POZ - NEW Cactus Leather Sneakers
A plant-based, cruelty free, sneaker is set to become an excellent, ethical investment gift this Christmas via crowd-funding
Developed by sustainable shoe experts Po-Zu, the new ‘POZ’ sneaker will be one of the first shoes available in the UK to successfully utilise cactus leather and combine it with other natural, plant-based materials to create a comfortable, lightweight and stylish sneaker. This week, the brand launched a campaign to raise funds to bring the sneaker to life.
The collection consists of sneakers and boots that will appeal to the style-conscious and the environmentally conscious customer alike. The sneakers come in Off White in a sleek, minimal design with a trademark, woven double dash ‘pause’ emblem in a choice of 8 colour ways at the tongue and heel.
POZ sneakers and boots are made in Europe in a small family-owned factory in Portugal. Po-Zu only works with manufacturers that adhere to their Supplier Code of Practice, who are committed to ethical manufacturing, have a strict non-toxic policy, and recycle any waste products, including fabric off-cuts and water.
Po-Zu has chosen to support Fashion Revolution and will donate £5 GBP ($6.50 US$/ €5.50 EUR) from the sale of every pair of POZ sneakers and boots to the Fashion Revolution Foundation, to help them drive Cultural, Industry and Policy Change within the fashion industry.
