WODEN is a Scandinavian sneaker brand with a focus on Scandinavian design values, high-quality natural materials and great value for money. We believe in products and people, which is why our shoes are designed with care and produced by passionate and talented people. Fashion, functionality and anatomy are essential elements of the WODEN DNA, ensuring that our sneakers are meticulously designed for urban life.
WODEN was established in 2013 by Carsten Holm, a shoemaker with a long history in the shoe industry. He realized that nature and the Scandinavian design tradition combined with the DNA of the sneaker and high quality at a reasonable price would be the perfect foundation for creating a fashionable Scandinavian sneaker. Today, we call this Scandinavian Simplicity.
