The world's first vegan plastic-free sneaker is here. Working in partnership with nature, we've created the ultimate sustainable plant-based sneaker in all natural materials.

Handmade in Portugal from organic white cotton, this unisex silhouette is a classic reborn with minimum ecological impact. 

It takes a week to pour, bake and then cure our delightfully supple yet hard-wearing red natural gum soles. This process creates a unique microstructure of tiny air bubbles for unrivalled comfort and will not shed microplastics as it wears down. 

Combined with our unique Infinite Cloud insoles, you'll be walking on air as you let nature cushion your feet in extraordinary comfort. This zero plastic vegan sneaker will make you question every established norm.

    • 100% plastic-free
    • Organic white cotton
    • Hemp stitched
    • Vegan conifer glue
    • 99% plant-based (plus some metal eyelets) 
    • Infinite Cloud latex insole for mind-blowing comfort 
    • Handmade in Portugal by artisans 
    • Can be resoled
    • Compostable at the end of life
    • Promotes natural foot movement  
    • Premium design without the ecological price-tag
    • Each shoe plants a mangrove with SeaTrees which sequesters 5x more carbon than a regular tree 

This sneaker is built from the sole up with sustainability and circularity as our primary focus. Join us in changing the way shoes are manufactured and help stem the tide of plastic footwear.

Why WAES?

Our 100% biodegradable sneaker range uses only the highest-quality natural materials, which put people and the environment first. Our shoes are a plastic-free, no compromise product. Using sustainable materials and natural organic processes which prioritises sustainability above profit.

100% Compostable

Once their repairable life is over, our shoes break down into organic materials in ordinary composting, but only 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.

100% Plastic Free

Our shoes contain zero plastic, from the factory to your door, and including the packaging. We only use sustainable materials and natural organic processes which prioritise sustainability above profit.
