About this project
The Beginnings: Where ReKixx® has had a fair start as a unique sneaker company, pushing awareness and sustainability, it is time to emerge. This time, it's about the sneakers!
Limited Edition: "Emerge" is a limited edition Kickstarter special that with your support will take ReKixx from a niche eco-friendly brand to the mainstream. The design is a creation from previous success on Kickstarter and a "fan" favorite. Emerge in "retro" black featuring the ReKixx signature green recycling pattern is positioned for mass market appeal.
Comfort & Construction: With 1,200+ pairs of the 1st Collection being worn today, ReKixx have been said to be, "sooo comfy, people ask me about my sneaks every time I wear them, easy to break-in, soft, form fitting, comfortable like Uggs, and true to size." Construction is with a minimalist approach to design and use of materials, however, there has been no sacrifice in comfort. ReKixx are light weight with a flat sole and sturdy rubber bottom that give a good walking grip. The uppers are a breathable fabric that look like canvas. There is a cushy padded form-fitted insole, a soft inner lining, and the toe box, with an outer rubber cap, gives ample room up front. ReKixx, where they are certainly a one-of-a-kind earth-friendly comfortable shoe, are made equally to earn a popular distinction among the entire casual footwear market.
Sizing: ReKixx are a universal fit for men and women, available in 9 sizes, starting at Youth-4/Women's-6 to Men's-12/Women's-14, whole sizes only. They are said to be "true to size" and a touch on the wider side. If you are a half size, you should round up. ***No worries if you order the wrong size, we will exchange your pair as long as you send them back in new & unused condition with the original packaging.

Buy and Promote: Emerge, only on Kickstarter, at a special price of $48.00 (buy first at $44.00) is ready for your purchase. Click the "pledge" box on the right to buy your pair or two, and please share this link with your friends. Fact is, without your help to buy and promote, ReKixx could be out of luck (oh no!!). Note- I will get your size and shipping info later.
The Brand: ReKixx® is a brand that not only represents design & fashion, but also awareness & sustainability. ReKixx cool sneakers 100% recyclable are the world’s first and only completely Landfill-Free Sneakers™. Our mission is to deliver an enjoyable sneaker that advocates and initiates improvements in recycling and eco-smart behaviors with sponsorship, education, and research. With more than 300 million pairs of shoes thrown away last year in the U.S. alone (soles4souls*org), ReKixx is changing the way we think about sneakers AND green living. ReKixx are Sneakers with a Purpose™.
Recyclability: A sneaker that is truly landfill-free. With extensive research, several material trials, and lab tests complete, ReKixx are the only sneakers that all parts together can go back into the recycling process for zero-landfill impact. When your worn and beaten ReKixx sneakers have absolutely no kick left, send them back to us where we can guarantee your ReKixx will in fact remain completely Landfill-Free Sneakers. We call it HONEST & TRUE RECYCLABILITY. Upon receipt, with our most educated recycling processing partners, your old ReKixx, from laces to sole, will be grind-ed, melted, and pelletized to be "ReKixx-ed” into new products and materials, including the potential to make a new pair of ReKixx (I have proven the concept, just need time and money for development). PLUS for your good deed, you will receive a discount off your next purchase of ReKixx.
Thank You: From the entire ReKixx family, thank you in advance for your support. Thank you for helping ReKixx EMERGE to truly become Sneakers with a Purpose!!

Risks and challenges
It is with confidence, experience, and excitement that I am glad to reach out here with this Kickstarter special.
For those of you who know ReKixx previously as "ReMyxx" from my successful 2012 Kickstarter campaign and or appearing on the ABC business reality TV show Shark Tank, I say hello again and if you missed getting your ReKixx the first time this is the deal to take!!
As I am still working to get ReKixx off the ground, I am counting on this breakout offer to hit the next level in the sneaker industry. In reaching my goal here, I will: 1) deliver you your first or second pair, 2) reach retailers for placements where back-up stock is necessary, and 3) capitalize on celebrity interest and brand building opportunities. I expect no problem delivering on this Kickstarter limited campaign (minor delays/issues aside) where I have proven experience, materials waiting, and molds complete. Plus you know I will keep all informed.
Ultimately, where I have proven ReKixx are likeable sneakers and a brand of interest, I ask that you buy and promote to keep the ReKixx effort going. It is only together we can roll-out the ReKixx message about awareness and sustainability, not to mention the cool sneakers.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
