It’s built to last, but after you’ve worn it to death, send it back to us and we’ll return it harmlessly to the earth.

The DEGENERATE contains ZERO suffocating plastic so feet stay dry and cool, while next-gen plant-powered technology finally delivers a sneaker that can keep up with the circularity of mother nature.All Plants. ZERO Plastic.

Handmade. Plant Based. Plastic free.


    To create a breathable, light and flexible shoe that provides protection, durability, comfort and traction, all without using any plastics or petrochemicals, we had to reach back in time to rediscover old-school shoe making techniques used in the pre-plastics era.


    We’ve developed real-world applications that turn our sneaker into valuable inputs for new soil products, allowing UNLESS to use the decomposition process to birth something entirely new.


    NFW (Natural Fiber Welding) is our ALL plants, NO plastic material innovation partner. We are the first to use their PLIANT™ and TUNERA™ products to create The DEGENERATE, the world’s first regenerative sneaker.

A little dirt don’t hurt!
