Raleigh, NC – September 2012’s Accessories Trade Show in New York heralded the arrival of many goods and gadgets, but one of the most buzzed-about items at the Javits Center was Just For KiiX’s offering called KiiX. KiiX are a patent-pending, easy-to-apply, non-damaging, disposable high heel protector for women’s high heels. In short, this is a life-saver (actually a shoe-saver!) for women everywhere. |
“Any woman who wears heels, whether it be for fun, fashion or work, can attest how easy it is to nick, scuff or ruin the actual heel,” says Just for KiiX CEO Heather Bridgers. “Repairing high heels is not only costly, but also there is no way to restore the look of the heel once it is ruined. My goal was to create something that I could not find: a way to protect shoes from damage, an easy-to-apply method, a product that would not alter the appearance of the shoe and would not ruin the shoe when removed.”
Heather consulted with many experts and scientists, eventually assembling an 8 person team to create KiiX and to take them to market. The Just for KiiX team spent a year and a half on product development, research and focus groups, and successfully made a durable product that was invisible, not complicated to affix to the shoe and left no residue. Constructed from advanced polymers and consumer tested on city streets, KiiX high heel protectors create a clear barrier between heels and the hazards of everyday life. The product has a peel-off backing and perforations to match heel size. There are no glues, no tools and no wait in the application and no sticky mess upon removal.
Each package of KiiX contains six pairs of High Heel Protectors . Four pairs designated by the red backing on the protector are for gloss finished heels (patent leather, plastic, gloss wood or any other gloss finish). The other two pairs of KiiX, designated by the gray backing on the protector, are for non-gloss heels that have a matte finish. Each package is $26.95 and is available online at http://www.kiixheelprotectors.com The sales team is currently working to place KiiX in stores to meet growing demand.
Heather enthuses, “As a working wife, mother and devoted shoe lover, I am thrilled by the positive response to KiiX! Consumers agree that shoes are investments. They should be protected. The upcoming year is exciting for the team and will also present some possibilities for other innovative products to add to the Just for KiiX line.”
