LEGO Shoes And Shoes For Life – Lower Your Footprint With LYF Shoes.

LYF Shoes - Pinstripe StyleLYF Shoes must know something about how much people love LEGOs because they’re using the same building-block principles to change the way we buy, repair and wear our shoes. Here’s more about LYF Shoes:

“Individual components are made from single-source sustainable materials and are assembled in 90 seconds to meet a customer’s request. This bypasses those monolithic shoe assembly factories which use toxic glues and ship boxes of air halfway around the world. Our technology allows us to pursue many more fashion, fit and ecological advances than the big brands can – while still being competitive with them on price.

We’ve also unlocked unlimited creative expression using digital integration tools, and created the first LYF Cyclable shoe.”

LYF Shoes are currently on fundraising site Kickstarter.
