ZIG ZAG SHOES
Zig Zag Shoes began in 1976, by making skateboards in the USA. The Vietnam war had just ended, and skateboarding was just becoming popular. It started with making skateboards, then quickly evolved into making some good, well priced shoes to skate in. Zig-Zag was quickly and quietly born making a timeless, comfortable shoe for a good price. From day one, we made our shoes for the individuals who matched our ethos, and were on their own journeys in life.
The first shoes were known as “roofers” as many people in construction would wear the mesh slip ons, due to the utility of being very breathable for hot working conditions not to mention also being comfortable. The next style was the slip on and the lace up out of hopsack canvas. Word quickly spread, and the fuse was ignited into a wildfire. Everyone from skaters, homeless people, train hoppers and anyone in between started gravitating towards Zig Zags. These styles soon after garnered the moniker “winos”. There certainly was a mysterious aura surrounding Zig-Zags, as well as the culture & cult following that surrounds.
Zig Zag remains deeply rooted in the roots of hard working people, american culture, and the individuals who have the guts to see their dreams come true. Balancing utility with innovation, and comfort without financial compromise Zig Zag strives to make the best, most timeless and comfortable shoes that your hard earned money can buy.
