First African Sneaker Design Company Launches On Indiegogo(a Nigerian Start-up) by taofeeq137(m): 5:53pm On Aug 19, 2018
Nigerian start up company Aux Moines founded by 2 Medical students in the College of Medicine, University of Lagos launches on Indiegogo seeking for $80,000 to manufacture 5000 of the sneakers Aux Fit which is said to be a perfect fit for any leg, no matter the deformity.
The sneaker is designed after the Nigerian Super Eagle's Jersey which made wave at the last world cup.

The company plans to use 30% of sales profit to send a disabled kid to a healthy and clean school by renovating the rather poor dormitory conditions of most schools for disabled kids in Nigeria.

Africa, Nigeria, Let us support our own!

Nice idea..

but to be honest I don't think I'd wear those.

Material looks to light and substandard( the outline of your toes shouldn't be showing na).

second why build a product around a fading fad This would have been very appropriate before and during the world cup

Consider offering a variety of colours(the black and white looks a lot better than the lemon green)


These are just my opinion though..

Who knows, you may end up creating a new craze.. #justkeepyourfingerscrossed

The material is very light to enhance the stretchiness and by wrapping around the feet, it is good even for people with disfigured feet or disabilities. Most people say the same things you just sai when ever they see the picture, but they are all wooowwwiiiinnnngggg when they give it a try

The thing is, if it hits the market, the benefits will show up fully, but for now, its supposed to be that sneaker you wear at the beach, or when your shoes hurt your feet at the office, or when you want to go for a jog, or when u want to visit the construction site and all

I see its benefit in keeping the feet warm, since its Neoprene, it will do just right with that

Maybe it's a little 'too' light..

Those Balenciaga, the ones that look like socks are also light.But appeals more to the eyes.

Please write a well defined Pitch. This could turn out great.

This looks good.
The only thing we will want to add is that, if it comes out in different colours, it will be so much better.
And it shouldn't be too dare (expensive).
All the best in this wonderful venture.

Just 3 different colors for now, well...it is expensive for the crowdfunding, because of shipping fee to other countries, but, if crowdfunding turns a success, it will become extremely cheap

I hope this gets to the front page

This is a great product, there are those times you don't want the full weight of shoe/sneakers on your legs and you don't want to put on flip-flops or sandals, this provides the perfect alternative. The only downside i see here is styling it around the super eagles Nike designed jersey. It will limit what you can wear it with. In my opinion, why don't you give options of solid colors, hues of blue and black with little stripes of contrasting colors. Kudos though on coming out with this concept in the first place.

This idea is great...thank you for the insight

Do you know of any great way to get the product out to people
Re: First African Sneaker Design Company Launches On Indiegogo(a Nigerian Start-up) by blujoi(m): 3:26pm On Aug 20, 2018
Yeah, IG is a great medium, think of using any of these IG celebrities/influencers, IG comedians, or simply advertise and promote it on IG. Also get it to shops, you can also use the drop-ship method to push it within Nigeria.

Those IG celebs and influencers cost a fortune

Thanks tho.
Re: First African Sneaker Design Company Launches On Indiegogo(a Nigerian Start-up) by blujoi(m): 8:22pm On Aug 20, 2018
Yeah, true. You can also go on fiverr and get one of those dudes to produce an appropriate IG add for your product and promote it on IG for you, they don't cost so much. Bottom line is you need to some sort of advert/promotion. Is the physical product available in any Nigerian outlet yet? I would not mind getting one
