Sustainable Practices

Responsibility for us means designing with intention from concept to production. It means making products that not only last but have an end of life plan. We encourage you to return your HILOS because every part of your shoes is made to be disassembled and reused. In exchange, we offer a sweet discount for next time. We started HILOS to chart a new path and to show that we don’t need 200 liters of water to make a pair of shoes, nor do they need to be made overseas and shipped to warehouses to sit in inventory.

With one out of five pairs of shoes produced going straight to the landfill, a quarter of the worlds chemical use, and 20% of all water pollution, the fashion industry is on track to becoming the leader in the world’s pollution. Enough is enough.

To us, sustainability means making longer lasting products that are engineered for disassembly and designed for reusability. It means thinking of the complete life cycle starting at the concept stage. It’s not an after-thought or a badge of honor, it’s a lifestyle. With responsibility comes honesty, and we’re not perfect. We still have a ways to go on our journey to circularity. A second life is good, but complete biodegradability is better. And so are regenerative farming approaches, that allow tanneries to become carbon positive.

This is just the beginning for us. It’s not enough to be carbon neutral. We believe in building a future of personal, made-to-demand, regenerative products, and that starts with shoes.
