Its all about the Tribe at the Keexs Party on Saturday, December 16, 2017.
A friend travelled to Europe wearing a pair of Keexs sneakers and his friends gathered round to ask him, “are those sneakers limited edition? They are so beautiful!”
Don’t ask what his answer was, just go ahead and order your own pair of the sneakers – and they may even get delivered on the same day you ordered!
What more, everyone is invited to join the Keexs Tribe to sip, shop and connect this weekend, December 15, 2017 at First Floor, B wing, Pentagon, Plaza, 23, Opebi Road, Ikeja, Lagos State.
This holds between 10am and 5pm; and the best part is that you can bring a friend.
Dress Code: Wear your Keexs or get one at the venue.
The Keexs wears range through the Ijinle slip on, Keexs Eyo sneakers, Lagoscape sneakers, Aso-Ebi sneakers, Ah-Free-Can (Fela Art Inspired-Unisex) sneakers, Adam classic sneakers and much more.
In case you’re wondering what all the fuss is about, Keexs is the first innovative and social oriented footwear brand in Africa.
Founded by Jide Ipaye and Moyosore Olowo, the Keexs footwear brand is an African inspired range of casual footwear that brings out the cool in any man or lady. It is also for people who are expressive and unapologetic for style choices.
The name KEEXS originates from two words KICKS which means casual footwear, sneakers, shoes with rubber related soles and KEEK which means to peep surreptitiously.
Wearing KEEXS will make you feel good in 3 ways – the designs will make you cool and stand out from the crowd; you are contributing towards poverty alleviation; and each product has a story that will inspire you.
Here’s the back story:
Jide had initially founded and has been running an IT company in Nigeria but deep down, he had always dreamed of creating an enterprise that could impact lives.
Now, Jide loves shoes but has the major challenge of size (Europe 48) and the right fit, so he figured why not make his own shoes – and then why not make for others and create a for profit social enterprise with it?
He bounced a few ideas as well as a name off a few friends including Moyo over blackberry chat, got on the internet to check out where to make shoes, flew off to the Netherlands to learn about making sneakers at SLEM institute (The world’s leading school for innovative footwear design and manufacturing).
Moyo flies in from London to meet up with Jide while studying at SLEM institute in Netherlands because he believed it was a great idea. They discussed more over a couple of drinks, held a fundraising event to raise capital and voila! We have a great Nigerian-owned sneakers making company creating ‘limited edition’ shoes for everyone.
So who’s ready to own a pair of Keexs sneakers? Stick with our social media and watch out for the #AccelerateChristmas.
