Travelers can now travel lighter with more options, as Shooz lie flat and only take up the space of a t-shirt​​


As someone who travels frequently and only with hand-luggage, I saw a huge potential market for a versatile shoe that makes traveling easy.

Shooz, the travel-savvy and customizable shoe, has launched its crowdfunding campaign today, on Kickstarter, with a funding goal of close to $39,000 to offset production costs. Shooz’s modular technology allows wearers to customize their footwear by connecting the top part of the shoe, otherwise known as the Shooz skin, to the bottom sole of their choice with a discreet waterproof zipper. The different combinations of soles and skins allow the wearer to create multiple pairs of athletic, casual and professional-looking shoes.

Shooz skins lay flat and only take up the space of a t-shirt, making traveling with multiple pairs of shoes easier than ever before. Shooz are not only convenient for globetrotters, but also for everyday life. With a multitude of soles and skins available, the combinations are nearly endless, making Shooz appropriate for almost any occasion.

“As someone who travels frequently and only with hand-luggage, I saw a huge potential market for a versatile shoe that makes traveling easy,” said Edoardo Iannuzzi, founder of Shooz. “Based on the feedback we have received, I think others will see the value of having shoes for any occasion while traveling light and compact.”

Shooz are designed and made in Italy with the highest quality materials and are built to last. Each pair comes with an Aquaguard waterproof zipper, by YKK Japan, that is heat-welded with a rubberized film and protects the interior of the shoe from water and humidity. In addition to Italian leather and bio-cotton, Shooz are also handcrafted with an ergonomic design and anti-shock insole, providing top-of-the-line, quality footwear at a reasonable price.

Being able to store multiple shoes for any occasion in a small space is something that is essentially unique to Shooz. Not only do these shoes take up less space than conventional shoes, they also cost less and have a smaller impact on the environment than traditional shoes. With a new skin, you can make a new shoe, and one skin costs about half of what a traditional pair of shoes would cost, giving wearers the opportunity to have more options for half the price.

Early backers can purchase a Shooz Starter Pack, which includes 1 pair of soles and any 2 pairs of skins of their choice, on Kickstarter, for $199, which is over $78 off the market retail value. Other reward packages with more skins and soles are also available. For more information on Shooz or to back the project today, visit or contact stephanie(at)shoozmadeinitaly(dot)com.

The Shooz team is comprised of some of the best and most highly motivated designers working to develop a revolutionary line of customizable and sustainable shoes. Each design is made with the highest quality materials and is built to last, while providing a multitude of options for any occasion. To learn more about Shooz and their collections, visit
