Viron is the most recent brainchild of Parisian designer Mats Rombaut, blending his iconic futuristic design with practicality and sustainability. Viron’s beliefs: for the planet, the animals and people, makes his brand 100% vegan/PETA certified and his supply-chain fully circular —all the materials are recycled.
The name itself is inspired from the French and English word “environment”—viron.
“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.
