1L11-01 & 1L11-02 SNEAKERS

Our Sneakers are developed from the beginning to reduce their impact to the maximum. From the first drawing to the delivery, everything is taken into account.

For the Upper, we used the 3D Knitting Technology. For those who are not familiar with that, it's a really complex loom that knit yarns together, to produce a single piece, ready to be assembled, shoe upper. It reduces the need for raw material and reduce the waste production.

But we don't stop there. We use the same principles for every components and processes we use, making sure we have the best quality, produced ethically with the lowest impact.

OUR COST STRUCTURE

As you will see on the picture, our price include a variety of costs. From the raw materials, to the production passing by the transport.

We select premium materials that are more durable and we ensure that everyone gets a decent pay through the supply chain. This has an off course an impact on the final price.

Low Impact

How we calculate

Based on existing studies, we evaluate the impact of every single components and raw materials we use. We add to that the traveling distance that each one of them have to do until the final products are delivered to our warehouse. Finally we taken into account the production and a factor for the end of life of our products.

We don't have a solution yet to give a second, third or fourth life to our products but we're working on it and it will come in the near future.

We plant two trees to be

CLIMATE POSITIVE

The impact for one pair of Norm is only 6,5 kg of CO2 equivalent. This is 80% lower than the industry average. But the emissions of our 1L11-01 are compensated by planting two trees for each pair, which means they are in reality negative (each tree compensate 100kg of CO2 eq. during it's lifetime)
