Handmade shoes assembled with rope
Delivery is around the end of June.
Elastic is used for the instep, and it can be adjusted and attached with Velcro.
It is designed for both high insteps and low insteps.
The insole is made of PU material, which has long-lasting comfortable cushioning.
The outsole is made of ultra-lightweight RUBBER MIXED EVA FOAM, which is light and comfortable, yet has excellent wear resistance.
More than 90% of shoes on the market are made using glue.
These glues, along with other chemicals, produce toxic fumes that contaminate the work environment.
This is harmful to the workers’ health. Even with a good ventilation system, it is nearly impossible to eliminate the fumes completely.
Loper was born with a desire to improve these conditions by creating a production system that is safer and healthier for the people involved in the shoe-making process.
Solvent-based glues, often used in manufacturing shoes, contain a component called volatile organic compounds (VOCs.) These chemical components are subject to regulation as substances that pollute the atmosphere.
Loper does not use glues to put the uppers and the soles together, thus contributes to keeping the clean atmosphere.
Loper soles’s are made from a chlorine free material. This means it does not emit harmful dioxins during the incineration process.
Safe for the planet = safe for everyone.
