About

WOOL CROSS X by Giesswein - The World‘s Most Comfortable WOOL SPORT SHOE

The Wool Cross X by Giesswein is the world’s first high-performance sport shoe with a 100% Merino wool lining. Designed with micro-grip technology and temperature regulating fabric, the Wool Cross X is sure to keep your feet happy on all of life’s trails.

100% 3D Stretch Merino Wool Lining

The small air chambers in our wool regulate the temperature in the shoe. When you wear this revolutionary shoe, you’ll experience a cooling effect during the hot, summer months and a warming effect during the cold winter months. The Wool Cross X is even wearable without socks. No sweaty feet, no smell—just pure comfort!

Every WOOL CROSS X draws away up to 125ml of sweat without feeling wet!

Removable and Replaceable Insole made of Merino Wool

Another Merino wool highlight of our Wool Cross X is its interchangeable footbed. The shoe’s footbed is covered in 100% Merino wool. Experience a performance footbed with long-term cushioning!

No matter if you’re exploring in snow, rocks, water, wood, mud or sand, the Wool Cross X is perfect for all of life's trails. We’ve employed micro-grip sole technology which is made for hiking, trekking, mountaineering and trail running. Ready for all of life’s adventures.

What’s inside the Wool Cross X?

We source our Wool from some of the most eco friendly farmers in the World. Learn more about the treatment of our sheep:

  • fed on natural grass
  • drink recycled rainwater
  • no chemicals used, and no animals harmed: 100% sustainable, 100% mulesing-free, 100% of the wool used
  • electricity used is from solar panels
  • even the biogas is recycled


Sustainable Manufacturing Process

In the footwear industry, 20% of the material used is thrown away as scraps and lost forever. We've found a new way to process our wool while producing 0% waste. 100% of our wool scraps are recycled and transformed into recycled yarns.

Select your Color and Size at the end of the Campaign!

Savings passed on to you: Due to the fact that there are no resellers or middlemen included in our Kickstarter campaign, can offer you spectacular prices—for a limited time. We are proud to be able to deliver you an affordable, high-quality WOOL CROSS X shoe.

Size Help

Half Sizes: If you typically wear ½ sizes, we recommend sizing down.

Full Sizes: If you typically wear a full size, we recommend the same size for the best possible fit and comfort.

Size Exchanges: Getting the perfect fit can be difficult especially online. It’s our mission that you get the best possible fit with your WOOL CROSS X. We'll provide a detailed sizing tool. Send us a message and we’ll be happy to help you out with your exchange!

Founded as a family business, Giesswein is currently being run by its third generation. We, Markus and Johannes Giesswein, grew up surrounded by and learning about wool. At Giesswein, we’ve made it our mission to create one-of-a-kind products by reinventing the positive attributes of wool. Our goal is to process our wool in such a way that its best properties are highlighted and well-used. In order to reach this goal, we continue to develop and produce unique fabrics from our own production center in Tyrol, Austria. We hand-select only the best raw wool, and source according to the highest ethical and ecological standards.

We truly believe in Kickstarter as a platform, where like-minded entrepreneurs and early adopters bring innovative, disruptive and sophisticated projects to life. We already have run a successful Kickstarter campaign and love this outstanding community. The WOOL CROSS X is a new generation of active outdoor shoe. Kickstarter connects us with people like us; fact-interested, early-adopting and technology-enthusiastic people. We strongly believe that we've created a product that many people are eager for, ourselves included. We do also highly appreciate all feedback and requests regarding our WOOL CROSS X. If you have something you want to share with us, please feel free to write us any time to markus@giesswein.com

Risks and challenges

We have spent the last year developing this technology and our team has been working night and day to nail down and perfect the design, production, and logistics. We have worked closely with our manufacturers to ensure that quality control is met at every step of the production line.

We understand that no campaign comes without challenges. We promise to communicate with transparency and to work around the clock to ensure your expectations are met.
