Mission statement: Combine soft, uniquely-durable, and breathable boiled wool with the foot support necessary to keep you health, energized, and comfortable all day long.

Using Mother Nature’s most renewable, recyclable ingredients-wool, water, and natural rubber-we start with an economical use of resources, continue, with non-polluting production, and finish with a natural way of packaging.
