1982 - Celeste Organic Canvas White Sole
The world’s only plastic-free, vegan celeste blue trainer, created in partnership with nature.
Reimagine what is possible in footwear with an ethically-made, plastic-free and animal-friendly construction. Our 1982 celeste blue vegan trainer is a plant-based, sustainable first step towards a world of all-natural footwear.
Uncompromising on style and comfort, our eco-friendly trainer merges classic lines with minimal ecological impact. A celeste blue organic canvas upper with blue laces and white natural rubber soles make these 1982 vegan trainers an everyday essential to complete any look.
Every pair of these sustainable trainers is lovingly handmade in Portugal from organic cotton with white gum soles, hemp stitching and vegan conifer glue.
Our plastic-free rubber soles take a week to pour, bake and cure, resulting in a supple yet hard-wearing microstructure, containing thousands of tiny air bubbles. Combined with our unique Infinite Cloud insoles, this pair of vegan sneakers provide unrivalled comfort.
So go ahead, challenge every established norm and be plastic-free and vegan from the ground up with a pair of WAES game-changing canvas trainers.

They look amazing and feel great, too. Worth the money!
I bought my first pair of Waes trainers after reading a review of them and am delighted. Great colour, very comfortable and plastic free - fantastic!
I love these shoes, they are the most comfortable trainers I own and the warm yellow colour gives me so much joy when I look down. Summer in a shoe! The fact that they are plastic free and biodegradable is a big bonus. Thanks WAES, I will be getting myself a boot for the autumn too.
Pleasantly surprised by the comfort. Fast delivery, with no plastic waste!
I had already bought a leather pair and was so impressed I decided to try these too. I am not disappointed, same great service, really well packaged. Love the shoes. They are expensive compared to other products on the market but they look and feel great. I especially like the darker sole (my other pair are red soled).
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.
