“WE LIKE TO THINK OF THE EARTH AS OUR HOME, AND TREAT HER JUST LIKE THAT. WE USE AS FEW NEW MATERIALS AS POSSIBLE AND CREATED A SYSTEM WHICH IS BASED ON REPURPOSING THE WASTE OF OTHERS”
The MaterialsUnlike any other boot brand, Viron’s footwear is almost entirely made from upcycled, recycled or natural materials.
