[:en]Ocun was founded in 1994 under the brand 'ROCK PILLARS' in the Czech Republic, a country with a long history of traditional climbing. In the same year they presented their first climbing shoe collection at the first Outdoor fair in Friedrichshafen, Germany.
In the past 20 years they have developed and produced hundreds of thousands of shoes and distributed them worldwide. Continually developing and rigorously testing new solutions, new lasts, and stickier rubber.
In 1998, they began with their first climbing harnesses, bouldermats, quickdraws and other equipment, which quickly gained wide popularity among climbers due to their quality, functionality and design.
Today Ocun has around 130 devoted employees who develop and produce their products, still in the Czech Republic, a country with a long tradition of shoemaking and textiles. Since 2015 they have been rebranded under the name Ocún.
