WHY KUNOKA? 

KUNOKA is more than just a shoebrand.  We stand for optimal comfort, a honnest way of working, sustainable production and wayward designs.
We are a wayward brand and that not only by design. We are, think and act in a wayward way. 
 
When designing, Evelyne envisages the KUNOKA woman whose style expresses her personality.  The KUNOKA woman is not afraid to be different, but in a distinguished way. She is pure, honest and real but not predictable, rather surprising… She is kind but strong. She does not fear to embrace color as a surprising element in her classy outfit. She is intrigued by unexpected textures.   The KUNOKA woman is a pure hearted wild child, she is different, we call it wayward.

1/ WALKING ON CLOUDS

Your comfort is our priority. A good shoe defines a person's posture. Therefore we make sure that every one of our shoes is buttery soft and they make you feel like walking on clouds. We are always looking for the best comfort in a shoe, using the finest materials. Buttery soft calfskin leather, removable memory foam insole topped with calfskin leather and extensive padding in the tongue and heel make you walk on clouds ...   

CALFSKIN LEATHER AND COTTON BATH CLOTH LINING

For the lining our designer uses calfskin leather often combined with cotton for maximal comfort.   This gives this buttery soft feeling

REMOVABLE MEMORY FOAM INSOLE TOPPED WITH CALFSKIN LEATHER

Each Kunoka sneaker comes with a memory foam insole for an unmatched walking comfort. This sole adapt its shape to your specific foot.  The sole is topped with premium chromium-free calfskin leather for the most pleasant and healthy contact with your foot.  The memory foam insole is removable and can easily be replaced by a orthopedic insole. 



PADDED TONGUE

Like the heel and the opening of the shoe, the tongue is padded and adds significant additional comfort compared to other sneakers without the aforementioned padding.

PADDED HEEL 

Like the tongue, the heel and opening of the shoe is also padded and adds significant additional comfort compared to other sneakers without the aforementioned padding.

2/ OUR WAYWARD VISION


WAYWARD BY DESIGN

Unexpected colors, premium leathers and materials and surprising textures leading to unique designs. Casual chic but always with a twist, for wayward women. 

WAYWARD BY PHILOSOPHY
Not a new collection every season, but regular releases of new creations over the course of the year. Limited editions to foster the uniqueness of the wayward women wearing them.

WAYWARD BY VALUES
In a world flooded with fast fashion, produced in Asia or Latin America, Kunoka goes for European craftsmanship and sustainable production. Today, people buy shoes for a couple of euros, made of plastic. After a few months they end in the landfills. At Kunoka we have different values. We encourage people to buy fewer but high quality shoes that last longer and truly reflect their personality. Each pair of shoes leaving our atelier is a hand-made masterpiece and we honor the craftsmen who made them. Kunoka makes no compromises when it comes to the quality and sustainability of our leathers and craftsman, even if this comes at a price...
