Danish designers launch “climate positive” vegan sneaker brand
The brand offers classic and high-top sneaker styles that were designed in Copenhagen and made in Spain. The brand’s vegan-leather sneakers are made using 100-percent recycled microfiber that is produced using less water than standard footwear and is free of chemicals. The recycled canvas styles feature recycled rubber soles and are produced using solar-powered energy and almost no water. With this collection, founders Mikkel Bang, Lars Balstrup Joergensen, and Sam Carew aim to challenge the fashion industry in what it means for a brand to be climate-friendly. According to the founders, each pair of Elliot shoes offsets one metric ton of carbon dioxide emissions compared to standard shoes.
