eco canvas or nappa leather?

whether you prefer the lightweight, water-resistant and durable properties of eco canvas, or the supple and moldable texture of nappa leather, the true delight comes when you slip them onto your feet. both materials are eco-conscious; eco canvas is made from 100% recycled discarded bottles and packaging, while nappa leather is sourced from tanneries with a gold rating from the leather working group for their excellence in environmental and labor practices. eco canvas is available in four colors, while nappa leather is available in two.

cwic = quick

The word ‘cwic' has its roots in Old English and translates to 'quick.' It has links to Latin and Greek words associated with living and life. This term accurately describes our goal of creating footwear solutions that are fast to slip on and off, suitable for all day/everyday and for every occasion/situation.

last things first.

the shoe last is the foundation of every shoe and is crucial in the shoemaking process. the shoemaker begins by developing the shoe around the last, which determines the shoe's fit, performance, ergonomics, and style. the last's shape plays a significant role in creating a shoe that is suitable for its intended purpose. even if the shoe design looks great, it will not be functional if the last is not appropriate for the shoe’s function.

we have created our cwic shoes based on our own prototype last to ensure a perfect fit.

zero drop

‘zero drop’ there is no height difference between the forefoot and the heel, allowing the foot to perform as designed

flat last bottom

flat bottom of the last allows the foot to sit flush with the ground, providing greater stability

low toe spring

low toe spring to allow toes to
sit in a natural postion.

wider toe box

wider toe box to allow space
for your toes to splay and recoil

dont take our word for it.

"I bought a pair of CWIC leather shoes online.
I checked my shoe size, and when they arrived, they fitted perfectly.

I was looking for something classic with a simple twist and they are exactly what I was looking for - comfortable to wear all day to work, gym and the cafe. Great design and love the packaging!

I also like they are made from environmentally friendly, natural materials. Thank you CWIC. 😊"
