WOOLSHOE

Design

"Knitted knee high boots with vintage pearl buttons and luxury felt linning."

Upper: off-white and blue wool yarn and off-white wool felt.

Buttons: mother of pearl

Sole: tunit (vulcanized rubber and SBR rubber)

Heel: plastic, tunit and black excess bovine leather.

Sustainability: Upper is made from wool which is biodegradable, micro plastic free and naturally renewable material. The shoes have button closure with real vintage mother of pearl buttons from the 1940s which can be cut of easily and reused when the shoes is no longer fit for use. The sole is constructed with one layer of tunit and the heel is coated with excess leather. Between the knit and a felt lining there are heel and toe stiffeners made from vegetable tanned leather which is more environmetally friendly tanning process than chrome tanned leather.
