Who is Skinners?!

At Skinners Technologies, we developed a revolutionary ultra-portable footwear to let you move without limits. In 2015 founder and CEO Petr Prochazka created the first prototype of footwear to help people focus less on what they carry, so they could focus more on what they do.

In 2016 the project became the most funded footwear campaign on Kickstarter ever and validated Skinners as a global yet unique piece of footwear. Nowadays we continue to fulfill the vision to provide people minimalist yet protective footwear for their sports and travels.

We've already been off to a great start and called “The Swiss Army Knife of Footwear” but the potential of Skinners goes beyond. We believe that what we developed should already have been here a long time ago - something that also helps us rediscover our own bodies, every muscle and every surface we move on. That's why we're dedicated to the mission to get Skinners to every foot rack in every household all over the world…

We are the friendly team headquartered in center of Brno delivering Skinners to more than 120 countries worldwide. We are also an equal opportunity company creating a work environment and teams that people are happy to be part of.
