Sneakers that combine art and sustainabilityLinkkens sneakers are made of natural and sustainable materials such as high-quality leather and recycled plastic bottles, with soles and lasts carefully adapted to the needs of city people.
The Linkkens brand strives to create products that are more than just shoes. Linkkens wants to break the status quo and innovate the way a model is built and the materials it is made out of, while paying close attention to its ecological footprint. “Because we have to and because we can do it,” says the company.
The shoes of the Dutch brand “are brought to life by passionate people with a free spirit and talent” that in addition to paying extreme attention to functionality, anatomy and minimalism, sprinkle everything with the artistic spirit typical of Linkkens. This leads to the creation of shoes with an exceptional and distinctive look.
Working, running, cycling, eating, dancing or shopping… our shoes must be comfortable and perfect for all these occasions.
With regard to sustainability issues, Linkkens has focused on four key elements:
- Instead of conventional synthetic materials, 100% recycled materials from used plastic bottles are used.
- The ink used for the ART projects is water-based and OEKO certified.
- Only organic materials such as full-grain leather is used for the uppers, while vegetable tanned (i.e. free of heavy metals) leathers are used for the lining.
- All the soles are made with an average of 10% recycled rubber.
