Born in Miami

In 2010, ZEMgear burst onto the footwear scene with innovative active lifestyle products designed to help you find your “ZONE OF ENDLESS MOTION”. Born in Miami, ZEMgear embraces the "Miami Vibe".

We express Miami's vital culture, energetic colors and the magic connection to wind, water, sand and land.

Created by the award winning design team of Christina Bracken, ZEM branded Footwear allows your feet to do what they were designed to do naturally.

All of our designs are worked on, tested and finalized in our US Miami headquarters.


ZEM or the ZONE of ENDLESS MOTION defines a space “where anything is possible” – where you can be “ZEMsational”!

ZEMs allow your feet to be as natural as possible which can heighten awareness and aid posture, balance and agility, while offering many performance features and excellent protection.

Be any age, any stage, on land, in water, supremely active or serenely still.

Split Toe & Round Toe

One of the Distinguishing Features of ZEM footwear is the SPLIT TOE CONCEPT. Separating the BIG TOE – the forward propulsion digit from your other, balancing digits, creates the secure but agile WOW feel customers love about ZEMs. A split toe pattern naturally re-aligns often deformed Phalanges in the foot – creating a supinatory effect (countering pronation). This helps lift the arch naturally and can lead to better balance, posture and to the overall well-being of an active lifestyle.

Knowing that not everyone is comfortable with a split toe pattern, we also offer many round toe styles with a roomy toe box allowing feet to splay as wide and flexible as possible.

ZEM Innovation and Awards

ZEMgear has created an innovative and award winning line of natural footwear for all walks of life.

ZEM offers a product for every lifestyle: Running and Training Shoes, Water Sport Shoes, Hiking Shoes, Sand Sport Shoes, Yoga and Travel Shoes and more.

In January 2011 ZEMgear’s collection received the 3M IN-NEW-VATION award for the “Most Innovative Footwear Product” at the Outdoor Retailer Show in Salt Lake City. January 2012 saw ZEMgear’s nomination as a FINALIST of the ISPO BrandNew Awards in Europe.

YES! We are Vegan

Yes - we are Vegan. As a company we follow the doctrine that man should live without exploiting animals. We utilize man-made fabrics and materials so that no animals come to harm during the manufacturing or distribution of our products.

Responsible all the way

Commitment to responsible use and conservation of resources guides ZEMgear’s product innovation and set the precedence to “not use” whenever possible, resulting in low-impact design and packaging, manufacturing, distribution, shipping and display practices.
