Urban skatewear trainer brand Vans have released a summer shoe as part of their premium ‘Off The Wall’ collection. The ‘Prelow’ trainer has been given a sustainable makeover, in the form of a unique cork finish. The cork derives from the bark of the environmentally friendly mediterranean cork oak tree, which helps to support the world’s highest concentrations of forest biodiversity. The cork oak landscape also protects endangered animals such as the Iberian Lynx and is self renewing once stripped.
The trainer comes complete with fabric lining, black eyelets and a foam footbed for comfort as well as sustainability.
