Gorgeous red suede trainers & incredibly comfortable...like walking on clouds!
Would be good to know what shoe care you recommend for suede...or is nano quartz protection all that’s needed?
My red suede trainers are completely gorgeous & oh so comfortable. Fabulous attention to detail from materials right down to the wooden box & info booklet!
So pleased I found you Waes!
LOVE my new shoes that look and feel great and fulfill such high standards with no plastic (hurrah) and vegan. LOVED the beautiful packaging ( also no plastic) especially the box and have not really taken them off since and feel proud to wear them. Thank you so much and keep up the good work. I will definitely be back for more
I have never put my feet into anything more comfortable. They are sublime
Extremely comfortable and reassuringly well built. And the red suede looks fantastic. Time will tell how well the nano-quartz protects the fabric - but I've been wearing a pair of the black leather 1970s all year and they still look as good as new, so I'm hopeful!
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.
Organic Nano Protection
The last thing you'd usually want to do is get sand on your shoes, but our nano quartz coating utilises quantum physics to protect your kicks and keep them looking box fresh. And of course, it's sand, so it's completely natural and allows the shoe to breathe.
If you are a half size, please go down a size.
