Sneakers. Made out of coffee. Let that sink in for a minute. It's no wonder these 100% waterproof, breathable, upcycled, odour-resistant kicks by Rens surpassed their crowdfunding goal by a country mile!
Each pair of Rens is made from 300 grams of coffee waste and six recycled plastic bottles. So you get all the benefits of an awesome shoe while recycling plastic and methane-producing organic waste. Bingo!
As a bonus, these bad boys are both 100% waterproof AND naturally odour-absorbant. Wait, what!? It turns out that coffee is useful for far more than just boosting morning productivity. When upcycled into an antibacterial coffee-infused liner, it creates a watertight seal that remains incredibly breathable, absorbs foot sweat and eliminates odours for the shoe's entire life-cycle.
