Koio Founders, Johannes and Chris


Koio brings together modern design, sustainable Italian craftsmanship, and unparalleled comfort to create luxurious footwear for everyday wear.

We’re so devoted to ensuring our shoes are flawlessly constructed that we visited 34 factories in Italy before deciding to partner with an esteemed manufacturer in Le Marche. Inside this facility, our shoes are masterfully handcrafted using locally sourced leathers, suedes, and recycled materials. Every pair passes through the hands of 42 artisans before it’s deemed complete.

Your Koios are designed to look refined when dressed up with tailoring, and feel cool when pared back with jeans. In other words, they’ll work well for every occasion. Think of them as your forever sneakers.
