Rens, a Finnish sneaker startup, has created the world's first performance sneaker that is climate neutral. Company founders Jesse Tran and Son Chu were driven by environmental responsibility to create a high-caliber performance shoe that was eco-conscious. The brand's strong commitment and perseverance led them to create the NOMAD - a sneaker made from coffee.
From manufacturing to design, the NOMAD is all around a climate-neutral product. The company is working closely with ClimatePartner to reduce and offset all carbon emissions throughout the manufacturing process. The shoe is designed with increased ventilation and is 100% waterproof. While the ground coffee material helps keep odors and bacteria from developing. The shoe design is sleek and simple - it is an off-white shoe with light grey details. The shoe is soon launching on Kickstarter.
