Stylish, Multi-functional and 100% Recyclable: A Superior Alternative in the Foam Composite Footwear Category is Born 

PORTLAND, Ore., April 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Crosskix Footwear, the most stylish, athletic and functional shoe in the EVA (soft foam composite) footwear category, has launched their 40-day Kickstarter campaign (ending May 7, 2013) and pre-sells their first designs to start production. Crosskix offers the perfect mix of style, comfort, and most of all, functionality, and is a superior alternative to Crocs and other brands in the foam composite footwear category.

"We believe there's definitely a void in this category for a more sportier, stylish, and functional shoe," said Eric Saligumba, founder, Crosskix Footwear & Apparel Co. "Our goal was to design a shoe that everyone can proudly wear for multiple uses, and of course, look good while doing it." After over 4 years of designing, redesigning, testing, retesting and producing sample after sample, Crosskix has come up with a shoe that all men, women and children can wear.

Unlike other EVA shoes that are made with just one mold, Crosskix shoes are made with separate components. This allows the shoes to be more flexible, resulting in a fit and wear comparable to fabric-made sneakers. Crosskix shoes only weigh 7.5 oz, making them very lightweight and comfortable for multiple uses including leisure, exercise as well as work.

Crosskix shoes absorb impact when running, jumping or during high-impact type workouts. They are especially comfortable when worn for long periods of walking or standing and even in and out of the water. Crosskix shoes have special air and water drain holes, keeping feet cool and dry and allowing water to enter the shoes and drain easily without having to take them off. This makes Crosskix the ideal shoes for walking on the beach, at the pool or washing your car.

The shoes are made of soft composite foam that is 100% recyclable. As part of their RECY-KIX program, Crosskix repairs and donates all returned shoes to children and families in need around the world as well as offers customers a 15% discount on their next pair.

About Crosskix

Crosskix is an innovative new company based in Portland, Oregon that is revolutionizing casual and athletic footwear for men, women and children in the EVA footwear category. EVA is a soft foam composite material that, until now, only has two brands that dominate this category. Crosskix is a superior alternative to what is in the market today by offering shoes that are stylish, functional, light and comfortable.

HI,
Why do you only go up to US size 13? I need a US size 14 :-( (which is UK size 13)

Cheers

What would be really cool is to offer custom colors of all major colleges, NFL teams, baseball teams etc… So that customers can order shoes to match there attire when they go to a game. Just a thought. Because I know I would be interested in buying a pair like that and I’m sure others would as well.

Sizing

 Crosskix are made to have a "RELAXED FIT"

They are made to have a little extra room but still has a secure fit that allows your feet to feel stable as you walk. 
    There will be a slight amount of room around the perimeter of the foot and the sides of your feet may meet the shoe walls. This holds true especially when you wear socks. 
      The top of your foot will also have some space. And your toes shouldn't touch the front of the shoe.

       

      ______________________________

      HOW TO DETERMINE YOUR SIZE

      Follow these simple instructions to determine the proper size Crosskix.

             

       

      STEP 1:

      Place a piece of paper against the base of a wall and place your foot on top making sure that your heel is touching the wall base.

      STEP 2: 

      With a pencil or pen, mark the furthest part of your foot.

      STEP 3:

      Using a ruler, measure the length of your foot from the end of the paper to the mark you made in step 2.

      Your final step is to locate your measurement on the size chart below and cross-reference it with the corresponding size. 

      NOTE: If your measurement falls in between sizes, we suggest to go up to the nearest size for the best fit..but make sure there is at least 1/2" or 12mm from your foot length to the length on size chart.

        SIZING TIP:

        Order the size you would normally wear in sneakers. Crosskix have been compared to other sneakers that are "standard" sizing which neither runs small or large.

        No problem! We understand there's a good chance this will happen from time to time. If so, simply send back the (unworn) shoes in it's original packaging and we'll send you the correct size.
