Raw Leather by Muki
Muki’s barefoot shoes are designed to provide health and performance benefits by simulating the feeling of walking barefoot.
They are made with a focus on natural and non-toxic materials. The vegetable tanned leather uppers are treated with naturally occurring tannins from tree bark and other plant sources. The traditional veggie tanning process is a much healthier and longer lasting alternative to the cheap chromium tanning used in mass production. While the natural and recycled rubber soles are attached to the uppers with non-toxic adhesives.
This means harmful chemicals are not being inhaled by workers, absorbed by wearers, or leached into the natural environment.
Muki also lowers its impact by keeping its supply chain local. All shoes are handmade in Portugal with materials sourced from within Europe.
