My name is Evelyne Van der Looven and it's a real honor to e-meet you
As a hyper active, fashion loving and frequent travelling woman, I'm more than happy with the current sneaker trend that emerged a couple of years ago in Silicon Valley. Aren’t we all liberated, not feeling obliged anymore to wear heels to be trendy and feminine or to fit into a professional environment? What a relief no longer having to take the shortest way home nor having to stop dancing because our feet hurt!
But did you never feel that frustration that most of the sneakers out there look like the sport shoes of your kids, are produced in Asia, and are of very lousy quality. At least I did! I could hardly find a fashionable sneaker, made by European design and quality standards and truly comfortable at the same time. I tried different high end designer brands, but nowhere in line with my value expectations.
Being active in the fashion business for more than 15 years, I gathered all my energy and decided to leave my job as a fashion agent and create my own sneaker line called "KUNOKA". KUNOKA sneakers stand for creative design, unexpected color and material combinations, European design and quality standards, unparalleled comfort and a relentless focus on sustainable materials and production.
I wear my KUNOKA’s every day, and I hope you will enjoy your KUNOKA’s as much as I do
