actually tried jumping with my other shoes and because they don't have the added cushion in the ball of the foot, they made my knees hurt. Thanks! Dan Sachoff  -Actor

I received the shoes and they fit perfectly. I took them for a spin today and they were incredible. Very much as advertised. The shape of the shoe basically adjusts your foot positioning so that you are already on the balls of your feet and the cushioning absorbs the shock of jumping so that even when jumping on a surface as hard as urban concrete it feels like you're bouncing off a gym mat. - Rajath Vikram

They are perfect. Great. Love them!! - Keisher “Fire” McLeod-Wells - four-time Golden Gloves champion and two-time World Champion amateur boxer, ranked #2 nationally by USA Boxing,

DEVELOPMENT AND  TESTING

Since 2011 we have been developing and testing Ropix with every type of jumper. As the founder I was the first to wear test our product and I attempted to put them through the most rigorous uses possible. It was only then that we had all other jumpers wear Ropix. Casual jumpers, double dutch, competitive and cross fit jumpers have all participated in the process and development of what we feel is the best shoe for jump rope.

Risks and challenges

The initial feedback has been amazingly positive in terms of fit and function. Having to start with a new manufacturer the risk is achieving the same results. However we have worked very closely with our new manufacturer and feel confident that the new production will only improve the new collection.
