About Us


OTZ 
takes you on a journey back in time to a prehistoric man call "Oetzi" who has been carbon dated to 3300 B.C.  His mummified body, unveiled from his frozen state by "global warming", was wearing nothing more than the basic essentials he needed for survival - gear for protection and warmth, as well as a unique pair of shoes. 

Inspired by the simple yet functional design of Oetzi's shoes, our need to be environmentally responsible and to promote the art of well being, OTZ is remastering these basic essentials from the past in a fresh and relevant way.

Breaking in Period: Our shoes are designed for total comfort. They may feel snug at first, but please allow a breaking in period to allow our foot bed to gradually compress and conform to your foot, as well as for the leather or suede upper to adapt to your foot’s contours. The more you wear them, the more comfortable they get. When choosing our shearling lined styles, or if you’re in between sizes, it’s recommended to select one size up for an ideal fit.

Without a universal footwear size chart that is shared between all footwear brands, the best and ideal way to measure your shoe size is using a ruler that has a CM marker. Place this ruler up against a wall, place your foot on top of it while having your heel against the same wall. The CM that is shown from your longest toe, should be the most accurate sizing of your foot. Using this CM you can easily convert to the corresponding EU size.
