Glyphs are digitally knit using recyclable fibers and advanced robotics. The result is an upper that is both sleek and light, and that shapes around the foot for a perfect fit for everyone.
Digital knitting is a process in which a knit pattern is created on a computer. The program is then used to instruct a flatbed knitting machine to knit the desired shoe pattern directly from a spool of yarn(s).
Glyphs are made 100% free of animal products and are designed to replace leather shoes. The fibers we use do not contain animal byproducts such as wool.
Glyphs can be hand washed or machine washed.
If you choose to machine wash your Glyphs make sure to remove the insoles. Wash them with in a cold cycle only.
Yes! Glyphs are designed to be worn with or without socks. Our highly breathable upper is designed to be super comfortable either way.
Yes! You can wear Glyphs in mid to light rain without any issues.
Fit and Sizing
Glyphs are true to size. The knit upper is designed to mold around your foot.
Due to the stretchable nature of the knitted textile upper, we recommend that customers size up. For example, a size 9.5 should size up to size 10.
