Muvez

muvezRyan Cruz, Eric Cruz and Kevin Zamora hope for an investment in Muvez, their 2-in-1 indoor/outdoor shoes, in Shark Tank episode 1119. Muvez (pronounced MOVES) are a sneaker that converts into a slipper. The main body of the shoe is the slipper which slides into a removable rubber sneaker sole so you can “leave the dirt at the door.”

The three guys have another partner who isn’t appearing on the show. The four men literally sat around brainstorming ideas and built their first prototypes with tin foil, duct tape and cannibalized sneakers. Initially, they couldn’t get “real” prototypes made by factories, so they literally traveled the world and attended every footwear trade show they could find. Those trips helped them find Lou Carrega, a chemical and rubber engineer with thirty years experience in the sneaker industry.

Carrega mentored the guys and introduced them to Chinese factories that could make the vision for Muvez come true. In September, 2019, they raised $33,873 on Kickstarter to get their first shoes on customers’ feet. They call the sneaker/slipper combo “3 Ams.” Single pairs cost $79.99 and come in black, grey, red and blue with white rubber soles. An interchangeable pack costs $169.99 and comes with two different colored pairs of slippers and two sets of soles: one white, one black. This allows for four different looks.

The guys are just getting started and only sell from their website. They likely want a Shark’s help with overseas manufacturing and distribution. Will a Shark think Muvez is a good fit?

Muvez Shark Tank Recap

Ryan, Eric and Kevin will pitch the panel of five Sharks on the business and its prospects for growth. They’ll need to convince Mark Cuban, Kevin O’Leary, Lori Greiner, Robert Herjavec and Daymond John that the company is worthy of a Shark investment. A good business plan, good financials, and sales data will impress the Sharks, but they’ll need to show them THEY are capable of running the company to “Shark standards.” A full pitch re-cap on Muvez will be available on Shark Tank Blog once this episode airs.
