Sneakerly is a website for new footwear development that will manufacture and sell printed canvas shoes designed and chosen by the website’s community. Designers and illustrators submit designs based on a sneaker template and the business showcases them for the website’s community to decide which designs go to production. Each design has 25 days to receive 250 pre-orders, or ‘endorsements’. If a design successfully reaches this goal the customer’s credit card is billed, the designer is awarded a $2,500 cash prize, and Sneakerly manufactures the sneakers to fulfil the orders. By using the crowdfunding model, Sneakerly is ensuring that capital is invested into footwear people want to buy.
