iGUANEYE is an avant-garde minimal footwear company rooted in ancient practices. Their products embody barefoot comfort, allowing your feet to feel grounded. Drawing inspiration from the Amazonian Indians, who would coat their feet in tree latex for protection, iGUANEYE has innovated a second-skin concept of footwear. It marries minimal material use with efficient protection, akin to walking barefoot but without giving up the shielding your feet need.
Responsibly crafted in Portugal, iGUANEYE’s footwear makes use of high-quality, ecological materials, epitomizing sustainability. With a minimalistic approach in design, these shoes are built for durability. The primary structure of the shoes doesn’t demand any seams or glue, and after a long lifespan, you can disassemble them for easy recycling.
- Comfort: The ergonomic design conforms to your feet contours, providing a snug and highly comfortable fit, which doesn’t impede movement.
- Ventilation: A unique ventilation system, comprising six openings and channels, allows fresh air circulation under the foot arch.
- Natural Materials: The removable insoles are primarily composed of cork and a small amount of natural latex, with a leather coating. Cork naturally prevents bacteria, absorbs sweat, and combats odors.
iGUANEYE was founded by French designer Olivier Taco, who is at the forefront of footwear innovation. Collaborating with companies within a 40km radius around Porto, iGUANEYE has built a close-knit community committed to sustainable, high-quality footwear production.
