They keep your feet healthy, as they are fitted to the orthopedic shape of the feet. The sole in natural rubber makes them flexible, very comfortable and light.
No chemical or polluting process is involved in the fabrication.
Sustainability and technical details
The soils in natural rubber are stitched in fabric and fixed with a “low tech” system . The fabrication is made with the aim of “upcycling” waste , without creating other waste. This is the “zero waste concept”. It doesn’t produce any pollution for no chemicals (no glue, no solvent) are used in the production.
