You know those trainers that are absolutely awesomely soft and supple then wear out just as they hit the sweet spot. Well these are like those but right from the start. Recommended.
These really are a beautifully made, stylish shoe, and I can say hands down are the comfiest shoes I have ever worn! And to add to all this, owning a plastic free shoe that has minimal impact to the environment, makes me feel good, win win!!! 🙌 couldn’t be happier with my purchase, thank you WAES
This is my 2nd pair!! Bought some in black for work. Also bought a pair for my daughter who has been coveting mine!! Had a small problem with the 1st pair but all was sorted out by the wonderful staff!!
We love both the canvas and the dreamy soft ecru leather. Very excited to each have a plastic free pair of the comfiest pumps x🌴x
The most comfortable kicks I have ever worn and also plastic free so we don’t have to worry about the ecological impact either. Top product and I would buy again and again.
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.
