OAT: When shoes bloom!

“External covering for the human foot, usually of leatherand consisting of a more or less stiff or heavy sole and alighter upper part ending a short distance above, at, or below the ankle”.  Beg You pardon…Whaaaat? Ooookay, right, it means kicks!

A lot of You may think that they are common objects made simply for walking or running. Instead for Me lies something else there. I am a sneaker freaker to be honest, so I invest a lot of my time (and money!) wondering around windows shops in search of the sought after Holy Grail. But here I think I found something outrageously different also for those not as much sneaker nuts. Barely imaginable only few years ago, between a coffee shop and a Van Gogh canvas, a fully biodegradable sneaker has been conceived. Some bright folks in Amsterdam manufacture shoes solely with hemp, bio-cotton and cork, together with certified biodegradable plastics. What’s special? Well, instead of dumping, bury them and wait for 6 months. No jokes, those crazy folks at OAT guarantee that you will “watch flowers bloom from your old kicks!”. How is it possible? 100% Natural fibers, a bunch of seeds stored on the forefront, microorganisms in the soil: Mother Earth will take care of the rest.

They assume that “the future of fashion lies in a reconciliation between nature and industry. OAT shoes strives to lead the way to that future”. Visionaries or blank cartridge? Anybody else interested in taking on the “green & style” challenge?

Yours, Gambera Alessandro
