Are you the next big sneaker designer? Keexs wants you

There can never be enough accessories brands in Nigeria, especially brands that provide affordable, accessible high street fashioin to the masses. Keexs, the new athleisure accessories brand is just that.

The first innovative and social oriented footwear brand in the country (that isn’t some celebrity’s pet project,) the accessories brand wants to innovate in footwear while being a viable part of it’s community, and who can argue with that? The founder of Keeks, Jide Ipaye, describes their mission statement as thus:

“We the citizens need to take more individual and collective initiatives towards correcting some of our social issues (Economy & society) rather than sitting around complaining and waiting for our leaders to solve everything”

Keexs (which is an amalgmation of the words ‘Kicks’ and ‘Keeks’) wants to create footwear that is original, socially conscious (which means no sweat shop or cutting corners for a quick buck) and wants to inspire. This is why they’re putting out the call for the next graphic artist, footwear designer or sneakerhead to come help them create the next great sneaker.



KEEXS is actively looking to collaborate with Nigerian and African Creatives (Artists, Innovators, Inventors / Product Designers and Digital content creators) to bring to life new products or content that will inspire others.
Anyone can submit their work for consideration. Creatives whose works are selected receive payments and or royalties based on the type of work.
