NiK Kacy’s shoes to fit all genders


“As a person who identifies as gender-fluid or third sex, I struggled for years to find a pair of shoes to fit both my identity and my feet. A pair of derby-styled wingtips in a “women’s” size 7 was nearly impossible to find. After years of stuffing in extra insoles, I realized that it was time to create the solution. I left my job at Google and trekked around Europe tracking down open-minded, old-world shoe artisans and started designing.”-NiK Kacy

Check out NiK Kacy’s fantastic Kickstarter campaign to make fashionable genderqueer/masculine/androgynous shoes for folks with smaller feet. Click on the photo below or this link: Kickstarter Campaign

Only 25 more days to raise $20,000! Help spread the word.
