(ROCKWALL, TX – Sept. 5, 2018) TOMS Shoes won the hearts of Americans who embraced its mission of giving away a pair of shoes to the underprivileged for every pair of shoes the company sold. Now Reezos, a new shoe company with its own unique brand of benevolence, is poised to enter the competitive recreational shoe market.

On August 7, 2018, the founders launched a one-month crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter, in their efforts to raise $50,000 to fund their initial shoe purchase. With two days left, the Reezos Kickstarter campaign has generated nearly $44,000, 87% of its funding goal! The Reezos Kickstarter is all or nothing; either it funds completely or not at all.

Though the shoes are of the highest quality, the social mission is what makes Reezos a game-changing brand. Reezos was founded on the belief that youth sports have an immeasurable impact on the children’s development. Along with its emphasis on sports, Reezos places an equally high importance on the value of education. Because of these core beliefs, Reezos donates 20% of all revenue (not profit) towards projects that develop inner city young sports and education. Reezos initial Give 20 Project will be to provide $10,000-worth of educational materials for its first partner, Backfield in Motion (https://www.backfieldinmotion.org/), a Nashville, Tennessee, nonprofit founded on the importance of sports and dedicated to educating youth.

The co-founders, Reese Wilson and Logan Dunn, 2014 graduates of Rockwall-Heath High School, both participated in D-1 college football programs—Reese walked on and played receiver at Vanderbilt, and Logan was a team manager for the Oklahoma Sooners football team. Their interactions with other players—who testified that team sports positively impacted their lived by giving them a way out of bad situations and inspiring them to reach goals beyond what they could imagine—prompted their desire to establish a company that could support other youngsters who needed both opportunity and hope.

Reezos’ first shoe—the Reezos One—is an athleisure shoe that comes in two color options, white and gray. The ultra-lightweight shoes boast have a rubber outsole, a lightweight, knitted upper, and a memory-foam insole. Market research overwhelmingly supports its clean, sleek design.

Reezos is seeking support from the public via pre-ordering shoes on Kickstarter .
