Shoes for Better Lives
Handcrafted footwear with soles made from up-cycled rubber tires. An initiative that provides sustainable livelihood for cobblers.
Paaduks is an attempt to make eco friendly footwear, we also envision a prosperous cobbler community. Our footwear are made of natural fabric like cotton and jute, vegan material, and soles made from up-cycled rubber such as discarded tires, used conveyor belts, old rubber mats and so on. Upcycling of discarded rubber to make soles does not involve any chemical processes.
We believe that our cobblers are the backbone of our venture. They deserve to be remunerated for their skills and hard work which makes our products the comfortable stylish footwear they are today. We thus pay our cobblers a fair price for their efforts in an attempt to stabilize their financial condition and reduce exploitation of this specialized profession. More importantly, we pay them on time as well as invest in the production.
