The 1970 by WAES

The 1970 by WAES

The world’s first plastic-free sneaker, made from 100% natural materials.

Handmade in Portugal from the softest full grain leather, this minimalist unisex silhouette is a classic reborn with minimal ecological impact.

Supple yet hard-wearing natural gum soles contain a unique microstructure of tiny air bubbles for unrivalled comfort.

Combined with our unique Infinite Cloud insoles which cushion the feet and provide extraordinarily softness these are the most comfortable shoes you’ll ever wear.

This plastic-free sneaker will make you question every established norm.
