I started this business as an ordinary shoe salesman. Too many times in this particular industry I've seen brands crash and burn – for various reasons.
That’s why I had this dream, to create something special on the market – to create my own shoe from A to Z.”
I began by reading books about ancient history where I found references to handwoven shoe techniques. Furthermore, these shoes were all made from local materials.
So, in 2005 I set to work organizing our first collection. We released a comfortable and breathable shoe made from woven elastic.
Rock Spring shoes found fans on the European market first. Now they are worn by people all over the world, in 12 countries, and on 4 continents. That is how my second dream came to fruition - I can travel. For work, I explore many places and cultures, and I am constantly learning new things.
We now sell hundreds of thousands of Rock Spring shoes worldwide, but we are still a small team. We like it that way. We create great shoes for people who just want to be themselves, who enjoy life and travel. People who live to be free.
