Native Shoes

Maker of the world's first 100% biodegradable sneakers

Founded in 2009, the Canadian footwear company Native Shoes has dedicated itself to being 100% lifecycle managed by 2023, and the Plant Shoe is the first step towards achieving that goal. The Vancouver-based trainers maker has created the world’s first and only 100 per cent biodegradable sneaker, made entirely from plant-based materials.

Employing natural materials such as organic cotton, linen, olive oil, cork and kenaf means that the aptly named Plant Shoe is able to break down naturally over a comparatively short amount of time. The upper comprises a Native Shoes proprietary material developed in partnership with Piñatex, the company famed for its leather-like material made from a blend of carded pineapple husk and organic cotton. It includes no polyurethane coating – an industry first for this type of material. All other styles are 100% animal-free.
