Gender Inclusive Footwear line, MATRIARCH, Launches Kickstarter

Our favorite new inclusive footwear brand MATRIARCH has launched their Kickstarter! It's time to make these beauties a reality.

By backing this project, you're helping future queers get the footwear they deserve! Matriarch developed unique designs that we loved inspired by menswear, using the most sustainable materials possible: vegetable tan leather. Each shoe is hand made in a small family owned factory in Portugal.

Matriarch’s first collection includes two styles inspired by the classic Longwing Brogue and two styles of boots. Two sole options will take you wherever you need to go: an elegant stacked leather sole or a sporty Vibram rubber sole. They will be made in all foot sizes offering options for all people.
