Porto is a small city in the north of Portugal and has become a world benchmark in the footwear industry. iGUANEYE shoes are made in Porto with each shoe being hand-pressed in the factory. The innovative design brings together the latest technology with traditional wisdom from the Amazon.
The cork soles in the Freshoe and Jungle LUX have a great story behind them. The trees are not cut down or damaged when the cork is harvested, and they can be harvested every 9 years for the lifetime of the tree (roughly 270 years!). These forests are a unique habitat in the Iberian Peninsula and the refuge of various endangered species. Cork is also easily recyclable. This makes the cork in iGUANEYE shoes sustainable.
