We are proud to introduce the first installment from our OTZ x Santa Claus Foundation collaboration. Inspired by the colorful designs of the indigenous Finno-Ugric people inhabiting the Arctic area of Lapland "The Sami Tribes". A portion of the proceeds goes to the Santa Claus Foundation to help improve the well-being of the children of the world.
Inspired from closed toe Mediterranean leisure jute footwear, our Espadrille has a deconstructed architecture that is lightweight and breathable yet fashionable with our premium materials.
LAST: Classic remastered Last provides a premium fit with a natural foot shape.
BOTTOM: Our monogram rubber outsole is co-molded with natural fiber jute for extra strength provides grip and durability.
FOOTBED: CORKcushion™ PolyU removable footbed provides a fully contoured fit with maximum support, a pronounced arch and toe grip with heel cupping that will gradually conform to the foot in a neutral position. The open cell characteristics of PolyU provides antimicrobial properties that reduce order build up. A cork laminate provides a natural interface with the foot.
UPPER: Moritz Polyesterwool blend textile quarter panels from Italy and lined with microfiber suede for durability and additional comfort.
BRANDING: The OTZ tattoo is printed on the lateral side and the OTZSHOES logo is printed on the CORKcushion cork cover.
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.
