“You don’t ask the Sea any questions, you just dress up for the occasion” - Douse Gaastra, Sneek 1897-

Gaastra Footwear

It was early 2015 when Star Collections obtained the official licence for Gaastra Footwear which forged a special relationship between the two Dutch companies. Gaastra's nautical roots made it even more special as there is so much rich heritage from which to draw inspiration.

So we set sail and started this adventure together, breathing new life into existing collections and building upon the great potential of our footwear category. We are set for an exciting journey as we build upon our success in existing markets.
