Meet the Team

We combine the latest tech with a sustainable approach to creation and testing to help people feel (and look) great in our shoes.

Whether reaching a PB, rallying on the tennis court or strolling around town, to us, it’s about more than the shoes. It’s about intention. Because every decision could be the difference between someone Dreaming On, or not.

Welcome to Footwear Product Creation

Exploring sustainable dyeing techniques,

building relationships with the next generation of fans, or overhauling our testing process – there’s a lot we get involved in.

We love to stay active to bond as a team

hikes, runs, ski retreats. Nothing beats getting out and about to find inspiration together.

In Footwear Creation, we get variety thanks to the seasons

waterproof trail boots or summer tennis shoes, there’s always something to test.

Unlike other brands, we aren't just executioners out here in Vietnam, we give ideas as well. Sometimes they have a new idea in Zurich and we might find a process to make it more efficient and we share that.

Successful creation is all about thinking differently. We celebrate crazy ideas and face challenges head-on to shape better, more innovative products and inspire a better brand.
