Koio, the direct-to-consumer made-in-Italy sneaker brand, is helping its customers shop for a cause this week with an online sample sale featuring 35% off its signature styles.
The company will be donating a percentage of sales to the Red Cross and Food Bank NYC amid the coronavirus pandemic.
All of Koio’s factories in Italy are shut down until April 8, and the brand’s retail locations remain closed until future notice.
To help customers better find the perfect sneaker style and size, Koio partnered up with Klarna to offer a ‘try now, buy later” program — which allows shoppers to try on their sneakers at home and gives them 30 days from the purchase date to decide whether to keep the shoes, return them or make an exchange.
The sample sale runs through April 2. Here are FN’s top Koio picks.
