The brand offers elegant sneakers made using the world’s finest expertise. These products also contribute towards the development of the people who make them.
Piola, meaning « elegant » in Peruvian language. sources wild rubber directly from producers called « shiringueros » in the heart of the Amazonian forest in Peru.
By buying rubber at 5 times the local market price, we actively contribute in the development of their know-how, quality of life and work, whilst limiting deforestation.
For each pair sold, Piola redistributes 2€ to the shiringueros. These funds are used, amongst other things, to renovate and build latex production and to connect their houses to clear water and electricity (using solar panels).
There are many projects and it’s thanks to you that we can make them happen.
Piola works with renowned factories in Portugal, specialized in high-end production. We use Italian leathers, meeting REACH standards. Our exclusive sneakers collections are inspired by the classics of sneaker culture.
Piola, a fashionable, eco-responsible and committed brand.
