Woden Pernille Bright White
Classic and modern sneakers with beautiful fish leather detailing. The upper is crafted in calf leather for superb breathability.
At least 50% of all the polyester and PU parts are made out of recycled PET bottles. That includes the non-leather parts on top, for some styles the backing of the shoes, and even the yarn to stitch them. WODEN got rid of the inks to print logo and size, these are now lasered on, which is way more ecological.
The calf leather is recycled as much as possible, and ofcourse they keep using their famous fish leather, which is originally a waste product from the Nordic fishing industry. Cork is a natural material that is carefully scraped from the cork tree so that the tree remains standing and can form new bark. It is recognized by the WWF, Rainforest Alliance and other environmental organizations as a sustainable material. Cork is instrumental in ensuring a healthy environment in the shoe as well as good comfort.
WODEN used new techniques in the sole, making them even better and avoid the use of glue as much as possible. The removable insole consists of naturally shock-absorbing cork on top of the extra-soft NATURAL SOFT midsole, while the outsole is in natural rubber combined with at least 10% recycled rubber.
