ShoeBloxx was initially created in 2013 to tackle the carbon footprint issue (pun intended) by creating shoes that can be replaced by individual parts, should it get worn out. This trendy modular detachable footwear has since paved the way to bigger ideas. Now, not only can you replace your shoes by parts, but you can even customise the design and choose the type of fabrics of the shoe to reflect your individual personality; effortlessly.
As a sports enthusiast, having to lug around different set of shoes for different sport activities quite a hassle. The brilliant thing is, Shoebloxx can solve this problem too. Designed from the ground-up, ShoeBloxx is a unique three piece detachable shoe that is easy to use and allows you to switch or combine different type of outsoles to suit different types of activities anytime, anywhere.
Trendy modular footwear - Fun & easy to use.
ShoeBloxx is made in such a way that the upper part of the shoe (uppers) and the rubber bottom (outsole) could be detach from each other. With the shoes ability to be detachable, it opens up to a variety of possibilities that a normal shoe can't do, for example :
Reduce ‘Wear & Tear’
Ability to buy in ‘parts’
Create Your Own Design
More importantly, ShoeBloxx is a shoe and an art canvas combined. As the upper can be detach form the bottom sole, it could then be flatten, transforming it into a canvas where you can create your own design on them and have a completely customised shoe made by YOU! So as you buy the shoe, you also get to bring out your creative side as well.
You want your kids to use ShoeBloxx because not only will it benefit them in solving the most common problems related to footwear, but it will also allow them to express their unique individual creativity plus developing their spatial creativity in the process.
One shoe, infinite possibilities - Multi layered design system.

Risks & Challenges
Creating modular shoes with design focused values that can withstand a users everyday movements will not be easy. We are a very small startup without enough people and money to accomplish this on our own. Thanks to our many supporters who have enthusiastically contributed to taking on this challenge, however, we have reached a point at which we are confident we will be able to manufacture ShoeBloxx on a medium scale provided we can raise enough funds.
At present we have produced our fourth prototype shoe and completed our basic activity based application, and we have also fabricated custom soles to hold the uppers designed by a engaging an established 3D printing agency. As long as we don’t run into problems with durability or the production process the current prototype models are ready to be turned into shoes we can ship to backers.
The first hurdle we will have to overcome in manufacturing ShoeBloxx shoes is the fabrication of metal moulds for the custom soles needed to hold the separate components. This is expensive, and new moulds must be made for each size of shoe. As a result, even if we meet our minimum funding goal we won't necessarily be able to produce a satisfactory range of sizes. We will decide what sizes to produce based on the level of funding we receive and then send backers the one best suited to their measurements. We may run into difficulties that will delay shipment of our product. We will post regular updates to keep backers informed of our progress and respond to comments and questions as quickly as we can.
