[si.zif] - French phonetic spelling of the name Sisyphe (Sisyphus in English) who used to be the King of Corinth in Greek Mythology and who was compelled to roll an immense boulder up a hill only to watch it roll back down.
Strange, right? At [si.zif], we are looking at the repetition of the action of walking. Walking streets, trails, sidewalks or simply walking through the path of life. As human beings, we are all meant to walk. We are "sentenced to walk", it's instinct! Rather it is forward or backward we just don't think about it!
The footwear are designed and hand made in Los Angeles by craftsmen that repeat the same motion and technique, with calm, precision and an unequaled know-how that is often passed on within the same family. Here again, there is repetition.
We hope that you will enjoy the subtle twist between tradition and modernism that we are trying to show on our products as much as we do! And most importantly: keep walking, it's worth it!
