Colors survey and Random stuff

Hi HICKIES lovers,

Are you getting those sneakers ready for an amazing weekend? We totally are!

Just wanted to give you a quick little update.

FIRST: We have made it to the second stage of the William Mc Shane competition. We are now one of the 6 remaining projects. So please keep voting every day so HICKIES can win and spread through out the world so everyone is able to pimp up those sneakers!

You can vote using this link

SECOND:  We have created a survey for you to start choosing your favorite color combination. This is not the final selection you will make, this is just a survey for us to know the colors preference and start organizing our production schedules. And also we are curious to see your choices and to know if there is any color combination you all LOVE and we are missing in our first collection.

The survey is posted in our FB fan page, you can access to it by clicking this link

We leave you this performance by Mr. Pink Stuff to start your weekend with some cool rhythm.

Love your kicks!

Mariquel & Gaston

      So have you heard anything about who won?

      Hi Eric.
      They are not. They are perfect for kids from 2 years old and older. If you refer to Mr. Pink stuff, he does not have Human feet, thus the sneaker has to stretch a lot for his foot to fit, that is why the HICKIES look funny on his un-human feet. :)

      Maybe I'm the last holdout on Earth, but I'm not on Facebook...any other survey option?

      @Alex, no, don't worry. The final survey will be done using Kickstarter.

      Will the final color selection survey be done using Facebook? I personally don't have one.
