Inkkas is founded on the principles of fair trade and global philanthropy. That means our shoes are crafted with respect for the environment and the people who make them. When Inkkas was founded in 2012, we partnered with skilled artisan shoemakers in Peru (in spanish, lovingly referred to as “buen zapateros") to create our first classic sneaker using authentic Peruvian textiles. And as we honor our roots in Peru with our brand name, we have expanded to work around the world with highly-skilled and ethical partners to develop our product lines.
Country by country, we have drawn inspiration, sourced materials, and developed sustainable relationships. Then and now, our highest priority is that our partners throughout the supply chain are paid fair living wages and work in environments that prioritize health, safety, and respect.
