About

Weightis is a global novelty! A shoe with integrated but removable weights, thus these shoes can also be worn as normal sneakers. Weightis is a combination between the comfort of a training shoe and an everyday sneaker, with athletic elegance, durable and breathable fabric all together as a unique idea. Our sneakers are for everyone, who wants to burn more calories in everyday life without noticing it. Weightis are also for those, who are already exercising and want to use them for special training exercises.

The difference between Weightis and conventional weight cuffs is, that you decide for yourself how much weight you want to use. You can use Weightis without weights as a usual sneaker, you can use only a part of the weights, or you can use all of the weights. Weightis is always individually adapted to your needs!

The average person takes about 5000 steps a day. We don't even think about it. It is in our nature. So, why don't we take advantage of it?

In your everyday life, you can achieve a lasting workout by wearing Weightis for a longer period of time. And you can increase the difficulty for short-term workouts, by adding more weights while walking or sporting. Afterwards, you can easily remove the weights and go about your life.

We have developed a shoe sole with several chambers, in which the adjustable weights can be inserted individually in a matter of seconds, thus you can control the intensity of your training.

How much weight can be put on the shoes?

We achieve a total weight (sneaker and weights) of up to 1kg, which corresponds to the normal weight of a weight cuff. Of course it depends on the size of the shoes. Shoe size 47 fits more weights than shoe size 36.

What we value the most, is the quality of our shoes, which is why we have chosen Portugal for its manufacturing. In addition, our workers are part of our family and we pride ourselves to offer them the best possible conditions. So, you can always wear your Weightis and know they were made with a smile.

How did the idea for Weightis come about?

We were training many years with this unsexy weight cuffs and loved the results. Then we were asking ourselves, how can we use them in our everyday life, doing sport every day without noticing it or spending additional time on it. So the idea of Weightis was born.

What are your goals in the next five years?

To have at least one million satisfied customers worldwide, who we help with our Weightis to achieve their goals.

Did you do something in the sports sector before weightis?

Cyril: Yes, I have already worked as a fitness trainer before and also attended the Swiss Academy for Fitness and Sport. Riccardo: I have been doing fitness as a hobby for almost 10 years.

Where are you from and how old are you?

We‘re both from Switzerland. Riccardo is 27 years old and Cyril is 26 years old.

Why Kickstarter?

We see Kickstarter as a great opportunity and a win win situation for everyone, so we decided to take this chance.

What would you like to say to your supporters?

We would like to say thank you to each one of you, who support us and our project. Because of you, the idea of Weightis becomes realizable.

We have given our sneakers to 10 test persons for 3 weeks, here are some reviews:
