16 Jun Startup Debuts “Shoe Protector” for Skaters
Tired of coming back from a day at the skate park only to find your sneakers scuffed up? The internet now has an answer for that.
New startup Houkie announced this week that it is raising funds to finish the development of a skateboard shoe protector it says will prevent scuffs while riding.
The Houkie skate “shoe sock” is a flexible “one-size fits all” overshoe cover made of molded rubber that is approxmately one-sixteenth of an inch thick, allowing skaters to keep the “board feel” while riding.
