Shooz How it Works

How it works

Sole and skin are linked through a waterproof heatwelded divisible zipper. Attach the ends of the zippers and close the zip just like closing your jacket.

Challenges

It’s never easy to do a product that had never been done before and when trying to explain the idea to our Italian manufacturer he thought we were mad. It took a while to come up with the first working prototype, the first ones were looking more like bananas than shoes but we knew it was just a matter of insisting and persuing our intentions.

Funding

Kickstarter has been an initial funding to get a sales track record, exposure and a first production in place. Shooz is now looking fro support to realize a direct to consumer marketing strategy which consists in creating independent retail and online stores. Shooz is all about quality, but quality doesn’t need to come with astronomical prices, it’s third party retailers that drive up prices. So to offer a quality product and a value price we won’t wholesale.

Current Status and Future Goals

We are about to start production of our Kickstarter orders and are now looking for investors to raise 500k or licensees that will help us realize our direct to consumer marketing strategy.

  1. This is what I love about the advances in technology – the way people are using their imaginations creating products to support daily living from head to toes. Thanks for sharing this info.

  2. These actually look pretty cool! I pack way more shoes than I need to when I travel. My husband would love it if I found a way to reduce the weight on my luggage.
