The casual low-top sneaker style shoes with chunky sole made with piñatex. This innovative material is prevenient from the residue of the pineapple industry. It consists in using pineapple leaf fibers to obtain a biodegradable, renewable and cruelty free textile.

These modern and dynamic shoes have a sporty sneaker style. The robust soles and uppercut add originality and a contemporary look. To all of this we add the cushioned cut around the ankle in the same brown shade as the label on the tongue that matches the sole color. It is an attractive model that matches a wide range of looks.

Made of hypoallergenic materials and free from environmental toxins, they stand out for being breathable (preventing suffocation and excessive foot sweat) and antimicrobial (preventing bad odors). The moisture-wicking footbed is padded with EVA foam. All of this makes for a very comfortable shoe that you can wear without worrying about blisters. They are perfect for both indoors and outdoors.

Pineapple leather, also known as Piñatex, was created by material innovation company Ananas Anam's Dr Carmen Hijosa. Crinkly in its texture, this vegan leather derives from the long leaves that grow alongside pineapples. The leaves would normally be discarded – pineapples only flower and fruit once, and at the end of that process, the leaves are considered waste. Ananas Anam's use of the leaves provides pineapple farmers in the Philippines, where their sources are located, with an additional stream of income. The leaves are transformed into leather by felting the long fibres together to create a substrate. The leftover biomass can also be used as a fertiliser.

Piñatex is made from 80% pineapple leaf and 20% polylactic acid fibres. The material is biodegradable in controlled conditions, but uses a coating made from petroleum resin, which the company is looking to replace with natural resins.
