LEARN HOW IT BEGAN
Our quest for the perfect sneaker began with a question. How can two guys break into the secret circles of finest Italian shoemaking and create the perfect sneaker? After dozens of trips to Le Marche, the ancient shoemaking capital of Italy, and countless iterations to get the design just right, we think we’ve answered that question once and for all with Koio Collective.

Our lookbook was born at the East River in Williamsburg. Standing at the bank of the River, you can sense the Atlantic Ocean and, for a few seconds, allow the waters to carry you further East - to Italy, where each pair of Koios is handmade to the highest standards of craftsmanship.
Each pair of our sneakers handcrafted in Le Marche, Italy. At the beginning of the process, there are several hundred individual parts, all hand selected to the highest quality standards.
