Hello! we’re Christine and Peter. we’re The founders of ryōka boots.

We got the idea for ryōka one rainy Saturday morning when we met for a coffee. While sipping coffee and drying our shoes, we spoke about how nice it would be to have rain boots, but neither of us had seen rain boots that they felt comfortable wearing in cities they’ve called home.

So we started ryōka, because they believe that everyone should be able to feel comfortable and attractive in their home city, even when preparing for the harshest weather.

we also have a passion for sustainability, which comes from values instilled in us by our parents at a very young age. we decided that any rain boot we make must come with a commitment to helping the environment, not just simply stealing more resources from it.
