There isn't a good option, so I decided to create the Ultimate All-Purpose Yard Shoe.

Entrepreneur, Shawn Langton, is bringing his dreams to life. Langton has created a versatile yard shoe, designed for lawn mowing, gardening and landscaping. His new startup, Kujo Yardwear is launching their premium yard shoe on the rewards-crowdfunding website Kickstarter.

The company must raise its goal of $40,000 in 30 days to help produce the first batch of their comfortable yard shoes or they’ll walk away with nothing. They have a great start, receiving over $10,000 in support on the first day.

Langton previously wore old athletic shoes to mow the lawn and work in the yard. After battling soggy feet in the morning dew, slippery worn out treads, and grass-covered socks, he searched for a better option - with no luck. Inspired, Langton decided to create his own “ultimate all-purpose yard shoe” and foster a backyard brand to launch footwear and apparel specifically for the yard.

Kujo’s Yard Shoe has the water-resistance and durability of a work boot, the grip of a soccer cleat, and the comfort, flexibility, breathability and light weight of an athletic shoe. Driven to offer a footwear solution to the many passionate homeowners who, like him, love being in their backyards, Langton says, “That’s what Kujo Yardwear is all about; keeping your yard in shape, so you can it enjoy it with family, friends and neighbors.”

Kujo Yardwear (Kujo, LLC) was set up in Monroe, MI in 2016, and was founded by Shawn Langton, Kelsey (Langton) Martin & Craig Martin. In addition to their yard shoe, Kujo Yardwear will also be introducing a line of socks and gloves designed for working in your yard.
