Woden Malou Cork Black
The new WODEN collection is here. Even better than before! WODEN invested a lot in different sorts of new techniques and measures, making the new FIFTY collection more sustainable than ever. And we thought it was impossible, but the sole have been improved too and are even more comfortable. Yup, that's pretty mindblowing.
Malou is new to the family, and we think she's so cool! Love at first sight. She has a combination of cork, calf leather and fish leather parts with some pretty colour accents. And... she's as comfy as Sophie! 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, 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 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.
