Kickstart This! Are those paper sneakers?

It's always a pleasure to find a great project to back on Kickstarter, but there are so many to sift through! Kickstart This! does the work for you, highlighting the most interesting finds of the week in one handy roundup.

LIGHT WING trainers
Goal: $15,000
Ends: August 1


Paper sneakers don't sound like a remotely good idea, especially in the rain. But Tyvek is a special kind of paper made of high-density fibers, which means it's still thin and light like paper, but won't tear. Tom's fans will surely want to get a closer look at these.
