Check out our new Kickstarter project, PUNGAS


Two years ago, you helped us introduce the world to HICKIES. For the last two years, we’ve spent a lot of time experimenting with 3D printing technology and coming up with new ways to personalize sneakers. We found a way to mix our two passions with our newest creation, PUNGAS, which is live on Kickstarter now. Check it out and pledge!

Live Now
Live Now

PUNGAS are bold SHOE ACCESSORIES. They are 3D printed, easy to use, and wearable on different parts of your sneakers. They are a byproduct of an exclusive collaboration between HICKIES, Pictoplasma and Shapeways, the leading 3D printing manufacturer based in New York.

PUNGAS opens the door to customize your shoe in a completely different way and are proof that 3D printing technology is changing the way we manufacture and shop forever.

We ask for you to check out PUNGAS, be bold and to challenge the status quo like you did with HICKIES, and to fall in love all over again.

Help us introduce the world to PUNGAS.
