Innovative Pakems Launch on Indiegogo
Lightweight, Packable Shoe Company Raising Funds to Grow
Denver, CO (November 19, 2013) – Pakems, the new line of lightweight packable shoes for active men
and women, today launched its campaign on the Indiegogo crowdfunding platorm, seeking to raise the money to
expand the size and style options for these increasingly popular shoes.
Created by Colorado businesswoman, Julie Adams, Pakems are ideal for active-lifestyles. Designed to provide a
comfortable, walking substitute for inflexible and painful ski boots to and from the lodge, Pakems are rapidly
becoming the go-to and go-from shoe for the gamut of outdoor activities: ideal for skiers, hikers, cyclists,
runners, paddlers and campers; and, for the world of travelers and commuters too.
"Our crowdfunding campaign is intended to help us raise the money we need to offer both children’s and half
sizes,” says Pakems founder Julie Adams. “We’ve had such a positive response to both our high and low top
styles, and our growing range of colors, but we often hear that our customers would love to have Pakems for
their kids and in half sizes too. The money we raise via crowdfunding will enable us to do just that.”
Indiegoo is the online fundraising platform for creative projects and new businesses that allows owners to retain
control of their enterprise and, at the same time, raise small or large amounts of much-needed cash. Pakems is
hoping to raise $40,000 through its online campaign, and interested backers can pledge anywhere from just $1
“We’re eternally grateful to those who have tried Pakems and we hear more good things everyday,” says
Adams. “Now we’re hoping that our many friends and followers will help us reach the next level by
contributing to our new Indiegogo campaign and spreading the word about Pakems.”
Headquartered in Denver, Pakems offer the outdoor enthusiast lightweight, packable and comfortable shoes,
ideal for before and after sports activity. Available at Christy Sports and through a growing list of online and
catalog retailers (e.g. Sahalie, The National Ski Patrol Shop). Visit www.pakems.com or call 303.204.5265.
