MINIMALIST DESIGNS MADE TO FIT THE NATURAL SHAPE OF YOUR FOOT
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.
