SneakerasersFormer Ohio University roommates Chris Pavlica and Kevin Consolo pitch SneakErasers, their easy and convenient way to clean scuffed up sneakers, in Shark Tank episode 1223. The guys used to stay up at night hatching “the next million dollar idea” while in school, but they never came up with one. In 2016 he was pitching a film project to Coca Cola executives and his sneakers were a big part of his outfit. Unfortunately, they were scuffed up pretty bad. After 20 minutes of scrubbing with hand sanitizer, he got them clean, but there had to be an easier way. There wasn’t.

That night he called his old friend and told him about his idea for a product that would quickly and easily clean sneakers. Consolo packed his bags and flew to LA where the old friends went all in on their idea. They converted Chris’ garage into their lab. Once they perfected their product, the ordered a pallet and got to selling. They initially focused on selling to shoe stores, but realized the product had mass appeal. Now, they’re in over 30,000 retail outlets including Walmart, Kroger, Meijer, CVS, Costco, Amazon and more.

The product itself is small, circular sponge with a scrubber on one side. It works best when moist. A three pack costs just ten bucks. They also have two other products: GolfErasers and AutoErasers. The GolfEraser is for cleaning golf clubs and the AutoEraser is for touch ups between car washes. The AutoEraser works on scuffs, sap, bugs, grease, brake dust and more. Even with broad distribution, they likely want a Shark’s help funding purchase orders.
