Brands have really stepped up their footwear game in recent years, racing to develop and launch innovative new styles, materials and designs to entice buyers to choose their next pair of shoes. You may think footwear has been pretty much perfected, but Rens have launched onto the scene with a shoe that is totally different to anything available – something entirely new and unique.
Rens have launched the world’s first 100% waterproof shoe made from the recycled grounds of 21 cups of coffee, and 6 plastic recycled bottles – creating a shoe that is not only super durable, wearable, comfortable and Stylish, but also sustainable and kind on the environment.
Every pair of Rens has an upper made from a mixture of coffee yarn (from used coffee grounds) and recycled polyester (made with post-consumer plastic). Each shoe also includes a coffee-infused inner lining designed with a breathable, ultra-lightweight material. 100% waterproof, the shoes adapt to your movements to provide all-day comfort.
Stylish and versatile, Rens sneakers can be worn on the metro or on the mountain. What’s more, coffee’s natural antibacterial properties make Rens odor-resistant for their entire lifecycle.
Rens are available right now on Kickstarter from only $89, a huge 40% off the retail price:
