THIN

FLEXIBLE

WIDE

FLAT

Your foot is a sensor. Thin soles increase overall sensitivity by allowing your nerves to detect pressure from the ground.

GET YOUR ORIGOS

Our flexible soles allow the thirty-three joints in each foot to work as one, boosting strength and reducing stiffness. 

GET YOUR ORIGOS

Experience the room your feet need to spread out naturally. This improves stability and gives you superior balance. 

GET YOUR ORIGOS

No heel drop encourages correct posture. It relieves abnormal pressure by keeping the heel and ball of your foot at the same height.

Sustainability

About 300 million pairs of shoes end up in landfills each year, with most taking 30-40 years to decompose because they’re predominantly made up of plastic and polymers. At Origo, we’re doing it differently, starting with the shoe.

Our shoes are made with natural materials that we source locally. There isn’t one perfect material; each has its own benefits and environmental cost. We believe in transparency so you can make an informed decision.

Our materials

Cotton Canvas

Biodegradable, vegan, breathable, durable, machine-washable, anti-mycotic. Cotton needs a lot of water to grow, but it produces the lowest carbon emissions out of any material.

Natural Leather

Durable, breathable, ability to mold to your foot’s shape, and moisture absorbing. The local tanneries we source from have certification from the Leather Working Group, the world’s largest leather sustainability program that trains companies on best practices to reduce their environmental impact.

Vegan Cactus Leather

Vegan, flexible, water-resistant, stain-resistant, and biodegradable. Our organic cactus is farmed using little water and sequesters carbon from the atmosphere. Responsibly harvested in Mexico.

Corn Starch

To offset our use of oil-based polymers, our soles are partially made of a biopolymer made from corn starch, providing value-added functionality such as improved oxygen barriers and biodegradability.

Going further

Doing it differently goes beyond the materials that our shoes are made of. Every step of the way, we take sustainability seriously, so that you can feel good about shoes that feel good.

+ We minimize the need for long-haul transport by keeping our entire supply and production chain within North America, near our production facility in León, Mexico.

+ We assembled our team of artisans from the first to the last stitch to ensure ethical working standards.

+ We use smart packaging solutions and materials, to be easier on our planet— from garden-compostable wrappers to shoebox-less kraft shippers.

+ We donate to help with reforestation of the Amazon for every pair sold. One Tree Planted has been responsible for replanting acres of rainforest since 2014!
