Notes from a Swedish stylist


Non-Toxic Sneakers, Yes Please!

Sneakers, Tretorn.

You know how you can trace the whole body through your feet, like your big toe reaches your glands and all that? Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about what shoes are made of, and have come to the conclusion that a lot of conventional materials have no place in a shoe. That’s why finding these sneakers made me kind of happy.
The sole is made from EcoOrthoLite, which is an environmentally friendly, bio-based formulation that replaces 20% of the petroleum traditionally used in the polyol of polyurethane foams with a bio-oil substitute made from castor beans. This also makes EcoOrthoLite a renewable resource, which reduces the shoe’s carbon footprint.

Sounds pretty great, right?
