Hi everyone!

We have sent the surveys on wednesday. So check you emails and/or your dashboard in Kickstarter and fill them out so we have your info. 


Kickstarter survey was very limited, and their system kept changing the order of our questions so we could not add a multiple reward section in the survey. But don't worry, we have everything under control. If you are a multiple reward backer just follow this instructions and you are set: 

1) Complete the survey and choose the colors for one reward using the multiple choice questionaire, and for the other reward/s write the color selection or the detail of the reward in the "comment" box. 

2) Send us an email to with the subject : MULTIPLE REWARD and detail your rewards and color selection in the email as well. Just to make sure we have the right info. 


We will prepare another update shortly with our production schedule and deliver schedule. 


We are working hard on the production and packaging. We are also hiring !! We need our team to grow. We are looking for a community manager and a fashion designer / stylist (see the job descritions using this here )

. If you have someone to refer to us or you think you are good for the job and would like to join our team shoot an email to :


Remember you can use the HICKIES APP to  try the colors of the HICKIES on your sneakers. You can download the app from your Apple store or Android Market.

You can also see the 16 color combination colors on our website

This are some pictures we took using the app. We encourage you to do the same and share them on our FB page or Twitter to help backers to get ideas on the best matches for the HICKIES. There are so many cool sneakers out there is crazy!

We love you all, and love your kicks!

      @Anders, By multiple reward we meant when you pledge for example $90 and you wanted 2 $45 rewards, or you pledged $91 and you wanted the $75 rainbow pack and the $16 White body / Black head Reward. Only for this kind of pledges is the MULTIPLE REWARD note.
      :) Hope it is clear now, if not let me know.
      We received your info correctly.

      @Herbert, glad you had no problems!

      Unless Anders' correction is right, I had no problem either.

      Oh...Now I get it: by "multiple rewards" you mean two or more of the same or diffrerent reward categories! I misinterpreted it as more than one pack in my 45 $ reward. Am I right?

      Same here - no problem to select three choices, and the result looks OK, too.
      Let us know if you still need it emailed please!

      Just to let you know, I had no problems with the survey. All my three multiple choises showed up just fine and made it possible to pick colors for all my three rewards. If the problem is that you don't receive it right, please let us know, and I will e-mail them to you.
