There are kinds of stuff available to represent your favorite university, whether it's the one you graduated from or the one you root for during basketball or football season. One thing that's missing is collegiate licensed sneakers. Not anymore, thanks to Jordana Schrager. who as a high school student, used to doodle elaborate college designs on a pair of old sneakers which quickly grabbed the attention of other people wanting a pair as well.
'I started out drawing college designs on a pair of old white sneakers. Once I started wearing these shoes, people started contacting me asking for their own college kicks. This is how SKICKS was born. I am inspired by the spirit and pride that each college student has towards their own school.'
Now a college sophomore at the University of Michigan the young entrepreneur has taken her love of art and design and has created Skicks, a new line of original, unique college inspired sneakers. Colleges and universities are sticklers as to who they license their collegiate logos to and Skicks has obtained that ability to create these new super stylish and completely fashion forward sneakers.
Made of canvas and rubber the sneakers, made their debut May 5 and feature for the moment the following schools in the debut collection: Auburn University, Florida State University, Indiana University, Michigan State University, Penn State University, Syracuse University, University of Georgia, University of Miami, University of Michigan and University of Tennessee. Don't see your school? Don't worry Jordana and Skicks will continue to add schools so who knows? By next back to school season your college/university might just be available!
'Whether you’re supporting the Orange at the Carrier Dome, the Hoosiers’ at Assembly Hall or the Georgia Bulldogs at Sanford Stadium, these kicks are the perfect complement to any school uniform.'
Even for the not so die hard fans of collegiate wear, Skicks can still become an integral part of any fashionista's wardrobe. Remember athleticism is a huge trend this season and Skicks fare well with any outfit you want to add a bit of fun to. Love stripes? Skicks has them! Love camo? Skicks has them too! Love animal prints, checks and plaid? You guess it! Skicks has it!
Skicks will be available for purchase at select retailers, fan shops, and university bookstores at any of the above named schools just in time for the back to school season. All the sneakers will be available for sale online at http://www.skicks.com/ as of mid August 2014. Skicks range in price from $59.99-$69.99 and come in flat canvas or high top styles.
