Hot News :: Ballet flat

Visit Website

Hot news! Designer Colin Lin hit upon a very exciting idea by using recycled newspaper to create an environmentally friendly ballet flat. These adorable flats are crafted from recycled Chinese language newspapers that are woven into a lattice pattern, then dipped in plastic for weather protection and durability. The coating gives the shoe a waterproof protection, so it’s actually better than fabric or leather.

Each pair uses just three to three and a half pages of newsprint and is handcrafted with the help of cottage industry artists in China. Cutting back on factory production methods and making every shoe one of a kind.

Newspaper recycled upper coated with plastic. Manmade sock and lining. Patent leather heel counter. Leather outsole.
