At Wildling Shoes we produce minimal shoes that are handcrafted in Portugal using robust and durable materials, primarily from eco-friendly natural fabrics. With their ultra-thin and flexible sole they are designed to help our bodies regenerate and to aid the rediscovery of the joy of moving naturally. Inspired by the principles of nature, we want to translate the regenerative impact of our shoes to our organization and the way we all do business. In this transformation we have to question everything: How we produce shoes. How we cooperate in supply chains. How we value resources and manage them in cycles. How we work together in a fulfilling way. How we foster personal and community development. We need to pause, listen intensely, radically question ourselves and rethink our privileges. We are all part of a generation that must now go ahead to show that business can work like a healthy ecosystem – balanced, inclusive, diverse, and regenerative at every level. #PartOfTheRegeneration
