The apple eco leather is produced in Italy using waste from the apple juice industry. Every year this industry leaves behind a significant amount of waste. This waste, consisting of apple peels and cores, is developed into a new raw material: an ecological alternative to animal leather. Moreover, apple leather is a cellulose-based material with as much as 55% of recycled apple fiber. In short, it’s a durable, bio-based and high-quality alternative to leather with a low environmental impact.

Komrads commits making a promise to create a sneaker with the lowest possible impact on the planet we live on.
It’s a promise to produce a sneaker made entirely of re-used and recycled materials, without having to harvest any natural recourses. A sneaker that didn’t involve killing or harming animals or chopping down rainforests and replacing them with huge rubber plantations. A sneaker that is a genuine solution to the problem, part of the circular economy.
It’s a promise to create the most sustainable and ecological sneaker, without compromising on quality, comfort and design.
