Shoes – we all wear them, some of us have more than others, and they come in all shapes, colours, and sizes. This we know, but a company in Spain, Figtree Factory SL, has developed a different kind of shoe called the 01M One Moment that I, for one, have never seen before. The Valencia based company produces and sells the first 100% biodegradable shoe.
By marrying its respect for the environment with maximizing comfort, this eco-friendly shoe from its production process to its compact packaging was designed in a sustainable manner with the aim of bringing to market a unisex, multi-use shoe that offers a barefoot walking sensation.
The result of years of research and development, 01M OneMoment shoes combine modern-day technology with a traditional ‘shoe’ concept of the Amazon’s indigenous citizens who paint “their feet soles with natural latex, obtained on the Hevea trees, this enabling their movements through the jungle during rain season…(the) fine latex layer degrades naturally going back to the local environment once used.”
Each shoe moulds softly to the individual’s foot, and was designed to provide maximum versatility by a team of architects, product designers and shoemakers as an innovative alternative to the traditional shoe.
Thank you, 01M OneMoment for making our world wonderful.
