After a successful 43-day campaign on Kickstarter, the new sneaker-boot hybrid combining functionality with style continues to accept pre-orders
VANCOUVER, B.C., July 11, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- After raising more than $180,000 during a successful 43-day Kickstarter campaign, SKYE proved they've developed the ultimate Sneaker-Boots to provide users with a new feeling of comfort, protection, and most importantly, confidence. Now, as the team enters production to fulfill the orders already placed, they've moved to Indiegogo's InDemand platform to continue accepting pre-orders.
SKYE shoes are offered in two different styles: the Stnley and the Pembrtn. The Stnley style combines a traditional hiking boot appearance with the modern simplicity of sneakers to keep feet dry while taking on new adventures. The Pembrtn merges the slip-on sneaker style with boot functionality to keep feet warm, comfortable and prepared for any activity.
"We are proud to use eco-friendly materials to hand-sculpt sturdy, lightweight shoes that can endure daily wear for years to come," said Gary Chang, Founder of SKYE Footwear. "These easy slip-on shoes will make your active life on your feet a little bit easier. Whether you are spending a day hiking your favorite trail, taking your pup to the dog park or commuting to work in the rain or snow, SKYE shoes have you covered."
SKYE shoes are ergonomically-engineered to support the whole body, not just the feet. A sculpted insole supports the arch and heel relieving pressure points to provide all-day comfort. The shoes are easy to slide on and off with a convenient zipper closure system and no-tie lace design. In addition to providing comfort, the shoes bring an unmatched level of protection, engineered with military-grade Cordura. SKYE mimicked the Japanese Dou method to weatherproof the new sneaker-boots, providing ultimate protection and durability. Additionally, a sawtooth outsole grip, inspired by Formula One tires, provides excellent traction in all types of weather, while the added mudguard protection prevents damage to the toe box.
As the only sustainably-made sneakerboots, SKYE uses eco-friendly materials without sacrificing style or function. All rubber parts are made of 100% biodegradable natural rubber and the outer shoe material is made from recycled water bottles.
SKYE Sneaker-Boots are still currently available for pre-order for $129 with a trial period of 30 days. Choose the style, the Stnley or the Pembrtn, and color of choice via survey after the campaign ends. To pre-order, visit the InDemand campaign at pr.go2.fund/skye.
