It all started with just one shoe.
Born of humble beginnings with only one style of shoe and one customer who believed in our founder’s vision, Wild Rhino was established in Melbourne in 1996.
All of the dominant Australian shoe factories suddenly come to a standstill and the shoes on offer in Australia became uninspiring. It was an opportunity. A chance to travel the world in search of something new and exciting to bring to the shoe industry.
And so Wild Rhino was born and with it began a journey around the world to provide fresh new interesting designs and quality materials to the Australian and New Zealand footwear market.
Our signature Wild Rhino symbolises this journey and our brand’s desire to continue to walk the Earth in search of simple, strong and unique designs but it also reflects our company’s ethos that the best things in life are found with a sense of wonder, freedom and exploration.
