A pair of kicks made primarily from coffee may not be mind-blowing enough since it isn’t a new concept but this new pair of kicks from CCILU may stop you on your track. Folks, this is the GreenPlax Fish 3-in-1 Sustainable Aqua Shoes.
Each pair is made from 10 plastic bottles and believe it or not, 20g fish scales. There’s nothing fishy about it. In fact, it is the opposite because it is regenerating marine debris into sustainable footwear. How’s that not to love, right?
Sustainability in an unconventional way is surely a highlight but it is certainly not the only highlight. As you may have already noticed, the GreenPlax Fish 3-in-1 Sustainable Aqua Shoes which means it offers you three ways of wearing.
It has three individual components, namely, GreenPlax Perforated EVA Upper, a UMOFIL Collagen Moisturizing Indoor Shoes, and a GreenPlax Water-friendly Insole.
Wearing the UMOFIL Collagen Moisturizing Indoor Shoes in the GreenPlax Perforated EVA Upper, with the insole, resulting in comfy daily kicks while slipping on the GreenPlax Upper with just the insole turned it into a pair of aqua kicks suitable for camping and beach/lake/riverside activities.
And then there is the UMOFIL Collagen Moisturizing Indoor Shoes, which as the name implies, function as a pair of indoor footwear.
The GreenPlax Perforated EVA Upper is made of 30% recycled plastic bottles and 70% Eco-EVA and boasts an anatomically supportive TarSole design as well as an ergonomic flex pattern promise to support every bone and joint. Meanwhile, the outsole provides a strong grip and is anti-slip.
The UMOFIL Collagen Moisturizing Indoor Shoes, on the other hand, is a hugging, sock-like footwear with non-slip silicon dots. Each pair is made from 20% recycled plastic bottles yarn and 25% collagen peptides made from fish scales – extracted through UMORFIL technology – which is 3x more moisturizing than polyester.
Its creator claims that the UMOFIL Collagen Moisturizing Indoor Shoes can protect sensitive skin and cracked heels, has moisture-wicking properties, and is 99% anti-bacterial. Doing so while providing comfortable, hydrating, and temperature-regulating wear.
