About us

Product designer, Olivier Taco has always been fascinated by shoes but also loves being barefoot. Driven to design foot protection that felt like walking barefoot while still providing protection and support, Olivier began researching the history of footwear. It was then that he discovered the story of Amazonians dipping their feet in latex and smoking them in the fire to create a second skin. After trying this himself, he went on to design the "Freshoe".  He ran a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund an initial production in 2014 and focused distribution on Europe and Japan.

Iguaneye US is now excited to offer these shoes to an American audience for the first time since the initial Kickstarter campaign.
