Fabulous Footwear from Near and Far
RYZ footwear snuck up on us from across the street. The imaginative group of guys behind RYZ wanted to see something a little different in the sneaker industry where they each worked, so they decided to start their own line of shoes designed by the public. As they put it, “RYZ designs are created by artists, DJs, poets, students, dreamers, doers and other individuals like you.” Literally anyone can enter their sneaker design online at their website, for the chance to have leave their mark on footwear history. We love the fact that not only does RYZ encourage expression in such a great way, but it also shares profits with its designers. We are excited to have such cool neighbors, and we’re thrilled to carry their line in our shop.
Bo Boots may hail from far away New Zealand, but they feel right at home in Portland. These boots are seriously luxurious, cute, and perfect for winter’s chilly days. Handcrafted in New Zealand using the finest sheep and calfskin, it is easy to see why Bo Boots has gained a following since its launch in 2007. Olio will be carrying a limited selection for the holidays, and we’re taking orders now- don’t miss out!
