About this project

The Importance

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

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. Ultimately, at the end of their life-cycle, all parts of REMYXX, can be “remyxx-ed” to make new products and materials, including a new pair of REMYXX.

The Mission

It is with this 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 green-enthusiasm and instill the importance of products, companies, and individual behaviors that promote and demonstrate good recycling and a green-lifestyle.

The Money

In great appreciation, the money raised here with a fully-funded project (no pledges will be "cashed" unless the full campaign dollar amount is reached) will go towards:

  • Tooling -  outsole molds, cutting dies, printing plates, and screens. Each size sneaker has its own mold and tooling need. ($20,000)
  • Material - all material for REMYXX is special order. To make a completely recyclable sneaker is not easy. This requires a higher than usual minimum quantity order on specially blended raw materials and a higher production run. ($4,000)
  • Inventory - this will be the first production level inventory that officially gets REMYXX into the marketplace. Plus, this inventory will be used to fill the rewards to all $60 or higher backers. ($13,000)

The Growth

Officially where August 2011 marks REMYXX's first product launch date, exhibiting at the Vegas shoe show, Magic-FN Platform, it was well received with significant interest from several big box shoe retailers, independent shops, industry experts, international outlets, and media venues . Fact is, over the two plus years of research & development, REMYXX has gathered many supporters that are eager to see product come to market for purchase. Such said, with product in-hand, REMYXX is confident we will see big and small sales. See the latest article of interest Sportswear International.

The Reward Details

Essentially what I am asking for here on KickStarter with a pledge of $60 is a pre-sale. With a retail value for one pair of REMYXX sneakers at $60, in my project reward you are getting what you would pay at retail PLUS the other gifts at each applicable level. You get the first ever cool sneaker REMYXX delivery and I get to start making my dream a reality. And, WE do it all in the name for better recycling and green-living. It is a win-win-win.

NOTE for international Backers with pledge rewards that require shipping outside of the contiguous U.S., please add $20.00 for additional shipping.

FAQ

  • On this first production I will run 3 or 4 colors/designs of what I have found to be the most popular styles. There will be a black, a two-tone black & white, a two-tone black & green, and a green. NOTE- I am working now on a new style with the eco-messages that you see on the inside of the sneaker, printed on the outside. This may be a favorite choice as well. All are very uni-sex designs.

    Last updated:
  • With a fully-funded project (or more) I will be able to run tooling/molding to make sizes for men, women, and youth. The sizing is the same as you would wear in a converse "chuck taylor" brand. The sizes will be:

    Men-11,10,9,8,7,6,5. Women-12,11,10,9,8,7,6. Youth-10,9,8,7,6,5,4.

    Last updated:
  • At the close of this on-line pre-sales campaign (January 1), 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.
