We are VYN

VYN was founded in 2019 by Swiss designers Catherine Meuter and Stefan Mathys. Together we have over 25 years of experience in the footwear industry and having lived around the globe. VYN came to life over a discourse about the sneaker industry being one of the most polluting in the fashion industry. We wanted to create a sneaker that stands the test of time as we believe in longevity and quality as the driving force in everything we create, consume and relate to.
