New BauBax Travel Shoes Sprint Past the Half-Million Mark on Kickstarter

In just a few days since launching, Crowdfunders have already invested over $500,000 in the lightweight, water/stain resistant, cool and very comfortable travel shoes by BauBax made with coconut coir, natural latex, merino wool and bamboo.

SEATTLE, Aug. 16, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The new stylish, breathable and durable travel shoes from travel apparel company BauBax have sprinted past $500,000 in presales on Kickstarter and are on-pace to raise millions, similar to the uber-popular BauBax travel jackets and travel pants.

"We're excited our long-time travel enthusiasts and new customers alike are jumping in with both feet to support for our newest product," said BauBax Co-Founder Hiral Sanghavi. "Our travel shoes are made from a perfect balance of natural materials to provide support and durability while keeping your feet cool and comfortable during travel, and they're available in several styles for casualwear or a night on the town."

Made from coconut coir, natural latex, merino wool and bamboo, BauBax Travel Shoes were designed to be lightweight, flexible and supportive so they can handle the rigors of travel. Features include:

  • Coconut Coir Midsole that makes the shoes extremely light and comfortable
  • All-natural Latex insole that is bouncy and cushiony like a premium latex mattress
  • Australian Merino Wool liner, offers antibacterial properties – that offers unparalleled odor control and allows wearers to go sockless when they prefer
  • Upper exterior made from Bamboo, which is softer and lighter than cotton while outperforming it in moisture wicking and temperature regulation, is extremely breathable, highly sweat absorbent, and helps regulating temperature
  • Stain-resistant and water-resistant upper exteriors
  • Supportive, extremely grippy EVA + Rubber outsole

Travel shoes from BauBax are available for men and women in three styles – dressy, loungy and breezy. Dressy style shoes come in black, grey and beige colors, loungy style shoes are available in denim, olive and grey and the breezy style shoes come in olive, khaki and black.

Apart from the dressy women's version of the travel shoes, which are available as flats and low heels, all other styles of BauBax Travel Shoes can be ordered with or without laces – which are elastic laces, so they slip on easily.

Backers receive free shipping worldwide if they order two or more pairs, and BauBax offers a money-back guarantee on all presales – which making them a great choice as gifts for travelers on any gift list.

The introduction of BauBax Travel Shoes comes on the heels of its success earlier this year with BauBax Travel Pants, which raised $3.2 million to become the most-funded pants in crowdfunding history. The renowned travel apparel company has also raised more than $16 million for its popular travel jackets – with BauBax products designed for functionality and feature-packed for travelers.
