Back in the 8th grade, I had a specific pair of nubuck sneakers that was my favorite which I did everything to keep clean. One day I had worn them to gym class and they ended up with scuffs, dirt patches, and random marks. This made me take the sneakers home and use basic materials to attempt to clean them. When my family saw the results, they started to ask me to clean their sneakers as well. Kick’s Rebirth™ is the product of a sneaker cleaning hobby of mine that began after cleaning that one pair of sneakers in the 8th grade.
I chose to make this my senior capstone because this is something that I have a large interest in that also benefits others. Not everyone pays notices how many people walk around with dirty shoes wishing they were in better condition. Especially those apart of the sneaker head population. Kick’s Rebirth™ helps those who don’t have time to clean their shoes themselves and saves money for those who end up buying new shoes due to the old ones being dirty. However, the idea of Kick’s Rebirth won’t just stop at sneaker cleaning. It will soon include sneaker customization, therefore this is a project that you may wish to stay tuned to!
