Quality and sustainability are the key points of the new SH+ART brand founded by Italian designer Mirko Tocchio: a luxury sneaker made in the Marches by the very best Italian artisans with vegan materials, recycled plastics, and an innovative technique that eliminates the use of glue.
‘’The main aim is to demonstrate how sustainability and luxury can go not only hand-in-hand, but that ethical values are fundamental in a maximum concept of exclusivity”.
SH+ART sneakers are in fact exclusively realised with cruelty-free materials, substituting animal leather with bio-based alternatives like for example apple, cactus, or bamboo. All the other components are made from recycled biodegradable plastic, and thanks to an innovative technique, the assembly occurs without the use of glue or other solvents that are harmful to the environment. Finally, the laces in natural jute provide the shoe with an extra special designer touch, in full eco-friendly style.
The first sneakers, proposed in two unisex variants, can only be purchased online in a Made-to-order version, so as to guarantee the exclusivity of the shoes and avoid waste connected to leftover materials in production. This will be followed by the presentation of the entire collection.
