Wado has only had one goal in mind: to make you effortlessly shift your lifestyle towards a more sustainable one. To help make that change, we offer you sneakers you don’t have to pay more for... and what’s more important, that you don’t have to compromise on design.
The first collection is inspired by the 80s fashion: a retro shape and colors that are aligned with our perception of nature, using the off white color as the basis. As a token of our reforestation activity we have added a detail of cork on the tongue, which will somehow appear in all our products:
The shoes are made out of Chromium-free leather, which helps to avoid the dangerous effects of this toxic product on the shoe-makers and also on the environment. It gives maximum quality to the shoes, something that is unquestionable.
It is estimated that within 100 years there will be no rainforests. The rate of deforestation equals to loss of 20 football fields every minute, which annually represents 7.5 milion Ha.
Wado tries to fight against deforestation allowing anyone to take part in this project by planting 2 trees for each sale. Wado's collaboration with the NGO We Forest, enables them to train local communities to protect and regenerate the forests they live in. In addition, this action also generates employment and food resources.
