golfkicksTyler Stuart and John Krosky want a Shark’s help with GolfKicks, their golf spikes that attach to any shoe or sneaker, in Shark Tank episode 1103. The two men, along with a third partner named Matt Mockus, are golfers who range in talent “from decent to dangerous.” They wanted to be able to wear whatever footwear they wanted on the golf course, but you need those spikes on the shoes. So they invented them.

GolfKicks are basically screw in cleats for any shoe – provided that shoe has at least 1/3 inch rubber soles. Simply use a 5/32 drill bit to drill a 1/4 Inch deep hole on the flat part of the sneaker, then screw in your GolfKicks cleat. Make sure you screw them in straight or they won’t hold!

They got their business started with a successful Kickstarter campaign that raised $15,147 in early 2019 which followed an IndieGoGo campaign that raised $1,610 in the summer of 2018. Now, they have an office in Denver where they sell a “traction kit” for $29. Each kit comes with 20 cleats, a sharpie (for marking pilot holes), a phillips screwdriver for screwing the cleats and a 5/32 drill bit. They’re still a very young business, so they likely want a Shark to both help them grow and mentor them along the way.
