We manufacture and distribute shoes, shoe care products and foot care products. Green Cross has its own manufacturing plant in Cape Town, South Africa and also imports product from overseas. It distributes product not only through its own retail outlets, but also through pharmacies, shoe shops and health shops. Our success is inherent in the fact that we design fashionable and stylish shoes without compromising on quality and comfort. Green Cross shoes are unique in that they are orthopaedically designed to ensure the bones and muscles of the feet are protected and supported. In addition, our shoes are lightweight, padded for extra support and made of soft supple materials which conform to the shape of the wearer's foot. Our shoes are ideal for people who spend much of their day on their feet.
