NEW MOVEMENTS: Premium Sustainable Sneakers For A Better World
Norwegian-based New Movements have launched their second Kickstarter, with a focus on sustainable sneakers, offering authentic, sustainable Scandinavian design sneakers at affordable prices (with 50% off right now).
New Movements will offer two styles in their ‘02 Postpone’ collection, Huk and Åpne, delivering premium quality recycled materials and Scandinavian minimalist design for a fraction of the cost, for an eco-conscious audience who don’t want to downgrade their style to become more sustainable.
By producing sneakers in Europe from circular materials and cleaning up ocean plastic equal to 200 plastic bottles, 2.54kg, for every pair made, New Movements want to make it easy for individuals to take a stand for a more sustainable, circular future.
Each sneaker has sustainability at its core, offering a number of key premium features:
90% recycled and circular materials from European suppliers
Gold-certified Italian leather
Soles made from 80% recycled rubber free of plastic
Premium laces made from recycled plastic bottles
FSC-PEFC certified recycled packaging
Manufactured in Portugal
HUK is a classic Scandinavian street sneaker with a subtle but clear message.
The clean lines and stripped monochromatic design make HUK a safe choice for anyone looking for a classy sneaker to style their favorite outfit with. But this sneaker is all about the sole. The fine, colorful pieces of recycled rubber visible in the outsole are designed to give the sneaker a raw, authentic look, and spark the conversations we just can’t postpone anymore.
ÅPNE is a clean-cut sneaker that celebrates the values and sensibilities of the urban Scandinavian mind.
The classic and unpretentious silhouette is inspired by the clean lines that has made Scandinavian design a world phenomenon. With a generous but humble recycled rubber sole, ÅPNE is made for walking with pride through the streets of your city, while paving the way for a cleaner, more circular urban lifestyle.
