TAKA is a movement by foot. We’re in a lifestyle resurgence, moving away from urban centers to gain inspiration from the fringe, from the unknown.
I believe that fashion can find new worth. Aesthetics can be made for pleasure as well as purpose. These shoes are built to transcend boundaries, to explore the edge where culture and consciousness collide.
TAKA fuses everything that a product should be. The leather is ecological, the labor is ethical. The production process is artisanal and honors shoemaking traditions. The designs are inspired by heritage menswear but deconstructed for ease of movement. The line is unisex and distilled to essence. You’ll cultivate the character of this shoe over time, simply with use.
