You probably saw a sneak peek of this pair of pineapple shoes in one of my recent outfit posts here. If you read the post, I told you there’s a giveaway coming up and that day has finally come! Let me introduce you to my custom pineapple sneakers from SoulKix!
SoulKix Custom Pineapple Shoes
I know it’s a sickness. “Here comes the crazy pineapple lady”, you might think. Haha! But just let me be while it’s still summer season. Tropical fruit prints and designs are just perfect for the warm weather. So I’ll be wearing my pineapple until it gets cold!
Anyway, these pineapple sneakers are custom shoes from SoulKix. If you haven’t heard of the brand yet, let me give you a little background.
I first discovered SoulKix after attending the BloggerBash conference in New York last month. I was chosen to participate in a speed pitching session with brands – meaning I got to sit down one on one with companies for possible collaborations. SoulKix was one of the brands that were there. I got to meet the founder, Mason D. Davis, and Terry McEwen, their CEO. The company’s story is pretty amazing and you can read all about it here. The founder, Mason, has a true rugs-to-hugs story!
SoulKix is basically customized kicks (kix) for you. You design it. They make it. You can use photos of your loved ones or your pets. You can use logos of your team, company or school. You can use your own artwork and so much more. You can be as creative as you like. But of course, they also have their in-house designs for you to choose from. I saw this pineapple design in New York and I couldn’t stop dreaming about it! Obviously, I had to go with it.
More about SoulKix
What I love about SoulKix is that they come in a bag instead of a shoebox. The bag is made of recycled materials and you can reuse it for almost anything. The design is pretty unique!
Another great thing about SoulKix is that for every pair of shoes purchased, they donate the equivalent pair of kicks to their partner, Soles4Souls. They then provide the shoes to the less fortunate. Isn’t it nice knowing that when you buy a pair of shoes, you are also providing another pair to someone in need? I love companies that give back!
Also, do you know that there are over 500 celebrities, athletes, musicians and actors wearing SoulKix? It’s pretty cool to find out you’re wearing the same shoes as Blake Lively or Jamie Foxx, among others. And with their success, they’re now expanding their shoe line for kids too. So you can go matchy-matchy with your children or create a fun design they will love!
