Biodegradable NY Sneakers

Options:
Size:

Our NY Sneakers, launched in 2015, are now available in this new biodegradable version.

The uppers are one-piece of fine gauge knitted Tencel cut to our new sneaker silhouette with a low-cut ankle shape and laces that run low down the vamp. A contrasting knit pattern creates the stripe down each side. 

There’s no padding, no panels stitched on, and no lining. As a result, the uppers are thin and lightweight with a clean, minimalist look (if you’re looking for a more chunky sneaker, try our Biodegradable LDN Sneakers, which are padded and knitted in a thicker gauge). 

The Tencel uppers are very soft and mould around your feet. They’re breathable and lightweight to wear. They’re fully washable by hand or in a short cool wash with a towel (to protect from the wash drum).

The grey Tencel and organic cotton mix footbeds are lovely to put your feet on. These sneakers look and feel best without socks or with just sock liners. The Tencel allows air to circulate, helping your feet stay cool. It is also great at wicking moisture away, keeping them dry and hygienic.

The wood fibre and natural latex insoles on the side-wall stitched Apinat Bio sneaker outsoles provide cushioning, shock absorption and traction as you walk.

We added a Tencel woven WVS pull tab on the back to finish.
