They are made from natural latex that is fully biodegradable should they wear out and need to be thrown away.
The shoes are available in 7 colours, from lime green to bubblegum pink, and sizes range from XXS to L.

01M OneMoment, a brand of FIGTREE FACTORY STUDIO S.L., based in Valencia (Spain). We developed, produce and sell the first “100% biodegradable shoes”. Made in Spain, our shoes are made for travel, outdoor and indoor activities. It’s easy to carry because of its ultracompacted size.
01M OneMoment is a new shoe “Made in Spain”, alternative to traditional solutions. It integrates useful, design, functionality and environmental respect.
A modern, sober and elegant style, inspired in Nature, combining technology and designed to offer maximum comfort and grip every step.
Product essence comes from the millenary Amazon Wild Forest indigenous inhabitant’s concept, who painted their feet soles with natural latex, obtained on the Hevea trees, this enabling their movements through the jungle during rain season. This fine latex layer degrades naturally going back to the local environment once used.
A practical solution, natural and sustainable adapted through time by the 01M OneMoment new line. Useful, functional, multi-use shoe made from 100% biodegradable raw materials.
