TRULY BORN ON THE TRAIL, SOMEWHERE BETWEEN QUINTIN LODGE AND SOUTHERLAND FALLS
During the trek, I asked our friend, Pete from Wellington, New Zealand, a half-joking question: “do you know anyone in the wool trade?” I figured that in a country of 55 million sheep, it was worth a shot. Little did we know, his answer would become our new venture.
“One of my good mates,” Pete said, “he’s one of the largest wool traders in New Zealand.”
Our company, Wūru, was truly born on the trail, somewhere between Quintin Lodge and Southerland Falls, along the Milford Track. We named the company Wūru because Wūru means “wool” in Māori, the indigenous language and people of New Zealand.
Since that initial conversation, we have been working hard to bring Wūru to life. We are passionate about physical activity, and we can’t wait for your feet to experience the same aha moment that ours did. No matter your activity, we strive to ensure your foot comfort will allow you to go further, whether it’s running that extra mile, putting another point on the board, hiking to that next peak, or walking the extra block. No matter your goal, we strive to enable you and your feet to accomplish your goals in more comfort.
