fair conditions
sustainability and ethics come first for us. by producing close to home and knowing the shoemakers personally, we can be sure that we are not contributing to the environmental and social injustices of this world.
army strength
our factory in has a long tradition of manufacturing footwear for trekking, safety, and military use. awarded with several quality certificates, the two uncompromised characteristics of our flats are durability and comfort.
innovative materials
kiras are made of eco-labelled, recycled materials from europe. we receive recycled tiretread and cotton from our spanish friends and the plastic bottle felt comes from italy.
circular initiative 
to eliminate waste from our economy completely, we encourage customers to send their old kiras back to us so we can recycle them at least once more. see project reborn
