Eide has a mono-material upper, using felted wool from Woolpower. The design is clean and minimalistic with a sneaker appeal. The felted wool is made by upcycling scrap from Woolpower’s clothes production. The wool upper only has one layer of material, minimizing the use of glue and different materials. Thanks to the excellent natural properties of wool Eide has natural anti-odour qualities as well as great thermo-regulating qualities - being cold when it is warm and warm when it is cold. The soft and comfortable upper together with the cushioning BUGforce™ EVA midsole with BLOOM® foam makes this shoe super comfortable. The perfect lifestyle shoe, combining comfort with a strong sustainability focus.
