BEHIND THE BRAND

Group Picture PK Collective

I am Patrick, a former shoe developer from Zurich, Switzerland. With years of experience working for the renowned Swiss premium brand Navyboot, I have dedicated myself to creating a sneaker brand that prioritizes sustainability without compromising style.

 

With the Uni | Corn ’91, I have designed a sneaker is not only eco-friendly, but it also boasts a sleek and modern aesthetic, making it perfect for both casual and dressy occasions. This sneaker is designed in Switzerland and manufactured in Portugal.

At PK Collective, sustainability and transparency is at the heart of everything we do. We believe in transparency and make a conscious effort to reduce our carbon footprint as much as possible. We are committed to using sustainable materials and making a positive impact on the environment. Our sneaker is made with love and care, so you can wear them with pride and confidence.
