Kavat – Solid Soles

There’s a pair of reliable shoes needed to go with warming socks, especially in the time of year that promises to be cold and wet. Since opening Soeder* we’ve had the leather shoes for kids and adults by Kavat, a Swedish family run business, in our selection of products. We’ve been wearing them ourselves for years. The company was founded in 1945 by Ragnar Karlsson first under the name Ymer and with the intention to offer «no damn garbage», as he used to say. Technological innovation in the manufacturing process, sturdy materials and timeless designs built the foundation to create products that people wanted to hold on to. Today this also means to confront a throw-away-mentality. We like that a lot. 2008 the first shoes by Kavat received the EU Ecolabel. The boots that we offer have also been eco-certified, feature rubber soles and a fine wool lining. The inner sole made from leather and wool is reversible. Kavat means courageous in Swedish, so even more the reason not to get cold feet anymore.
