To be the leading international shoe brand.
By innovatively developing the latest designs and applying cutting edge manufacturing technology to produce shoes, accessories and footcare products of the highest standards thereby exceeding the needs and expectations for our customers.
Our success is inherent in the fact that we design fashionable and stylish shoes without compromising on quality and comfort. Green Cross shoes are unique in that they are orthopaedically designed to ensure the bones and muscles of the feet are protected and supported. Our shoes are made of genuine leather, top grade materials and flexing properties to ease the movement in walking. All our shoes and/ or components exceed the SABS or SATRA standards for footwear.
To avoid damage to feet especially caused by high heels, Green Cross shoes are fitted with carefully designed longitudinal and metatarsal arch supports in the areas were the foot tires a lot like the mid-foot region. We also use mainly low or medium height heels, so that the foot is kept in a relatively natural position which assists in distributing weight evenly and keeping the foot stable.
Our shoes are especially ideal for professionals who are on their feet, hour after hour, day after day. Besides the benefits already mentioned our shoes are lightweight, padded for extra support and made of soft supple materials which conforms to the shape of the wearer’s foot.
Our range currently covers every type of footwear; from infant’s sandals and shoes, youth fashion sandals and shoes, school shoes, ladies cork sandals, wooden clogs, sandals, courts and sling backs, men’s shoes and sandals and sport / active shoes.
