Yogi Footwear SS19 Collection12. 05. 2019
For Spring Summer 2019, style, substance and sustainability are at the heart of the Yogi Footwear collection with an emphasis on quality and craftsmanship.
Yogi Footwear uses naturally formed lasts with soft earthy leathers and buttery suedes which are hand sewn in at a third-generation, family-owned factory, eschewing superfluous detailing for a clean and minimal aesthetic.
Yogi’s comfortable and stylish shoes – ranging from unlined moccasins to boots and sneakers – are characterised by neutral colours and superior details with high-quality features such as leather laces and lightweight crepe-lined soles.
The original Yogi Footwear brand was inspired by the negative heel which was born out of the musical subcultures of the 70s and 80s. The design which slants down from the toes to the heels aimed to promote good posture with the shape emulating the way feet sink into sand and thus the wearer can walk in the most natural way.
The Heritage collection features Willard Tumbled Leather Negative Heel in Tan, Ivory and Chocolate (pictured below).

For SS19, a new style called Elijah features the classic Negative Heel in a Lace Up Boot with a Gum Sole in Oatmeal and Olive.
Yogi Footwear relaunched with the Classic range of moccasin styles which are are hand crafted, featuring full leather, leather laces and natural crepe & vibram sole units. The Classic collection has an unlined moccasin construction which facilitates the reduction of glue in the manufacturing process. Styles include Lawson Suede Moccasin Sand and Tan.
Lucas Leather Moccasin Boot in Tan and Sand.
Caden Suede Lace-up Sand and Olive.
The Contemporary range features modern silhouettes which are juxtaposed with traditional construction methods, including soles engineered from natural crepe. Yogi’s functional and durable styles delivery comfort and authenticity in equal measure. Styles include Rufus Crepe in Brown (pictured below).
Yogi Footwear is committed to sustainability and the brand uses locally sourced materials plus recycled shoeboxes to lower the carbon footprint, and limits the use of solvent-based adhesives through advanced design.
