The Importance

With more than 300 million pairs of shoes thrown away last year, in the U.S. alone (soles4souls.org), REMYXX™ is taking matters into their own feet.

It is with an uncommon marketability and distinct fashion that REMYXX are Sneakers with a Purpose™. The mission is not only to deliver an enjoyable sustainable sneaker, but also to advocate and initiate improvements in recycling. REMYXX are to be worn proudly as a means to share your eco-enthusiasm and instill the importance of products, companies, and individual behaviors that promote and demonstrate good recycling and a green-lifestyle

The Product

REMYXX cool sneakers 100% recyclable are the world’s first and only completely Landfill-Free Sneakers™. With one target in mind, REMYXX hits two critical marks as our sneakers address the importance of recycling by dressing the feet in style. REMYXX are casual comfortable lifestyle sneakers, in strong colors with clever designs for mass appeal to 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 special blend of lab certified recyclable materials. With the recycling symbol prominently displayed on the uppers and the bottom sole you can tell 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 REMYXX in their second-life. Ultimately, at the end of their lifecycle, all parts of REMYXX, can be “remyxx-ed” to make new products and materials, including a new pair of REMYXX.

First Launch REMYXX Designs

At all sneaker level rewards, backers will choose from the four designs above at the end of the kickstarter project date. You will receive an email survey asking for your design selection(s) and your shoe size(s), whole sizes only, and your shipping address. Note- if minimums are not met on any one particular design, it may be necessary to ask you to re-choose.

And to specifically receive the Signature Green edition pictured below, backers need to pledge their reward at $76, $107, or $151 and above, that this favorite of favs design is only available at certain reward levels.

The Reward Details

Essentially on KickStarter your pledge is a pre-sale where I am able to process your order now to produce the goods for a later delivery, all with a better consumer value. You get in on the first ever REMYXX production, I eagerly move from an idea to a running business, and, WE do it all in the name of better recycling and eco-responsibility. It is a win-win-win.

Note- For all rewards delivering in the contiguous U.S., shipping is included. For Backers outside of the contiguous U.S., please add $20.00 to your pledge for additional shipping.

Rewards Images & Sneaker Packs

The Money

In great appreciation of your Kickstarter pre-order, the money raised here with a fully-funded project will go towards:

  • Tooling -  outsole molds, cutting dies, printing plates, and screens. Each size sneaker has its own mold and tooling need. ($17,500)
  • Material & Inventory - special blended raw materials and the first ever production run inventory. Fact is, to make a completely recyclable sneaker is not easy. Most material is special order with higher than usual minimums. It is this inventory that will officially get REMYXX into the marketplace, plus, it will be used to fill the rewards to all $65 or higher backers. ($11,200)
  • The "Extra" Rewards - aside from the sneakers, funds here will cover REMYXX branded tee-shirts, tote bags, and stickers. ($4,800)
  • Reward Shipping - estimated shipping to all my wonderful U.S. backers. Backers outside of the contiguous U.S. please add $20 to your reward amount. ($3,600)
  • Kickstarter Fees - Kickstarter charges a 5% service fee and Amazon Payments charges 2% for credit card processing. ($2,597)

Note- no pledge will be "cashed" (your credit card will not be charged) unless the total campaign goal of $39,697 is reached.

Thank you for liking my sneakers, making eco-smart decisions, and believing in me to support the REMYXX effort.

FAQ

  • With a fully-funded project (or more) I will be able to run tooling to make sizes for men, women, and youth. The sizes will be: Men-6,7,8,9,10,11,12. Women-6,7,8,9,10,11,12. Youth-4,5,6,7,8,9,10. The sizing model is the same as you would wear as Charles Hollis Taylor, aka "Chuck Taylor" wore as one of the first basketball sneakers in 1917. REMYXX is also said to be true to size, not narrow, not wide, but on the roomier-side. And at the end of the kickstarter project, you will receive an email asking for your specific shoe size(s), whole sizes only, design selection, and other details.

  • At the close of this pre-sales campaign, with a fully-funded project, to all backers, I will send a survey where you will fill in your sneaker size, sneaker color choice, mailing address, and tee-shirt size.

  • After the project closes in June I will start the sneaker manufacturing process. The first step is to order my special-run raw goods that will make the upper textile material and the outsole rubber-type material. Both processes each take about 30 days. At that same time, my tooling factory will make outsole molds for each size being offered. Only following can I begin printing my designs followed by cutting, stitching, building, and finishing. Understanding I do not have any materials pre-made and manufacturing is across 4 factories, we must complete most steps before moving onto the next. Additionally I will quality check a first article on each design and verify sizes making this first production a longer lead-time than will be in the future.

  • You can see the 4 styles available in The First Launch Design Choices section above. The plan is to run each of these 4 designs as have been found to be market-tested favorites. At the end of the kickstarter project, you will receive an email asking for your specific selection(s). Note- if minimums are not met on any one particular design, it may be necessary that I ask you to re-choose a more popular selection. Additionally at some reward levels the Signature Green edition is available.

  • Hey All, My name is Kara and I want to share with you on the comfort and wear of REMYXX. In a special "test" release from Gary I can honestly tell you that REMYXX are sooooo comfortable. I wear them almost everyday. They are probably the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned, like my Uggs. They break-in right away, very soft, no rubbing. And with my high arches, I usually have trouble finding comfy shoes. I have no problem with REMYXX. I love them!!!
