‘Sneaker molding’ sold in stores, online, and through mail-order

NEW YORK — New York-based sneaker mold and leather maker Sneaker Mold and Leather is selling molding kits online, via mail order and through its own online store, according to its website.

The online shop sells the mold kits at a cost of about $10,000 and also offers a website where customers can order mold kits and a mold box for shipping, the company said.

For a limited time, the site offers a discount of up to 50 percent on all mold kits.

The company does not currently offer a brick-and-mortar outlet for retail sales.

The site’s co-founder and chief operating officer, Chris Daugherty, said in a statement that the company was able to expand its inventory, expand its fulfillment, and offer more products than ever before.

“We’ve seen demand for these kits increase over the last year, and now are able to sell them at even lower prices and provide more options for customers to choose from,” Daugney said.
