We're in love with our new EKN sneakers from Portugal.
They're everything we want in a shoe - comfortable for everyday wear, (even on the concrete floor in our new Balmain store), with vegetable-tanned leathers, recycled rubber soles, and luxurious leather inside, so we can wear them without socks.
As one of our customers already reported "it's as though I've had them for a month already". Betty Hunt, our founder, swears she's going to sleep in hers.
Each shoe is handmade in Portugal by experienced craftsmen, using biological materials - vegetable tanned leather, organic cotton, and recycled rubber - from the highest quality suppliers
EKN take responsibility for everyone involved in the process and experience of making, shipping and wearing their products.
There are zero harmful chemicals used in the manufacturing process.
Every style is produced in limited quantities to ensure minimal environmental impact and maximum attention to detail.
