New Brand Spotlight: OTZ

OTZ’s story started not so long ago (2005, to be exact). Ludo, creative director of a leading athletic lifestyle brand, came across an article written by Petr Hlavacek describing the oldest shoes ever found. These belonged to Oetzi, the iceman, and dated all the way back to 3300 B.C. Now that’s a long time ago!

antimicrobial shoes, casual lifestyle, casual lifestyle footwear, clogs, comfort footwear, comfortable shoes, CorkLite, new brand spotlight, OTZ, OTZ footwearConsidering the time period, the shoes were quite remarkable—made of deerskin stitched to a bearskin sole with an internal woven net, filled with dried grass and moss for warmth and comfort. Inspired by Oetzi’s creativeness, Ludo was intrigued by redesigning this iconic shoe incorporating today’s trend, comfort, and technology. Thus the OeTZI3300 sneaker was born!

Ludo and his crew created a unique piece of art, utilizing a cork footbed technology, CorkLite®, that is made to make your feet smile—true barefoot comfort. CorkLite® is made for an all day, everyday adventure. The antimicrobial properties of the cork reduce bacterial build-up and allow you to wear the shoes with or without socks. OTZ® sneakers are designed for total comfort and a maximum organic fit. Just like any other sneaker, they will feel snug at first so a breaking-in period is recommended.

Fast forwarding to May 2010, OTZ was on the rise to revolutionize the industry. In such a short amount of time, and a slight shift in name from OeTZI3300 to OTZshoes, the brand has become recognized worldwide and continues to gain incredible momentum daily. OTZ is a happy family of workers who share the same passion and intensity for this brand, and the footwear they’ve created.

Josef Seibel: The European Comfort Shoe

With more than 125 years of shoemaking under their belt, Josef Seibel is one of Europe’s longest established shoe manufacturers. This family-owned business started in a small German village and is now in its fourth generation under Carl-August Seibel.

All of their sandals, clogs, shoes and boots are expertly handcrafted using the Josef Seibel comfort concepts. Using only the best quality leathers and crafted using traditional methods, most of Josef Seibel’s shoes are still produced within their own factories in Europe.

Traditional hand stitching offers increased flexibility, increased durability, and an original appearance.  Josef Seibel likes to say that it gives their shoes a broken in feel right out of the box. 

Strobel construction is also another core feature of Josef Seibel footwear.  The word "Strobel" describes the specific way of stitching upper leathers and lining to the insole of footwear.  The Strobel construction offers a much higher flexibility and strength than many other types of construction utilized in the shoe industry today.  As Josef Seibel said, "Our name on the outside, our knowledge on the inside".

After more than 125 years of shoe-making experience, we’d say that’s a lot of knowledge that you can see and feel with every pair of Josef Seibel shoes! Experience it for yourself this holiday season!
