The sneakers main materials are Silicon made in Germany, as it is used in many household items, and leather. Currently we use organic European leather made in Italy and Olivenleder, sustainably tanned with only olive leaves. Laces are made in Germany of cotton/cloth from various countries.
Your sneakers are produced right before you get them. The smell comes from glues. It will go away in a couple of days.
Did you know that off-the shelf sneakers have much more glue in them than eekuals? They do not smell, since they are typically produced months before you get them.
Eekuals fit perfectly for your foot. Standard sized shoes, however, have to “fit” anyone. Hence, they have extra space of up to 2 cm making them artificially big.
Many people have differently sized feet. For standard sized shoes it means that the shoe for the larger foot feels systematically tighter than the one for the smaller foot.
For eekuals, on the contrary, the sneaker for the smaller foot fits perfectly. It feels tighter, since your smaller foot is simply not used to being in a fitting shoe.
Eekuals fit perfectly. They are like a second skin. You can feel them all over your foot. This feels new or even strange when you get your first eekuals.
Standard-sized shoes don’t fit. You only feel them at certain points.
The available colors in the app reflect the currently available leather and silicon colors in our store. Some of the colors are not always available from our European suppliers.
We have tested hundreds of color combinations and restricted your choice to those aesthetically matching best. In our tests we had some crazy color combinations. It turned out, customers did not wear these eekual’s a lot because of their look.
The eekual Android app is planned. We have no specific release date yet.
No. eekual converts measurements into cut patterns based on an algorithm. We create a digital twin that learns and changes with you. In contrast, custom tailors largely rely on craftsmanship which follows rather stringent rules. As a result, eekual sneakers truly represent your individual physiology.
