All our shoes, even your sandals, are built to last. We use a uni-shank on every pair. This fluted spine inside the insole gives the shoe structure and strength. It’s not something you can see with the naked eye, but as shoemakers, it’s part of our code.
HUMAN’S IN MIND
Your shoes have been made with breathable, absorbent, antibacterial linings and socking underfoot. This premium material has a beautiful mat feel and is the best choice for skin health.
The soles of your shoes are made, by hand, with suede resin board, that is fully recyclable. Leather is a biological material which is naturally biodegradable. It is a legacy product because it is long-lasting and it’s not produced with the same damaging chemical intensity of synthetics.
We aspire to mastery. It is a lifelong pursuit. Our design ethos is to revive the classics with minimalism and sustainability. We combine a flair for modern aesthetics with traditional shoemaking techniques and craftsmanship.
With creative courage, honourable business practices, and a belief in the power of kindness – Nēo seeks to build long-lasting connections with both suppliers and customers.
Our guiding principles are:
Courage · Curiosity · Compassion
For Nēo the African dream is the dignity of self-sufficiency. We believe in social justice and play our part by playing FAIR. All our staff are paid above the minimum wage; are legitimately registered and we are focused on professional development.
