On the road for six weeks, living out of one suitcase, and collecting souvenirs along the way, brothers, Christian and Kilian, found it more and more difficult to close their luggage when a new destination called. They got talking about traveling lighter and with one quick look at their open suitcase, the problem was clear.

They were living in flip flops, which were ideal for beach days and casual drinks, but they did not offer the support for all-day wear. Their runners served for performance, but were painted with logos and did not dress to impress.

Inspired by the textiles and colors they found on a trip to Southeast Asia and with absolutely zero shoe-making experience, they set out to make a change.
The end result: footwear that balances form with function and personality with performance. Versatile wear that fits everywhere. With an emphasis on sustainability, style, and quality, PATARA crafts shoes that you can rely on for all occasions and outings.
