Once you make the decision to liberate yourself, and you've taken that difficult first step, momentum increases with every stride. The further you propel yourself toward your goals, the less likely it is you will turn back. The founder of the CCILU Footwear started out as a banker. At the peak of his career, he took a giant leap outside his comfort zone. Wilson Hsu drew on his background in Science and Mathematics to become an award-winning shoe designer. A small shoe stand on the streets soon became an international brand selling across five continents.
In support of our Spring / Summer 2017 “Horizon” collection, CCILU Footwear has enlisted a team of Global Ambassadors – citizens of note who have liberated themselves and changed the course of their lives. Our Ambassadors are more than celebrity endorsers: each embodies the CCILU mantra "liberate yourself." These include Soles4Souls CEO Buddy Teaster, 8-star Michelin Chef Martin Berasategui, with several other influencers to be named as the year unfolds.
This holiday season, CCILU partners with Soles4Souls on "Step 4 Step" program that is true to our belief that as we step forward, we should also give back.
All of our Ambassador Stories will delight and inspire you, so please join us throughout 2017, as we share those stories via celebratory events and videos.
Technology is nothing without sustainability. What is the purpose of a journey if not to share a unique gift or desire that improves the world we live in? CCILUCELL isn’t just a fancy word for liberated technology (or the result of years of research and development); it’s green, it’s low-carbon and it is at the core of the CCILU Horizon collection.
Aesthetically, the black-and-white outsole design of this collection bears the legendary “ICHIMATSU MOYO” pattern, an elite fashion symbol in the Golden Age of Japanese history. It is a beautiful coincidence that this illustrious pattern has been adopted by the Tokyo Olympics Committee to be the official logo of the 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics.
Like the dots on the sole of each CCILU Horizon shoe, our lives are the sum of many individual steps, powered by passion and the pursuit of a meaningful, sustainable lifestyle.
