CLOVE WAS FOUNDED TO CREATE A MODERN SHOE FOR PEOPLE ON THE FRONT LINES OF HEALTHCARE
Clove's founder, Joe Ammon
was at his wife Tamara’s side while she went through nursing school, calmed the jitters she felt before her first clinical, celebrated when she landed her first job, and held her when she lost her first patient. Joe saw first-hand how taxing—both physically and mentally—healthcare can be.
That's Why He Founded Clove
to support those that have dedicated their lives to caring for others. Like most nurses, Tamara has spent hours searching for the perfect shoe; she’s invested hundreds of dollars in products made for ultra-marathoners and Danish farmers and tried to retrofit them to her needs.
“What if we did all the research so they didn't have to?”
To build Clove, Joe and the Clove team collaborated with a network of healthcare professionals and innovative designers to create a stylish, thoughtfully-designed sneaker that puts the needs of those on the front lines of healthcare first.
As friends and family of healthcare providers, we are proud to introduce a shoe that does it all. Kind of like you.
Our mission is simple: to take care of those who take care of others. It’s personal for us—we see the pride and passion of this incredible community day in and day out. We know that in your line of work, there’s no room for error, and little room for fear. That’s why we made Clove: a shoe designed especially for the caretakers and problem-solvers who aren’t afraid of a little fluid. Or a lot.
