Original contemporary footwear designed to aid & restore feet to optimal function. Manually crafted by artisan shoemaker Braxton Garma.
Kōnea in the Hawaiian language translates to "restore to health". Every shoe that is crafted is designed as an aid to restore your feet back to optimal function. All shoes are made with flat minimal soles, natural toe box, flexible and constructed around a human foot shaped last (shoe form). The ultimate goal is being able to live barefoot without any aches and pains. With that in mind my design process is simple: innovate & craft with integrity. KŌNEA FOOTWEAR was conceived because morally I didn't agree with the giants of the shoe industry. So, everything that is available to be purchased in the online shop is made when ordered or produced in small batch quantities to reduce material waste.
