"Papoutsi invites you for an everyday barefoot experience,
so you can feel the benefits"

Why, for who & when?

"Papoutsi is something special, something extra, in addition to other footwear with a protective sole. Each footwear has its own, unique, and most ideal moment of use.

So does Papoutsi shoes."


You choose Papoutsi for precisely that special and extra added value, like;

  • the (vegetable tanned real leather or vegan) material
  • the natural tones
  • 100% EU from start to finish real handicraft from our Dutch studio.

  • or perhaps because of the lack of an extra sole.
