PRODUCING CIRCULAR SHOES

29 April 2021

Because we at Van den Breekel Schoenen find it important that sustainability is high on the agenda, it is one of the points we pay close attention to in our shoe production. For years, we have noticed that the production of trainers and shoes is often not environmentally friendly. We therefore want the Midden-Brabant region to be on the map within 5 years as ‘the place to be’ when it comes to sustainable design, circular manufacturing and distribution of fully recyclable shoes. We want to achieve this together with 360 Circular and other partners from Brabant.

PRODUCING SHOES IN AN ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY AND USER-FRIENDLY WAY

The Brabant shoe industry has come a long way since it started in the Langstraat. The Waalwijk region still has the largest concentration of shoe traders. Of course, a lot has changed in all those years. For example, nowadays mass production has moved to Asia. Van den Breekel Schoenen is now adding to these developments. By working with 360 Circular (part of 360 Group) in Tilburg, an authority in the field of circular up-cycling, we have developed a plastic shoe that can be used to make new shoes.

In addition, the vegan materials we use are sturdy, so they last long and contribute to a more sustainable society. Think of wood, cork, organic cotton, recycled textiles, apple fibers etc.

SHOE DEVELOPMENT: FROM IDEA TO DESIGN

16 March 2021

Everything is created because someone came up with a genius idea. Just as we at Van den Breekel Schoenen once came up with the idea of producing innovative shoes that fit in with today’s fashion. Every design starts with an idea, before the durable shoe is finally launched on the market. We like to involve you in that process.
