OTZ Shoes: Since 2009 in Malibu, California

In 2005, Ludo, creative director of a leading athletic lifestyle brand, came across an article written by Petr Hlavacek describing the oldest shoes ever found. These belonged to Oetzi, the iceman, and dated back to 3300B.C. The shoes were quite remarkable considering the time period - made of deer skin stitched to a bear skin sole with an internal woven net filled with dried grass and moss for warmth and comfort. Inspired by Oetzi's ingenuity, Ludo realized he could redesign this iconic shoe incorporating today's trend, comfort and technology. Hence the concept of OeTZI3300 shoes was born.

CORKlite is our lightweight soft comfort cork footbed. It is made from a compression molded
EVA form wrapped with a 1.8mm cork casing. The footbed is lined with a 1.8mm suede leather cover.
This provides a softer cushioned ride that gradually moulds to the shape of your feet.

The antimicrobial properties of the cork reduces bacterial build up
and allows you to wear the shoes with or without socks.


OTZ is proud to be working on the BlackSpotCow Project in developing mechanisms within our company that allow us to provide financial assistance towards the Arthritis Foundation - a leading international research and education non profit organization for Osteoarthritis, Arthritis and other related joint diseases.

3300 years BC. tattoos found on Otzis body reveal that he too had symptoms of arthritis which may have been treated with primitive forms of acupuncture. These tattoos have become the symbol of our brand, our logo.

Otz are amazing
I have worn them for two years straight almost every day. The toe is finally starting to wear a hole in the front, so I ordered a new pair. I wish they have half sizes for each shoe. the 36.5 fits perfect. I have washed and dried these guys often and two years is a long time for everyday use. Good value and super comfortable shoe.
Love OTZ shoes!
These shoes are extremely comfortable and the tapestry material looks very cute dressed up or down.
All I can say is - I love these shoes! I have many of the linen styles and a few leather ones, but these are my favorite by far.
Decent support for ballet flats.
I have a love/hate relationship with ballet flats: love the way they look; hate the fact that they offer very little support. I have other OTZ shoes, so I thought these were worth trying out. I've worn these twice so far and have had very good results. In wearing other ballet flats, I usually have some residual foot issues that occur after wearing them. Not with these. I was also worried that the fabric would feel heavy, but they are perfect for warm weather! Also, as an additional note: I like OTZ shoes because they have a wider toe box for my wide feet. I think if you have a narrow foot, this shoe might not fit as well as other brands.
