KIBO: Meet the planet-friendly sneakers. Hand-crafted from innovative materials such as apple waste from juicing farms, leather trimmings & post-consumer plastics, these sneakers were designed with the environment in mind.

Launched in 2020, KIBO was born with a mission to give waste new hope and life second chances. KIBO, means ‘hope’ in Japanese, and brings a new promise to create a pair of sneakers that are ‘Kind to the planet & kind to your feet.’ As an advocate for transparency, KIBO ensures every step is made with transparency and fair trade in mind. For every pair sold, a portion of the proceeds is donated to Compassion First, a not-for-profit organization that works tirelessly to help victims of human-trafficking in Indonesia.

Through KIBO’s expansion, they have recently launched a new product line, Light Treads, designed for frontline workers who are on their feet for prolong hours. Positioned as a part of the staff’s uniform, the shoes have global certifications on slip & oil resistance to protect workers from injuries. They launched this with 5-star hotel groups, and have aggressive plans to expand sectors such as retail and healthcare. In addition to eco-friendly materials, the company have also embraced the “social” aspects to enhance employees’ health and wellbeing; the first player to combine Sustainability, safety and style here in Asia.
