The greenest shoes in town are also the coolest, sprouting lovely wild flowers at the end of their sustainable lives. Really? Yes really!
OAT shoes have arrived at Amsterdam’s top sustainable shop – de Winkel van Guus where everyone is keen on green! Drop by Guus on the Rozengracht 104 and check out these amazing bio-degradable shoes. Once you’ve done wearing them, you can plant your Oat Shoes in the ground, providing a feast for Mother Nature and sprouting wild red flowers after only a few days.
Made from natural materials such as hemp, organic cotton and cork and using only certified bio degradable plastics – these shoes, once you’ve done with them, return to nature as part of the soil –remaining under our feet, where every self-respecting retired shoe is happiest.
Ingeniously, the seeds are a collection of wild flowers and are contained in a little pocket in shoe’s tongue. It also contains instructions for planting. The Dutch makers of OAT Shoes say in ideal conditions, the shoes bio degrade by circa 90% within 6 months.
A fantastic concept & great looking, super comfortable shoes that look after our planet!
