A Berlin/NYC-based sister-duo has teamed up to launch MATRIARCH, a new gender neutral footwear line offering masculine and androgynous styles in a wider range of sizes. Check out their Kickstarter campaign to learn more about their story and design process:
MATRIARCH also believes in sustainability which is why the shoes are made exclusively from vegetable-tanned leather. Vegetable-tanned leather is leather that is colored using tree bark tannins, resulting in a natural look and feel.
There are four styles: two low-cut shoes inspired by the classic Longwing Brogue style, and two boots that express an understated elegance through simple but high-quality construction and materials. The leather soles have a stacked leather heel, and the zigzag soles are made from a durable Vibram rubber.
