The Story of Grow: Planting the Seed of Change and Nurturing Sustainability

By Supplyant

Our story began with a vision - a vision of a world where sustainability is embraced, where our planet is free to thrive, and where we live in harmony with nature. Driven by this vision, we set out to create a brand that would encourage, inspire and empower others to make small steps towards sustainability.

With a deep-rooted passion for the environment, we planted the seeds of Grow to help your rising stars sprout and shoot for a brighter future.

Time to change, time to Grow.

Our Founder, Jason Beckley, launched Grow in September 2021. Having worked in the fashion and footwear industry for over 20 years, including for major brands such as Nike and Puma, as well as high-end brands such as Yves Saint Laurent and Alexander McQueen, Jason identified all the problems wrong with the industry. He also worked first hand at making school shoes for the leading retailer in the UK. He learnt how destructive the industry is and how low quality the products are. And so, he felt compelled to act.

Smart is our legacy.

We know what we’re talking about. We know what works and what doesn’t. We know the traditions. And we know how to be better. We know how to do better. We want to stand for something good. We want to stand for the trees and the cows, the atmosphere and the oceans - we want to stand for this generation and the next and all the generations to come. 

This is no: breed it, peel it, stitch it, ship it operation. Tradition is a poor excuse for destruction. At Grow, we believe in better. We care about what you wear. 

No animal materials. No environmental destruction. No far off manufacturing. 

Let’s step forward together in harmony - in clean, green shoes. 

At Grow, it’s our mission to support the people of the future. Grow shoes are contemporary in all they stand for. We don’t support old fashioned gender stereotyping. We don’t support animal leather. We don’t support air pollution by unnecessary transportation. And we don’t support poverty exploitation by underpaying workers in horrific conditions. 

Grow stands for the people of the future. Grow stands for our planet. Grow stands out from the crowd. We believe in ethicality, sustainability and education. 

Grow is on a mission for a reason, join us! Demand more, expect more, and care more.
