Astonishing comfort and materials, great style, everything is here.

As a textile engineer working in the sneaker industry for eco-conception, Waes is my top pick for leather kicks! Apart from the fact that the shoes look even better in real life, I was struck by the quality of materials (which I know quite some about) and the comfort they offer. I'll probably never buy anything else than natural latex sole from now on.
Congrats for all the work behind such beautifully crafted products!
Also love the customer experience (booklet is fire) AND customer service. I can only recommend this brand. Thanks for offering such a good option in this industry.

Comfortable, expect higher quality for the price

I'm happy with the product. The fact they are compostable is very wonderful.

These are super comfortable shoes. I love the flex, the softness of the leather and insole. The fact they are waterproof is good.

However for the price I would expect a higher quality finish. There is a few loose threads on the exterior interior and little rubber 'tags'. The insole came loose very quickly. I don't mind too much, as it means I can dry them out, but perhaps use more and stronger glue, or simply leave them as detachable.

Thank you, I hope they will last

Excellent shoes, excellent customer service

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.

Really impressed

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.

Why WAES?

Our 100% biodegradable, eco-friendly trainers use only the highest-quality natural materials, which put people and the environment first. Every pair of WAES ethical footwear is a plastic-free, no compromise product. Using only sustainable materials and natural organic processes which prioritises the environment above profit.

100% Compostable

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.
