The Golo brand has been around since 1915. An American company, and a great example of American ingenuity, style, and innovation. Golo was known for experimenting with materials not traditionally used in footwear, such as cork, stretch fabrics, lucite, vinyl, and Gore-tex.
The Golo dna is about Individuality, trend-driven, styled, sometimes edgy footwear. Thoughtful details and special touches make each shoe truly distinct, unique, covetable, effortless, and versatile. Shoes for a complete lifestyle. Bedroom to boardroom. Rocker to boho. Trendsetter to timeless.
It was arguably Golo who invented the iconic Go-go Boot in the early '60s. Barbra Streisand was featured in the August 1965 issue in a multi-page fashion spread wearing Golo Go-go boots in white patent.
Our Sincere Commitment to Sustainability
We really care about the environment and our planet. We all have a role to play in making better choices in terms of utilizing resources wherever and whenever we can. We use materials and components that are carefully researched to minimize our environmental impact, and promote sustainably-made fashion. For example leathers that use a lead-free tanning process, lasts that are made of recycled plastic, and components that are recyclable.
We hand-craft all of our shoes in sustainably small, family-run factories in Florence, Italy, and an American family-owned artisan in Guangzhou, China. Our factories are 100% compliant and ethical, they pay fair wages and have safe working conditions. We have had long-term relationships with these small factories. Our shoes are very hand made and we have only small production runs.
