These are the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned. Issues due to lockdown in the Uk and Portugal were dealt with impeccably by Rui and Ed.
Bought as a Christmas present for my son in law. They proved an excellent choice. Worn almost non stop since!!
Order came very quickly, beautifully packaged and great quality. What has impressed me most is the Finnish of the shoes and how incredibly comfortable they are. Really nice to have a product that is both ethical and good quality. Will definitely order in the future. Keep up the great work.
I loved every bit of this purchase; from the great website and quick responses to ease of ordering and speedy delivery, to the actual joy of opening the box and finding the beautifully made trainers inside.
The 1970 trainers are as soft as slippers and look so good my eleven year old son suddenly thinks I’m quite cool !!
My feet love wearing them and they make me feel all warm inside too.
Please keep up the good work.
A thoroughly good complete experience.
These are the most comfortable trainers i have ever experienced!! Ps thanks for the speedy delivery.
Once their repairable life is over, our compostable shoes break down into organic materials in ordinary composting, but only long after they have served a long and useful life which outstrips most footwear.
100% Natural Rubber Outsole
Our unique natural production process uses hand-poured rubber, which is cured for a week, and creates an alveolar microstructure of tiny networked air bubbles for unrivalled comfort and 100% sustainable trainers.
100% Plastic Free
Our eco shoes and trainers contain zero plastic, from the factory to your door, and including the packaging. We only use planet-friendly materials and natural organic processes which prioritise sustainability.
