For years, Founder Shawn Langton wore old athletic shoes to mow and work in the yard. He battled soggy feet in the morning dew, slipped on inclines with his worn out tread, and cursed the grass and debris that would cover his socks when his shoes came off. He searched for a better option with no luck. This cast him into 3 years of research and development to discover what makes the ultimate yard shoe. In June 2017, Kujo Yardwear launched on Kickstarter, raising over $40,000 dollars. This along with his own money propelled the Kujo Yard Shoe into production and onto the feet of lawn care professionals and homeowners across the country.
