Looking for REMYXX Sneakers or Remix from Shark Tank?? August 04 2013

Appearing as Remyxx Sneakers when first aired on Shark Tank, the name, the brand, is now ReKixx. Certainly no change elsewhere, all should know, ReKixx cool sneakers 100% recyclable are still not only about design and fashion but also awareness and sustainability.

Crowd-Funding Tips and Insight from ReKixx Success December 01 2012

With an increasing drive from consumers looking to support products and companies that do more than offer their product for sale, the eco-market has seen a surge of big names, new names, and new products entering the “made from recycled material” and the “please recycle” market.
