Influences in Cydwoq designs come from nature (in terms of shapes used and natural finishes), architecture, automobile design (in creating lines that complement the shape of the foot) as well as old films (in terms of materials used as well as modifying classic shapes).
Cydwoq’s construction alone sets them apart. Their shoes are the only all leather shoes that have the insole (footbed) and the outsole contoured with the shape of the foot to facilitate the walking process. CYDWOQ is also distinguished from other shoe companies by the fact that its shoe components are manufactured at the CYDWOQ factory in Burbank, California. Where other shoe companies only make the uppers and purchase the components from third parties, Cydwoq manufactures the complete shoe with 90% of the components (heels, insoles, outsoles, wooden soles) constructed in-house.
