Canadian footwear brand Native Shoes has released a unisex sneaker made entirely from vegan -friendly materials including eucalyptus, pineapple husk and dried hevea milk. In a bid to offer consumers footwear that is both high-quality and zero-waste, Native Shoes has designed a trainer comprised of plant-derived components that are compostable and free from animal products. According to the company, the US alone throws away at least million pairs of shoes each year, and most end up in landfill. Sneakers are the worst waste culprit, made up of mostly plastic or chemically treated materials that make them impossible to break down.

New Wing has grown rapidly from with a production run of pairs of shoes per day until today where the factory now produces more than 90, pairs of shoes per month. Our range of leather shoes has increased to suit the world of fashion and retail demand, we also well adapted in quick turn-around on orders and switching production of styles when necessary. The heart of a pair of shoe is the material that goes into it, as well as New Wing uses the highest quality materials. Fundamental to the success of New Wing is our commitment to our business partners and customers.
With the construction of this new system our production has specialized in manufacturing of waterproof and breathable leather of premium quality for military, police and firemen footwear, boots for mountain climbing, hiking and hunt, motorsport and golf shoes as well as orthopaedic, medicine and children's footwear. Each day the factory refines 18 tons of raw leather and produces sq m of finished leather. The high quality leather of the Simmental type that is used in the production is obtained from the suppliers in Croatia and in the EU and VIVIANI distributes the finished products to the European and Western markets and, in smaller part, to the domestic market in the Republic of Croatia. That what distinguishes us from the competition is the production of smaller batches of the leather of premium quality and specific colouring that satisfy the high chemical, physical, health and other requirements and our consumer oriented policy whose requests we strive to fulfil promptly and respecting the highest quality standards. Immense experience of our employees and long-time tradition of production where VIVIANI has always strived to enhance the production process, strict control of each production phase that takes place under one roof, strictly controlled origin of the leather used in the production and proven traceability from field to feet are the prerequisites for the creation of the finished product under the name NATURAL FOOTPRINT. Energy drives everything. The enthusiasm and the energy of our employees on one side are responsible for our success and we try to continually and responsibly enhance the consumption of that energy because good motivation is what leads to excellent results. On the other side, we strive to reasonably use electric energy and to diminish its consumption in the production and the new more energy efficient machinery has contributed to that. Furthermore, awareness of the harmfulness of CO2 emission has resulted in our efforts to reduce it to the minimal level and that is why in our production we use electric energy exclusively from the renewable sources, that is, the energy without CO2 — Green Energy.

Shoemaking is the process of making footwear. Originally, shoes were made one at a time by hand. Traditional handicraft shoemaking has now been largely superseded in volume of shoes produced by industrial mass production of footwear, but not necessarily in quality , attention to detail, or craftsmanship. Shoemakers also known as cordwainers may produce a range of footwear items, including shoes , boots , sandals , clogs and moccasins. Such items are generally made of leather , wood , rubber , plastic , jute or other plant material, and often consist of multiple parts for better durability of the sole , stitched to a leather upper part. Trades that engage in shoemaking have included the cordwainer's and cobbler's trades. Today, shoes are often made on a volume basis, rather than a craft basis. For most of history, shoemaking has been a handicraft, limited to time-consuming manufacturing by hand. Traditional shoemakers used more than 15 different techniques for making shoes. Some of these were: pegged construction, English welted machine-made versions are referred to as " Goodyear welted " after the inventor of the technique , goyser welted, Norwegian, stitchdown, turnout, German sewn, moccasin, bolognese stitched, and blake-stitched. The most basic foot protection, used since ancient times in the Mediterranean area , was the sandal, which consisted of a protective sole, held to the foot with leather thongs or cords of various materials.
