About

A new category of sustainable, cross-occasion shoes.  Dress them up, dress them down. They’re incredibly versatile. And unlike other shoes, you don't have to sacrifice style for comfort (or vice-versa).  Plus, they’re made of upcycled plastic, so you’ll be helping out the planet with each step.


It all started at a campground wedding.  A big group of guys was complaining about the discomfort of their formal shoes.  This sparked the question, aren’t there guys shoes that look AND feel good?

When we looked, we found sandals or sneakers at one end of the market - and formal shoes on the other.  There wasn’t much in between and nothing that crossed occasions well.  So we created a mash-up... a super comfortable, versatile and design forward loafer with the environment in mind.

"I love shoes and am very particular about the ones that end up on my feet. You get form and function with these slip-ons -- they feel good, and look even better! "    

- Pranav Ramanathan,  Chicago

We think walking tall means paying attention to our footprint, so we upcycle plastic to make our shoes.  Every year over 8MM metric tons of plastic enter the world’s oceans. A Blue Flag is the international designation for a pristine beach, and we’re committed to seeing more Blue Flags fly.  Each pair of Blue Flag shoes is made with ~8 discarded water bottles.



 "These work for whatever my day has in store -  work meetings, running around the city, nice restaurants, etc. I don't have to think about it. I know I'm covered."

 - Jaimie Merolla, New York City


Easy, light and breezy... Dress them up, dress them down.  Blue Flags are perfect for packing, the plane and whatever else your journey has in store.


We spent over a year of designing, prototyping, iterating, and wearing our shoes (literally everywhere) to ensure they were built as we designed them to be.
