FVV will also tap in with the winner throughout the trial to get their thoughts on the process, including what they like, dislike, and whether or not they’ll recommend the service to their cohorts. The winner should also be prepared to take some photos for us — no prior photography experience is needed, but aren’t all sneakerheads photographers?
As we discussed in our announcement story on the company back in June, KYX World deserves a spot at the table when discussing sustainable alternatives in footwear. The sneaker game has a very real problem with overconsumption and accessibility. Bringing fashion’s affinity for rental programs to footwear may alleviate some of those frustrations, but of course it’s not perfect. For instance, the carbon emissions from the constant shipping of pairs back and forth pose a real threat to our environment, but as we’ve said it the past, our emphasis is on progress over perfection.
Our goal with this giveaway is to put this theory, and service, to the test. We will also be trialing KYX World alongside the winner, sharing our feedback with you, our readers, over the next three months.
To enter the giveaway, you must be a resident of the United States and complete all of these tasks:
We will announce the winner in Instagram comments section, and via DM, on Thursday, August 12.
