UYN® shoes are a revolution – probably the most technologically progressive shoes ever created. Their development was geared towards a single goal: making freedom tangible – at every step and every movement.


Freedom knows no bounds? Well, we have set certain limits – but only where it makes sense, of course. Our patented production method opens a whole new range of possibilities in shoe development. Although the shoe is made from a single piece, individual parts such as the heel, tip and sides can be partially stiffened, while others such as the upper section can retain their extreme elasticity. This makes the shoe very easy to slip on while also ensuring it provides the required stability. Stability and flexibility – perfectly combined.


A new form of stability – unique and patented. UYN® BaseSupport allows us to strike the perfect balance between stiffness and flexibility of the sole in the knitted shoe segment. The innovative midsole is positioned inside the double layer system. This improves support, optimises the rolling motion of the foot and ensures shoe has a long life.


Freedom means going your own way, making your own decisions, setting your own limits. It’s a path that more and more people are choosing. With UYN® shoes, we provide the perfect partner for the modern city lifestyle: a shoe with a strong, stable base that still offers maximum flexibility in the upper part. Unlimited freedom of movement guaranteed.


UYN® shoes combine the contradictory: flexibility plus stability, a feeling of nature even on asphalt. This is made possible by our new environment-friendly manufacturing approach – made in Italy.







Sometimes small changes are suffi cient to achieve a big impact. This is a start. But it wasn’t enough for us. We changed our mindset. Adopting a more radical approach.

Made from one piece

Zero material waste

Reduced to the essentials

Made in Italy

While conventional manufacturers try to reduce waste, our shoe generates no waste at all in production. This is made possible by a completely new manufacturing method using circular knitting. We put this into practice using our hightech machinery in Italy. A shoe made in one piece – without waste, reduced to the essentials. For more than just a good feeling on your feet.


A feeling of nature from the word go. With every UYN® shoe we produce, we make a promise: maximum comfort – everywhere and at all times. And what could be more comfortable than embedding your foot in the finest Merino wool? MerinoSurround is the name of our manufacturing method, making it possible to use Merino wool on the inside of the shoe – no matter what performance material is used on the outside. Merino wool is odour-inhibiting and highly effective in absorbing moisture. So the shoe can also be worn barefoot. A new feeling with every step.


Fibers that performs. Naturally.

Reducing our environmental impact has been a top priority since day one. Natural fibers are renewable, and inherently biodegradable. Replacing petroleum-based materials with natural ones, and inventing alternatives that don’t yet exist is one of our daily challenge.


100% bio-based
100% functional

This fibre is made for the next generation. A generation when it is not enough being 100% natural in order to be sustainable. Natex has no adverse effect on the human or animal or food chain. It is made from castor oil seeds, they are not a food source and grow in dry region. On top of it, Natex is full of performance. Incredibly light and elastic and absolutely fast drying. A game changer for every sportswear product.

  • 25% less CO2 than polyamides
  • Low water consumption
  • 25% lighter than polyester
  • 50% faster drying
  • Naturally bacteriostatic


A miracle of nature

Merino wool is famous for its minimal weight and seductively soft feeling on the skin. We further optimizes these outstanding material characteristics through a special manufacturing technology that combines merino and Fibresist to achieve a pleasantly soft and a quick drying result.

Cruelty free

We only use Merino wool from South Africa, where the cruel practice of mulesing (a process during which parts of a sheep’s bends are cut off) is illegal.


The super-wool from the Himalayas

The Yak lives between Mongolia, the Tibetan plateau and the slopes of the Himalayas up to 6,000 meters above sea level. In order to survive harsh winters, this large bovine has developed a very thick, long fur that keeps it warm even at -50° C.

  • Precious: Yak wool is among the most precious wool in the world
  • Temperature regulating: Suitable for low temperatures
  • Soft: With a diameter ranging from 16 to 20 microns, the softness of Yak fibre is similar to that of Cahsmere
  • Breathable: It absorbs up to 30% of its weight in moisture, performing better than most man-made fibres.
  • Odor-resistant: the anti-microbial properties of Yak wool reduce odor formation
  • Hypoallergenic: Yak wool does not contain lanolin which is the cause of most allergic reactions”


Light, fresh, natural

Paper Cotton is a 100% plant-based technical yarn with amazing active performances. It is derived from Manila hemp, following the traditional Japanese “Washi” paper making process, and blended with cotton to increase lightness and freshness. The result is a natural material that, thanks to its specific weight of 0.5 g/cm3, is three times lighter than cotton (1.54 g/cm3).

The combination of these two yarns allows Paper Cotton to maintain all the properties of paper fibers: great ability to absorb moistur, excellent bacteriostatic effect preventing the formation of bad odors, shielding UV rays that are harmful to health.

Manila Hemp

Manila Hemp used to produce Paper Cotton yarn is grown without the use of pesticides and its cultivation is of great help to native biodiversity.


Wood has never been so comfortable

The wood obtained from Eucalyptus trees becomes ECOLYPT, a 100% sustainable natural fiber with exceptional properties. The characteristics of the pulp of the wood from which it is obtained give ECOLYPT strength and great elasticity.

Its structure is composed of very small hydrophilic fibers that absorb up to 50% more moisture than cotton. In addition, the fiber is highly breathable, minimizes the formation of odors and thanks to its temperature regulating properties is able to provide a cooling effect in hot temperatures and warm in cold days.

100% sustainable

The entire production process of ECOLYPT fiber is characterized by a closed loop: all water and enzymes are recovered and reused in a further production process.


100% recycled high-insulation padding

We use our collected textile waste to create AIRNEST, a new high-performance material for padding jackets and shoes.

From waste to resource

When we produce a garment we produce a very small amount of waste (cuttings, fibres … ) which in one year becomes large: 29 tonnes. Nevertheless, we use our advanced filtering system to collect even the smallest microparticles. Our textile scraps do not become environmentally harmful waste, but new resources. We fully recycle them in cooperation with a specialized company.

Sustainable performance

Thanks to its micro-structure with air nests, obtained from the special intertwining of fibers, AIRNEST is able to trap more warm air than traditional synthetic padding and to create a layer with high thermal insulating power.
