EKN ASH BLACK
EKN interpreted the sleek sports car design of the Bolide into a sneaker - the refined lines combined with minimalist design give the shoe an absolutely unique look. A minimum of subtle shapes and decent seams as well as our characteristic heel-loop form a shoe in a class of its own. The handmade production from Portugal ensures durability and great wearing comfort. The EVA sole, made from recycled materials and recycled chloroprene rubber, provides responsive cushioning and long-lasting lightness when walking.

Ekn footwear was founded as a viable alternative for a global footwear industry flooded with poorly fabricated synthetic shoes, harmful both to the environment and the people involved – fabrication workers and consumers. Therefore Ekn are not afraid to take responsibility for everyone involved in the process and experience of making, shipping and wearing our products. Each shoe is handmade by experienced Portuguese craftsmen, using biological materials - vegetable tanned lather, organic cotton, and recycled rubber - from the highest quality suppliers. There are zero harmful chemicals used in manufacturing process. Every style is produced in limited quantities to ensure minimal environmental impact and maximum attention to detail.
