About

ReKixx, with its first successful launch on Kickstarter (delivered January 2013), is back with new happening introductions for Spring 2014.

The Brand & Mission: ReKixx cool sneakers 100% recyclable are the world’s first and only completely Landfill-Free Sneakers™. ReKixx is a brand that not only represents design and fashion, but also awareness and sustainability. 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.

The Sneakers: ReKixx are casual comfortable lifestyle sneakers, in strong colors with clever designs for all types, ages, and genders. They are manufactured using a unique mix of materials that look and feel like canvas and rubber but are made entirely from a propriety blend of lab certified recyclable materials. With the recycling symbol prominently displayed on the uppers and the bottom sole, you can show the world that you choose to walk the green way supporting eco-friendly behaviors for a sustainable future. It also tells the collection agencies and recycling processors what they can do with worn out ReKixx to give them a second life. ReKixx are Sneakers with a Purpose™.

2014 Spring Introductions:

  • Green Valor, the first ReKixx high-top!
  • Sweet Mary-Jane, the first ReKixx mary-jane!
  • Convertible Black, the first ReKixx slip-on!
  • Message in Green, first release new design ReKixx!
  • Retro Black, first release new design ReKixx!
  • Classic Rock, first release new design ReKixx!

Comfort & Construction: With 1,000+ 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 insole, a soft inner lining, and the toe box, with an outer rubber cap, gives ample room for the toes. 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, whole sizes only, at this time. 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 with no problem. Sizes for the styles called, Green Valor, Convertible Black, Message in Green, Classic Rock, and Retro Black range from Youth 4 = Women's 6 to Men's 12 = Women's 14. Sweet Mary-Jane starts at Youth 1 running to Women's 9. 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.

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 grinded, 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.

NOTE- As the ReKixx effort grows and works to achieve its mission, to educate and initiate improvements in recycling, it is the goal that your "trashed" ReKixx sneakers will be accepted for deposit directly into your curbside recycling bucket just like #1 plastic water bottles and #5 plastic yogurt cups.

Risks and challenges

It is with confidence, experience, and excitement that I am glad to reach out today here on Kickstarter with my new styles and designs for Spring 2014.

For those of you who know ReKixx previously as "ReMyxx" from my successful 2012 Kickstarter (www.kickstarter.com/projects/691761471/remyxx-cool-sneakers-100-recyclable) 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 I REALLY hope you will do so now with my 2014 introductions. BTW- my deal with Daymond did not close by mutual agreement, read my blog page at www.rekixx.com/blogs/news if you want insight.

As I am still working to get ReKixx off the ground, adding these new styles to round out my collection, it is with your purchase at an all-or-nothing goal of $58,118 that will allow me to bring in significant inventory to: 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 2014 campaign (minor delays/issues aside) where I have proven experience, materials waiting, molds complete on all styles except the mary-jane, and you know I will certainly 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.
