Everyone knows that you need a good mattress especially when you spend roughly one-third of your life asleep.
So what about the other two-thirds? If you spend a lot of your day on your feet then they need extra care and support too.
But how can you achieve a good level of comfort and support while still being environmentally friendly and ecological?
A decade of designing shoes has taught Po-Zu that mainstream footwear is rarely environmentally friendly.
Fashion is inherently wasteful, and in recent years the rate of change has accelerated so much that we now live in a disposable society. Consequently, the faster the change, the greater the waste, which is frequently laden with chemicals. Thus, our environment has become the ultimate fashion victim.
Our rundown planet deserves nothing less than unconditional love and care, and so Po-Zu strive to achieve the highest eco standards they can possibly attain.
Po-Zu was launched in 2006 with the aim of setting new standards in ecological and ethical footwear manufacturing.
Their shoes are made from carefully selected natural materials that are healthy for your feet, safe for all the workers throughout their supply chain, and kind to the environment.
They avoid harmful glues by stitching all the components together, which makes Po-Zu shoes more breathable, durable, repairable and recyclable.
The other prime purpose is to provide maximum comfort and pleasure for all Po-Zu wearers. The experience of walking or even standing in Po-Zu shoes is an absolute pleasure, thanks to the unique ‘foot-mattress’ - your feet will feel incredibly rested.
Po-Zu's coir 'foot-mattress' is filled with swirly coconut fibers that are linked by highly elasticized natural latex. Not only is this impeccable piece of engineering entirely natural, it is also highly breathable - to keep your feet dry, and provides great insulation for both hot and cold climates.
Po-Zu shoes relieve symptoms of tired and sore feet (according to feedback from 9 out of 10 customers) - especially for those who spend much of the day standing.
Po-Zu was originally conceived as the ideal house slipper, where comfort clearly comes first. They have since expanded their comfort zone outdoors, so you can feel the comfort of your own home, wherever you go.
