INUIKII is an independently owned luxury footwear brand with sustainability at its heart. Designed in Switzerland, each pair of shoes are handmade in Europe using only European materials, meaning that each pair is unique and finished to the highest of standards.
INUIKII was founded by Cinzia Maag and her sons Danilo and Alessio in 2013, initially as a brand for the colder months, when both style and function is key. INUIKII has since gone on to make state-of-the-art curated footwear for all seasons, keeping not only durability and style, but also sustainability and practicality in mind. INUIKII has fast become an iconic brand loved by style leaders, such as Olivia Palermo and Mimi Moocher, and the high-performance craftmanship represents the brand’s commitment to combine practical form and function with timeless style.
Both the autumn/winter and spring/summer collections feature INUIKII’s patented recyclable 100% natural rubber sole, providing not only comfort but also an extreme grip for all weather conditions. The design team at INUIKII are constantly looking for new materials that are sustainable and eco-friendly. INUIKII is proud to be one of the first footwear brands to use BANANATEX, which is the world’s first durable, waterproof fabric made purely from banana plants. Cultivated in the Philippines with a natural ecosystem of sustainable forestry, the plant requires no chemical treatments and is fully biodegradable.
The brand has also recently introduced its very first fully vegan shoe, made solely of wastage from Italian vineyards. Utilising grape skins, stalks and seeds that would otherwise be discarded during the wine making process. “Quality, fun and sustainability are always kept front of mind when we design a new collection together. We
love to experiment with fine-quality leathers and unusual materials. We like to see ourselves as one big family – celebrating the unique individualities and strengths each of us bring to INUIKII. Our ultimate aim is to allow the wearer of each of our shoes to feel stylish and comfortable.” – Cinzia and Alessio Maag, Founder & Creative Director and Chief Creative Officer
