International Brands Group can boast one of the best footwear design and development teams in the industry, thanks to our experienced designers and product specialists. We have a wealth of expertise across all footwear categories, as well as longstanding relationships with top retailers and material suppliers such as Vibram, Cordura and Michelin.

With sourcing capabilities across Asia, offices in Hong Kong and China, and global sales distribution headquartered in The Netherlands, we are strongly positioned for international growth. 

We are fully equipped to test the physical properties of inbound materials and of our finished products to industry standards, thanks to our own in-house SATRA Technology laboratory. Their accreditation to perform many standard tests within the scope of the industry ensures that our products are always above and beyond international standard requirements.

At IBG, we carefully select our production facilities for their specialization, production capacity, history, and compliance to corporate, social, ethical and environmental standards.
