Modern comfort inspired by the design of the oldest shoe ever found, OTZ is a modern comfort brand, born on the beaches of 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.

When you get the right size....awesome
I wear a 9-9.5 and order these in a 40. They make my big feet look small. You can also wear them as a mule. The heel folds down. Euro sizes are tricky. But once you get it figured out it'll be worth it.
Very cozy
The Goudron Grey is a lovely color, Size 40 is what I ordered and fits like a normal size nine. One shoelace snapped at first wearing, cutting the other to match, solved that issue. These are lovely boots, plan to wear them a lot.
