KOIO was my first dip into the world of luxury and boutique footwear. Almost every day that I wear them i get comments on them and people ask where they can get their own pair.

John W.
Great fit and quality. Wear around nyc and it handles the streets well. Easy to clean and the shoe is very durable on multiple surfaces (concrete, cobblestone, brick, etc). Overall a great buy.
