KOEL is a Dutch shoe brand that started in 2006, initially focused on children’s footwear. Over the years, KOEL has expanded its range to include shoes for babies, women, and men, all while maintaining its commitment to outstanding fit, quality, and sustainability.
In 2018, KOEL4KIDS began focusing on Barefoot shoes with the aim of creating not only comfortable shoes but also offers healthy and sustainable footwear. To achieve this, they developed lasts and soles with different widths, even for the smallest kids. The brand uses ecological and certified materials like bio leathers, chrome-free linings, merino wool, and vegan materials.
Some characteristics of the KOEL shoes include:
- Quality: KOEL uses the best materials available and often develops even better ones themselves.
- Fitting: The brand offers multi-width fittings to ensure a perfect fit for every child.
- Innovation: KOEL has pioneered groundbreaking research in shoe lasts and soles, making them a leading producer in Europe.
- Design: The shoes are designed specifically for different stages of walking, providing maximum comfort and sensory feedback while remaining stylish.
- Sustainability: KOEL is committed to using ethical and sustainable materials, techniques, and processes in manufacturing their shoes.
With a rebranding and reorganization in 2021, KOEL now offers Barefoot shoes for women and will soon introduce a range for men.
