PRODUCTS

Pakems are the lightweight pack-able shoes, perfect for relaxing happy after any outdoor activity. Originally designed to get out of ski boots, Pakems have become the go-to shoe for all kinds of outdoor activities, like hiking, camping, cycling or paddling. Pakems are also excellent for travel and everyday commuting. Pakems’ unique construction allows not only to be packed into a very low profile, but they are ultra-lightweight, making them easy take with you anywhere. Pakems are sold in a matching tote bag, with a convenient strap for hands-free carrying.

Pakems come in a wide range of styles and colors. Our Classics come in both a high top and low cut version, while our new Extreme is a redesign of the classic high top. We’ve also introduced a fashion forward boot called the Cortina, which bring high function and high fashion together in a smart and sassy design. Our Extreme high top comes in kids sizes, with an unprecedented and completely unique “color you own” design. Named after founder Julie Adam’s son, who came up with the idea, The Bodie is sold with fabric markers, allowing kids to color their boots, creating a truly one-of-a-kind design.
