Your feet called—they said it’s time to stop wearing your ratty old sneakers.

Founded in 2014 by Ryan Babenzien, Greats makes accessibly-priced, Italian-made sneakers that are a must-have for every wardrobe. Designed to be "trend-resistant," these chic kicks will look at home styled with a pair of jeans or a party dress.

Since the get-go, Greats has been committed to making shoes that are crafted responsibly: all their products are made in top-rated, hand-selected factories that meet the highest standards of labor and environmental practices. No virgin plastics are ever used in production, packaging, or retail stores. The best-selling Royale Knit, which is made from 100% up-cycled plastic bottles, keeps seven bottles out of oceans and landfills. Their ever-popular leather shoes are crafted in partnership with tanneries that utilize natural, biodegradable leather.
