Pangaia Introduces Zero-Waste Sneaker

Made from plant-based “leather” and recycled rubber.

Pangaia, known for its eco-friendly loungewear, is expanding its product lineup to include a pair of zero-waste sneakers made from plant-based leather.

The minimalist style utilizes waste from the wine industry — specifically, the skin, stalks and seeds of grapes — and turns the runoff into an environmentally friendly textile. The low-top sneaker, handmade at a local family factory in Italy, arrives in black and white colorways with tonal stitching and laces. Sans-serif text at the lateral of each shoe announces its sustainable production method: “THIS SNEAKER IS MADE FROM GRAPE LEATHER AND THE SOLE IS MADE FROM RECYCLED RUBBER, IT IS CIRCULAR IN PRODUCTION AND DESIGN.”

Pangaia’s grape “leather” sneaker retails for $245 USD at the Pangaia website.
