WAES is the world's only plastic-free footwear company, committed to producing beautiful, stylish footwear which leaves no trace.
Their materials are long-lasting yet completely natural, meaning that at the end of a long and useful life if they can't be recycled, they can be composted.
Their zero plastic philosophy extends from their packaging to the tips of their laces, and they are proud to produce footwear which looks after its workers and the planet.
The WAES logo derives from the alchemy symbol for the earth, and the name itself is an acronym of the classical elements of Water, Air, Earth and Sun which defines their manufacturing philosophy of combining science and natural materials.
There are more than 24 billion pairs of shoes made each year from plastic compounds which go straight to landfill, and WAES wants to say, hey, there is another way.
