VIA, weatherproof knit shoes made from recycled ocean plastic

 

Eco-friendly weatherproof knit shoes that are lightweight, stylish, durable and comfortable? That´s VIA, waterproof and breathable shoes designed to protect your feet with a style.

Eco-friendly? Yes, the flyknit upper is made from ocean recycled plastic. One pair of VIA shoes can help to recycle approximately 30 gram of ocean plastic, at least according to the VIA Design Lab official statement.

If you love the idea and the design of VIA shoes, but you are slightly skeptical, what if we mention that they are also waterproof. VIA shoes are designed with technology which wicks moisture, maintains breathability and may keep the feet dry for up to 2 hours.

What´s more, VIA shoes are integrated with 3 layers which creates extremely lightweight and comfortable wear. The shoes’ foldable high-top flaps fit snug around the ankle and stop things from getting into your shoe. This means, no more wet socks and clunky rain boots. VIA’s can be customized to your own style. Change them from high-top and low-top.

Sounds too good to be true? We should mention, the VIA shoes is a crowdfunding project. Of course, there is nothing wrong on it, but you should know the risk of pledging a crowdfunding campaign. But if you love the idea and the design of VIA shoes, you can get your pair of nice eco-friendly weatherproof shoes for a starting price of $99.
