Our LDN Sneakers have been over a year in the making, working with leading shoe component manufacturers across Europe to create one of the most sustainable shoes on the planet.

It’s not been an easy journey. Many of the solutions we’ve developed to create a pair of fully biodegradable sneakers have not been seen before. These sneakers are literally at the cutting edge of sustainable footwear.

They’re not only super sustainable but super cool to look at and super comfy to wear.

The LDN is based on a new WVS sneaker silhouette with a low-cut ankle shape and laces that run low down the vamp. We’ve had many requests to do something like this, and are pleased to announce its arrival.

The Tencel uppers mold around your feet. LDN are breathable and lightweight to wear. They’re fully washable by hand or put in a short cool wash with a towel (to protect from the wash drum).

The Tencel and organic cotton mix linings are really soft, you can wear your LDN Sneakers with or without socks. The linings allow air to circulate around your feet, helping them stay cool. They are also great at wicking moisture away, keeping them dry and hygenic.

The wood fibre and natural latex insoles laid on the Apinat Bio sneaker outsoles provide cushioning, shock absorption and traction as you walk.

    Gorgeous but short lived

    I love these shoes—they’re gorgeous! But the soles are so soft that they wear down very quickly. I’m spending a lot to have them resoled after just two months of non-every day wear.

    heavy but comfortable

    This is a really nice looking sandshoe and is super comfy but for a sandshoe it is on the heavy side. The back can feel heavy on the heel but only if you don't wear socks. I am enjoying wearing them.

    Lovely

    I like these sneakers. They are warm and quite comfortable (the right shoe rubs the top of my foot near toes for some reason).

    I agree with the review below that they do stretch..

    I bought the white version, they damaged quickly. Not very good quality for the price.
