Whether you’re going to be heading for the beach or engaging in some water sports this summer, shoes made using sustainable algae-based BLOOM foam may be the ideal kit for the whole family.
Ultra Bloom is an amphibious shoe made using algae-based BLOOM foam – a sustainable alternative to petrochemical only foams. A lightweight and breathable closed-toe style, the Ultra Bloom is designed to be the ultimate adventure shoe for use on land or sea. The shoes are available in kids sizes as well as adult sizes.
BLOOM is a high-performance foam which uses algae biomass as its base, the first sustainable alternative to petroleum-based EVA foams. The process of creating the material is itself beneficial for the environment, cleaning and restoring waterways when harvested.
The Ultra Bloom shoes, a collaboration between Vivobarefoot and Finisterre, are available from the Vivobarefoot website.
