Our values

  • Respect

  • Transparency

  • Care

  • Recognition

  • Respect

    Love and respect are our secret for balance: we decided to put humans on the center of the equation to make it work, and truly believe the focus on value for society will drive value for business not the way around. Money with no social impact is money we do not value.

    Transparency

    Transparency is our nick-name: our sense of connection goes beyond showing our good face, we want everyone involved with us to see our x-rays, all the fuel that help us move is distributed in a fair and visible way to all, always. Our clients have the right to know how we spend their money, and we honor that right.

    Care

    We know everyone is as unique as their left and right foot, so we propose collections as diverse as our design community, produce shoes as loyal to our clients unique measurements and produce with the unique talented hands of our shoemakers.

    Recognition

    We service designers so they can bring their ideas to reality with the best tools available, acting as a supporter of their own brands, they are the spotlight of each collection.

  • Visibility

  • Connectivity

  • Transparency

  • Respect

  • Visibility

    We see our shoemakers as our clients, therefore they’re visible for you as well: we are in love with shoemakers art, we really value it and thus value them as a whole. We consider ourselves successful when they are too, there is no other way for us to achieve success.

    Connectivity

    We see our platform as a node of connection of humans with talents, desires, needs, and stories that happens to sell shoes; a node where everyone can reach the other and establish a connection for shared growth.
