The shoe aficionados at the Dutch company OAT Shoes recently unveiled their brand new Limited Skin Collection. All of the kicks included in this line are made of 100% certified-biodegrable leather. The first of their kind, these eco-friendly sneaks utilize leather that was tanned using non-toxic agents -- because of this small change in manufacturing, the shoes will completely decompose underground, and all you're left with is some stylish compost.

Available in high and low-tops, these shoes come in 4 ravishing colors: mossy green, cool blue, blood red and chocolate brown. Each one is lined with cozy organic fleece and soft pique cotton. Unfortunately, OAT Shoes will only be manufacturing a limited run of the sneakers, producing 360 pairs available for sale within the European Union.

With sweet styling and ecologically sound construction, these kicks are sure to make a big splash. Locate a pair from the Limited Skin Collection stat, because these shoes are sure to go fast.
