Koio founders Johannes Quodt and Chris Wichert bonded in grad school over their shared home country (Germany), height (supertall) and love of luxury kicks (sneakerhead level). Together, the duo traveled to the legendary Le Marche region of Italy, aka shoe country, seeking the world's most skilled cobblers to hand make the streamlined sneaks of their dreams. The result? Understated designs like their signature white high-tops in tumbled pebble-grain leather with fine suede accents. For the best fit, we recommend that half sizes and narrow feet size down. Leather, suede upper. Leather lining. Rubber sole. Made in Italy.
