Sustainable Luxury Timeless Sneakers

Dalgado Unveils Its New Collection of Minimalist Sneakers

— September 5, 2019 — Social Good
Dalgado is a German brand that "opposes mass-consumption" and instead focuses on creating long-lasting minimalist sneakers from sustainable materials that were ethically sourced. These timeless shoes boast a streamlined silhouette with a chunky rubber sole. The versatile minimalist sneakers can take you from the office to the bar thanks to its sophisticated aesthetic and the classic shoe is available in multiple colorways and materials.

These luxury sneakers are handmade in Portugal using rawhides that are a by-product of the meat industry that would otherwise go to waste. These leathers are then sustainably tanned "in full compliance with REACH, a European Initiative ensuring environmentally-friendly and safe production and tanning processes." Moreover, the artisans making the shoes are fairly compensated and work in safe and controlled production workspaces.

The Dalgado minimalist sneakers are available for pre-order on Kickstarter with expected delivery in December 2019.
