I backed this company on kickstarter because I believe this is a good idea for lounging around the house! Wearing outside on the deck and just relaxing! Will I wear them out? No. Will I wear them to the gym? No. Do they make awesome slippers? Yes! I can’t wait to get them! It’s been about a year in the making! They experienced numerous problems in the design. One thing I didn’t like is they farmed it out to China I believe! They had problems with the mold and design tearing in the back and they redesigned and totally fixed different issues! It pushed the launch date back, but created a better product! I can’t wait it’s already shipped and on its way! They even included a free cinch bag as a thank you! They rock!
**Update** April 29th 2014
I received my CrossKix finally and they are much harder than and I thought. Not nearly as comfortable as crocs! Crocs are like walking on air! However; they are hard enough to wear out and to the gym. Will I do that? Probably not as I wear orthotics in my sneakers.
The sizing is true to size!
Stay tuned for practical review.
