Kengos are easy to spot across a room: that eye-catching whipstitch is unmistakably ours. We call this stitching the 1Knot™ construction because it ties our shoes together by hand, without glue, with just one knot.

Crazy comfy

Crazy comfy

The more you wear the Lace-Ups, the more comfy they get. Right out of the box, our footbed hugs your foot with built-in arch support and a heel cup. It only gets better from there as the shoe molds to your foot with every step, thanks to the magic of cork.



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

Kind to the planet

Kind to the planet

We prove that fighting climate change can be scientific and stylish, innovative and impactful, factual and fun. We only use five components (most shoes have at least 15) and the components that we did keep are 98% plant-based and 100% animal-free. This significantly reduces our environmental footprint. We’re also putting our money where our mouth is by doing a lifecycle analysis. Stay tuned to nerd out with us on the results!
