With her colorful unisex ocean plastic espadrilles, SEADS founder Agnes Wagter not only creates relaxed-elegant summer vibes. Her circular shoe label also contributes to reducing and recycling ocean and packaging waste and draws attention to one of our biggest environmental problems: plastic waste.
Originally, Agnes Wagter, blessed with a size 43 shoe herself, wanted to design a line of women’s shoes for large feet.
During a walk on the beach after a stormy night, with washed-up plastic waste scattered all around her, she spontaneously changed her concept. She still wanted to make shoes. But shoes with a mission: to Give the Ocean back to Nature.
The model? Espadrilles. Reinterpreted in a modern way with a sneaker knit upper in 3 styles: classic, as slip-on, and as joggers with laces.
And of course, the bright good-mood SEADS shoes are produced in sizes 36 to 46. Because every size matters!
Currently, 12 million tons of plastic waste enter our oceans every year. That’s equivalent to the contents of one garbage truck dumped into the ocean every minute. This trend is rising, despite the growing awareness. SEADS sneaker-espadrilles are waste transformers, and the future of fashion is circular. Make your statement with the trademark «Living Coral» colored sole and wear what you stand for.
