We commit making a promise to create a sneaker with the lowest possible impact on the planet we live on.
It’s a promise to produce a sneaker made entirely of re-used and recycled materials, without having to harvest any natural recourses. A sneaker that didn’t involve killing or harming animals or chopping down rainforests and replacing them with huge rubber plantations. A sneaker that is a genuine solution to the problem, part of the circular economy.
It’s a promise to create the most sustainable and ecological sneaker, without compromising on quality, comfort and design.
Sustainability is part of our DNA
Did you know that the fashion industry is the second largest polluting industry after the oil industry? The current system for producing, distributing, and using clothing & shoes operates in an almost completely linear way. Large amounts of nonrenewable resources are extracted to produce clothes and shoes that are often used for only a short period! There are many aspects to sustainability including energy usage, water consumption, ability to recycle and social responsibility.
We want to take on this challenge: Komrads incorporates sustainability at all the levels of our company, we made it part of our DNA.
Perpetual beta mindset
It is inevitable that we have a footprint, although we do our very best to reduce it to a minimum. That is why we are not only very conscious of the materials we use and the way we produce our sneakers, but we want to do more… every time we work on improving our production process, we innovate by testing new materials, we optimize the way we ship our goods.
We are always in perpetual Beta mindset.
