Made out of 97% natural materials
We are MIRET
We used to make shoes
Sneakers for other fashion brands to be more exact. We made around a million pairs for them. We have seen the industry from the inside, things most people will never get to see.
This is what we saw
The materials used to make shoes are toxic to nature, and we forgot that humans are a part of nature, and nature is a part of us.
Vision of a better world
6 years ago we set out to redesign sneakers from bottom up to make them compatible with nature. MIRET was born.
What do you mean - shoes are toxic?
Shoes are made out of synthetics or leather
Outsoles, midsoles, insoles, sponges, synthetic textiles, glues... they are all petroleum derivatives. And will probably end up as micro-plastics.
Leather is a horror story
85% of world leather is Chromium-tanned, and Chromium is 4th most toxic pollutant in the world. We could talk hours about leather.
20.000.000.000 pairs of plastic and leather shoes were manufactured just in 2019. That's enough to circle the planet with 300 lines of shoes.
What about recycling
Shoes are nearly impossible to recycle. Less then 5% of shoes are recycled. Fact.
Effect on the environment?
Footwear has a detrimental effect on the environment. Fact.
You can change all that.
Natural materials are better
Far better than plastic
Not only can they substitute synthetic materials, but in many ways they are far better than plastic.
Aristotle was right
"If one way be better than another, that you may be sure is nature's way."
10 amazing plants
MIRET sneakers are crafted out of 10 amazing plants: hemp, kenaf, linen, cork, oak wood, corn, wood cellulose, jute, eucalyptus, rubber tree and New Zealand wool.
Comfort without compromise
Soft and cosy from the moment you put them on. Breathable, lightweight and flexible with a super low impact on nature.
The MIRET outsole is softer and more flexible than any other rubber out there. It is pure 100% natural latex harvested from rubber trees.
Long walks - approved. MIRET ultra-light insole is ergonomically shaped. It is made out of cork throughout. It is even certified for food safety, so your dog can chew on them safely.
Watch water repellency at work
"These are my second pair and they won't be the last!"
"...my favourite piece of clothing because of what they represent.
"...beautiful, exactly like on the photos. I like them a lot, they fit nicely, very comfortable, I will love them and wear them for a vey long time."
