It started with a holiday to Hoi An in Vietnam, where, instead of enjoying the famous Cao lầu secret noodles, we were too busy noodling around the local market trying to find a pair of handmade leather brogues. It got us thinking, “if we can have this level of detail and craftsmanship in a brogue, can we have it in a football boot?”, or something like that. We’d had a few drinks, but you get our drift.
We took two trips back to Vietnam (for the boots, not the noodles), handed in our P45, and started Sokito. We learned that intelligent software and sustainable-design could change the face of performance football products whilst changing the world.
Our journey is just getting started.
