Kickstarter Kicks: Footwear Design Start-Ups

Design, tagem, footwear

Daniel Keating of TagEm footwear, a startup footwear design company in London, wrote over to share the project and Kickstarter initiative.

It's a fun project that allows you to customize your footwear further than just changing out the laces. TagEm lets wearers print out and switch up the heal design, which shows through the clear bottom of the show. See the video pitch below.

The TagEm project made me wonder what other shoe design goodies were lurking on kickstarter. The two below are two of the more creative endeavors, one being inspired by Back to the Future.

Personally, I wouldn't mind seeing any of these come to fruition. Check out their Kickstarter pages linked above to see how to contribute and what your donations get you.
