Juntos upper, sock liner and insole are crafted from single origin Huacaya Alpaca fleece, sourced from the Mazar Wildlife Reserve in the ecuadorian highlands. Hypoallergenic and 20% finer than human hair, we spin our alpaca wool into ultra soft, light, moisture-wicking and temperature regulating hugs for your feet.
Of all ranch animals, alpacas are the easiest on the environment. Lacking hooves, each step of their gentle feet causes no harm to the arid land they call home. They even graze tenderly, munching on the tops of grasses, so the roots hold soil in place while the grass grows anew.
Natural is our north star
Building on mother nature’s handiwork we’re on a quest to incorporate sustainable materials that improve performance and tread lightly on the enviroment.
Our insoles are plant powered. Crafted from coconut fiber our insole padding molds seamlessly to the shape of your feet while providing maximum breathability and insulation. Made from 100% non-toxic materials
Our insoles leverage existing waste residue from coconut harvesting to make each step a pleasure. And when the journey is over they biodegrade back into the earth where it all started.
Our silky soft knit shoe lining is created from Banana Tree fibers harvested in the lowlands of central Ecuador. It’s Antimicrobial, strong and absorbent properties make each step a pleasure.
The parts of the banana we use are a doubly-renewable resource. A banana plant shoots pseudo-stems out of its base. Each pseudo-stem grows a number of bananas, and then must be cut down to encourage new pseudo-stems. These fibers are normally burned, putting carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Banana fibers are not just renewable and biodegradable, but when we put them into our shoes, they directly fight climate change.
Naturally contouring and springy, our sugarcane midsole is made with the world’s greenest EVA.
Our insoles leverage existing waste residue from coconut harvesting to make each step ligter on the planet. And when the journey is over they biodegrade back into the earth where it all started.
Our flexible toecap and laces lived their former lives as lowley single use plastic, but now help to protect the planet with each step you take.
