On my search for innovative and stylish sustainable fashion collections, I stumbled upon Dutch brand OAT shoes. As you can see in the picture above, these are not just your regular shoes. As discussed in the article regarding the definition of sustainable fashion, the fashion lifecycle goes beyond the production process. That is a concept that these people have understood to the core. You buy sustainably produced shoes, and after wearing them out, you can plant them in your backyard, the shoes degrade on their own without leaving behind any toxic waste, and your garden will have an extra touch of green! Amazing, right?
I can go on for hours about this cool concept. OAT shoes claims to have made the first biodegradable sneakers in the world. After initially launching with only sneakers, they now added babyshoes to their collection as well. Can I just say, I’m totally in love?! See for yourself!
Aren’t these babyshoes the cutest? I think I am also falling for the light-blue sneakers. For more cool sustainable sneakers, babyshoes and purchase information, check out the OAT shoes website!
How about you, would you consider these biodegradable sneakers for your (summer) wardrobe?
