HANDCRAFTED ✘ GLOBALLY INSPIRED
We believe our shoes should reflect the journeys we take, as well as the journeys we dream to take. That is why we travel the world to develop our exclusive shoe collections. It is our passion to create fun, beautiful, handcrafted footwear that reflects the beauty of this world. The result is that each pair of Inkkas has a unique story worth sharing -- stories of the life and nature that inhabit this world and the cultures that celebrate it. We hope you fall in love, because these shoes have traveled the globe to get to you!
In an effort to keep our handcrafted products unique and to minimize waste, we limit our productions to small batch quantities. This means with each collection, you have the opportunity to purchase a rare, quality, and limited-edition product that can be especially yours.
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 sneakers 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.
ONE SHOE ✘ ONE TREE
We create footwear that celebrates the beauty of nature, art, traditions and cultures all around the world. The globe as our muse, we are committed to using our work to improve our environment and enrich our communities through social and environmental awareness and action. As part of the OneShoeOneTree project, and in partnership with Trees For The Future, (trees.org), Inkkas has planted one tree for every shoe purchase. With your help, Inkkas is helping reforest the world and develop sustainable agricultural infrastructure for communities around the globe.

This means we have offset 18,806.098 metric tons of carbon (CO2)
2,116,125 gallons of gasoline consumed
20,807,132 pounds of coal burned
2,369 homes' energy use for one year
"The math: With roughly 2,500 trees per one acre forest, 351,492 trees equals 130.02 acres. The average one acre forest sequesters 144.64 tons of CO2, so the trees we planted have offset 18,806 metric tons of CO21"
Just like our designs and products, our team is a diverse collective of individuals - artists, designers, builders, and dreamers - who have rallied together across cultures and continents to craft our collections and build this unique brand mission. Our team brings perspectives from around the world through rich histories, experiences, traditions and cultures. We are united by our shared belief in the transformative power of globally inclusive representation in art and stories, which come together in our artful footwear designs.
