This week's Shoe Of The Week is the environmentally conscious go-anywhere CODE sneaker from Asportuguesas! Read on to find out more about Asportuguesas' unique approach to sustainability. 👇
You might not have heard of Asportuguesas yet, but they're making waves worldwide for creating quality, sustainable & eco-friendly footwear. CODE (pictured above) features the cork soles which have become Asportuguesas' hallmark.
The cork oak is the only tree whose bark is self-regenerating. This allows for it be extracted every 9 years. Thanks to this unique feature, cork can be harvested without damaging the cork oak, allowing it to live on average up to 200 years!
CODE uses the cork harvested from these trees for a sole which is not only sustainably sourced but also lightweight and impact resistant too.
