Shipping is free to the continental U.S. ($5 for AK, HI, and Puerto Rico). Because this is a beta test, we won’t be accepting returns. We’d love to hear why you’re not 100% happy and will still send you a free pair of the final product after we receive your feedback.

By purchasing the Lace-Up, you're joining our beta test.

The beta test lasts 30 days. Over that month, we ask you to wear your Kengos regularly and to provide 30 minutes of feedback. To thank you for your help, you'll receive an additional pair of the final Lace-Ups for free!

Giving feedback is quick and easy:
2 short surveys (under 5 minutes each)
1 product testimonial (5 minutes)
1 call with our founders (15 minutes)

The beta product is a limited production run, meaning that we're only selling a small quantity. It's only available in two sizes (men's size 9 and women's size 7) and one color (Crudo). More colors and sizes are coming this fall!

The distinct whipstitch detail, seen around the perimeter of our shoe, is the hallmark of our brand. This look is possible thanks to our patent-pending 1Knot™ construction, which ties our shoes together by hand without the use of adhesives.

All-day comfort

Our footbed hugs your foot with arch support and a heel cup that deliver firm yet flexible comfort. Crafted from cork oak bark, a self-renewing resource that’s kind to the planet, our midsoles mold to your foot for the perfect customized fit.



Let your foot breathe and run free in our soft knit upper, a proprietary blend of Amaize™ and eucalyptus fibers. You will be feeling fresh all day with its temperature regulation and antibacterial properties.

Kind to the planet

We're driving meaningful and measurable progress in the fight against climate change. The Lace-Up is free of animal products and includes our patent-pending PureFlex™ rubber formulation, which breaks down 35x faster than traditional rubber in a landfill setting thanks to its high organic content. This is just the first step: we're striving to be 100% plant-based by the end of 2021.
