  • Movement.

    This is so crucial for us. We don’t believe in standstill. In accepting a status quo just because it’s been done this way for ever. We try to make things better. Some might call this starry-eyed or naïve”. We call it going back to the roots. Such as fairness. Care. Respect. Friendship. And yes: Fun!

    Awareness.

    Fashion lovers all around the world have been becoming more and more conscious about the way their clothes have been produced. “Who made my sneakers?” “Who made my shirt?” The good news is: We do know. The people who work for us aren’t numbers on a balance sheet or a cost factor for us. We appreciate their skills, their commitment, and their history. We don’t look down on anybody – we work together. Grow together. Learn from each other. It’s a process. The journey is the reward, and while we’re at it, we really enjoy the ride.

  • Evolution.

    Ethletic began as a venture to bring the world’s first fairly manufactured soccer balls onto the market. A pioneering achievement in an industry that was extensively known for child labor and inhumane working conditions. Since then, we have evolved into a sneaker company relying solely on Fairtrade certified organic cotton and sustainable rubber. What’s next on our agenda? Easy to wear clothes and bags to go with our sneakers. Naturally, we use Fairtrade cotton only. And this, we promise, is not the end.

    Passion.

    We love to create ethical alternatives to conventional products. And it gives us a high to learn that you like them too. This is the fun part: There is no restriction in the way we see fair fashion. We see challenges we are willing to accept. Like producing an all-natural rainproof material which is vegan and sustainable. Is it hard from time to time? You bet. But we are in this together. And the vista is so worth the climb.
