Q: How and when was Knots founded?
A: Josh Harris initiated Knots on the back of a napkin. Josh has a passion for minimalist design. From this passion, a vision to transform the sneaker industry was born. Knots is the first company to offer custom embossed sneakers. The company was officially launched in Melbourne in September 2016.
Q: Does Knots have a supply chain code of conduct?
A: We are very conscious of our supply chain. Ethical sourcing is at the heart of our business. We always pay a fair price for our products. All our manufacturers are BSCI audited. BSCI is an initiative of the Foreign Trade Association (FTA). The BSCI is based on the labour standards of the International Labour Organization (ILO) and other significant international regulations like the UN Charta for Human Rights, as well as on national regulations. This initiative aims at continuously improving the social performance of suppliers, ultimately enhancing working conditions in factories worldwide. All suppliers and their employees accord with local labour laws, are paid above the minimum wage and are voluntary workers. Our suppliers do not use slave labour or child labour. We ensure that employees representatives treat employees fairly and equally. Therefore, our suppliers do not discriminate based on age, caste, disability, ethnic and national origin, gender, membership in worker's organisations, political affiliation, race, religion, sexual orientation, social background, and other personal characteristics.

Q: How to I determine my shoe size?
