However, this sleek sustainably-made shoe will never go out of style. Constructed from naturally sourced and sustainable materials and finished with Eco-Ortholite® insoles covered with naturally sustainable cork veneer cover, the Bal sneaker is as sustainable as it is stylish.

All brands aim to send out standard items within two working days of your order being received, however please note that there have been unprecedented delays due to COVID.
