At Haghe, we care about the way our shoes are made. We therefore know that responsible business starts with knowing our product. From the inside out. Haghe was founded with a vision to create products that respect the planet and people that live on it.
If we want to take good care of the world, we have to use the best sustainable materials in the design and development process. So you don't have to think twice before buying a pair of our shoes.
How do we do that? Well, we know our suppliers. We have been working with them since the start of Haghe. We work with various suppliers who offer materials for making our shoes. The factories in which these materials are produced are continuously monitored for sustainability and fair labor. But also, what kind of influence the production has on the environment. We deliver your shoes in 100% sustainable packaging and ensure efficient transport with local partners. This way we reduce our CO2 emissions and our shoes are ready to wear for you.
We want to be honest with you and become the best version of ourselves possible. While creating the sophisticated shoes we love.
Knowing our product inside out allows us to choose the most sustainable materials. Materials such as leather and rubber. We only use leather that is certified to meet animal welfare, safety and environmental requirements. That is why we are affiliated with the Leather Working Group.

Sustainability has many angles. By taking care of your shoes you will enjoy them longer. Shoe care is an important aspect of that. We use high qualitiy materials that sometimes need some extra love and care. And that is sustainability as well!
