HILOS

HILOS was created to change the way the world makes and to fix wasteful practices. Each year 24 billion shoes are made, using 48 trillion gallons of fresh water, only for 1 in every 5 pairs to get thrown directly into the landfill. HILOS is bringing the personal back to shoes, conserving the environment while creating bold exciting zero-waste on-demand footwear. Using 3D printing technology, these products blend modern digital design with timeless techniques of generational local craftsmen. Made for you.

IMPACT

On a mission to create exciting footwear without the environmental footprint.

VERTICALE VALUES

  • Reducing Waste

    HILOS creates zero waste due to their small batch, made to order nature and their recycling program: allowing customers to return old HILOS shoes to be recycled into new pairs. Every pair saves 85% of water via their 3D printing methods.

  • Responsible Materials

    HILOS clogs are made with responsibly sourced and dyed leathers that hail from Krumenauer tannery– which has a 90%+ transparency rating courtesy of the Leather Working Group (LWG)

  • Ethical Production

    HILOS values the workers behind the shoe as much as they do the shoe itself. All HILOS employees are paid a living wage, assured that every step is fairly paved.

  • Local Craftsmanship

    All of HILOS's products are made with geographically close raw materials, by local artisans, and are designed and made in Portland, OR.
