Who We Are

How We Got Started Making These Freakin’ Cool Products

what we believe

Our Core Values

Take Personal Ownership​

We take great pride and personal ownership of not just every product we make, but in HOW they are made. We want every customer to love their products as much as we do, thats why we never take shortcuts, honor our commitments, and admit when we can do things better.

Succeed at the Expense of No One

There is more to success than just the bottom line. For the 50+ families we work, we will never compromise their well being for a profit margin and ensure each one receives fair pay with benefits, training opportunities, and safe working conditions. Their success is our success.

Be Good Stewards

This beautiful earth we inhabit is not our own and we have the ultimate responsibility of making sure it stays beautiful for future generations. We go to great lengths – and pay higher production costs – to ensure our practices and suppliers meet strict environmental standards and processes.

eco-friendly

Our Environmental Commitments

Reusability and recyclability

Extra efforts have been made to design shoes that use more durable and sustainable materials such as recycled plastics in our soles, water based adhesives, and recycled materials in our packaging.

Sustainable Distribution

Our project supports sustainability practices by partnering with logistics companies that have implemented a packing system that has damage prevention, cube optimization, and wise material selection.

Environmentally friendly factories

Our certified leather tanners incorporate on-site water treatment plants that recycle, purify, and reuse the water needed for the curing and tanning process. Any unused water is returned to its original source in an even cleaner state.

Long-lasting design

We pay higher prices to get better quality materials to use when we design and create each product. The life cycle of our goods will last the customer for years to come, eliminating the need to repurchase as often.
