Meet the Essentials – as little as possible, as much as necessary

The result: the Wildling Shoes Essentials! Our favorite models, reduced to the bare essentials. Tested to their limits by the Wildling Shoes Community. Chosen to accompany us all year long, and to join us in being part of the Re:generation.
