Nature, style, quality and design are the key components in a WODEN sneaker, it's what the WODEN philisophy is all about. The name stands for WOrks of DENmark – WODEN. Founded in 2013 by Carsten Holm and Peter Hildebrandt whoe have a passion for creating quality sneakers with a strong appeal. They wanted to bend the rules and make an old dream come true – the first pure and true Scandinavian Sneaker. As shoemakers with a strong track record of bringing shoes to the market, they knew that nature and Scandinavian design combined with a sneaker’s DNA and genuine quality at a midmarket price – would be the right platform to bring the WODEN movement to people around the world.
