Knitwear for Norm Shoes

“The entirely recyclable and compostable sneaker is created
out of only three bio-based materials. We developed a knitted
upper made from dog hair that was shed while grooming and
would otherwise have been discarded.”

“Norm Shoes go beyond sustainability! The 3D knitted upper
is entirely knitted in one piece without creating any waste:
even the lace loops are integrated in the design.”

‘We partnered with Rhenoflex for the development
of reinforcement materials that don’t affect the air
permeability and flexibility of knitted fabric in a negative
way. Our involvement ranged from extensive market
research to testing the behaviour of newly created
formulas on knitted swatches and in actual sneaker
designs that we developed at our Lab.’
