Experience the perfect blend of style and comfort with Matao by Grounded People. Whether browsing through farmers' markets or catching up with friends over coffee, these shoes offer the perfect balance of functionality and fashion, ensuring you look great and feel comfortable all day.
Almost entirely made by hand, our unisex shoes are produced in Brazil at the world's only 100% vegan shoe factory. Each shoe represents our environmental and social commitments from the ground up. We’ve gone to great lengths to ensure our shoes are as ecologically sound as possible and that those who make them work in safe working conditions and are paid premium wages to support their families and the communities they live in.
Embrace the future of footwear.
Because Every Step Matters.
Fashion has become an unsustainable industry, with major brands choosing to produce products that are here today, but in a landfill tomorrow. We think that’s wrong. That’s why we’ve partnered with Retraced. They’ve seen the future. It’s sustainable, and it’s transparent. Retraced is an ethical platform that gives us important information about all the suppliers in our manufacturing network.
With a firm understanding of where our materials are sourced from, we are able to make decisions that meet the needs of our customers. It allows us to determine how materials are sourced, the environmental impact of every point in the supply chain, and ultimately all the data needed to make a choice that meets our ethical and environmental standards. We set out to build a new standard and make a positive contribution to our planet and its future.
I love the shoes, they look very nice and stable and seem well fabricated and they are lightweight. And the color fits with everything. Unfortunately I have to send them back because the shoe is too long and the fit too narrow for my feet. (although they are a bit spacey around heels, but I have slim heels so most boots are too wide around my heels as well) So if your feet are narrow and slim on the front and you have long toes I can definitely recommend these shoes. My feet are 25,6 long and I ordered size 40. I am still waiting for a reply for sending them back but if they would have fitted I would definitely keep them! And I hope they will come with sneakers with a more loose fit! : D
Not only do the shoes look great but I feel great knowing I’m wearing sustainable shoes
I've been getting so many compliments, the insole fitting is so comfortable and the neutral colour goes with almost everything in my wardrobe!
