We’re right in the midst of the two-year partnership between GEOX and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), and the Italian brand has released an adorable children’s footwear collection that’ll keep the young ones running around in comfort, while also contributing to the WWF.
The Spring/Summer 2020 capsule collection sees recognisable animal prints and designs across 14 pairs of shoes for both toddlers and young children. Featuring designs inspired by cheetahs, tigers, pandas and more, each pair has been crafted with sustainable leather and recycled cotton fibre, while the outsoles have been made from at least 15% recycled rubber, maintaining the brands efforts to preserving wildlife on earth.
With the junior collection created for those 6 and above, we see a catchy “WE ARE ALL WILDLIFE” slogan across some of the selection, while the others are riddled with illustrations of some of the animals the WWF is committed to protecting, including the endangered giant panda.
The outsoles have been designed to provide an efficient grip, so your child can run around without any worries — these sturdy kicks are also the perfect pairs to help your kids practice tying their first shoelaces!
On the other hand, the toddler’s range features cartoon caricatures of the same animals across a selection of sandals and sneakers, all fitted with handy velcro straps for easy wear. Fitted with GEOX’s Softly Cushioned and Flexy Systems, your little ones will be making their first steps with ease. Each removable footbed has also been lined with chrome-free, non-toxic, child-safe leather to prevent dryness on their dainty soles.
GEOX has also gone further with their commitment to protecting the earth — each pair comes in shoeboxes made with FSC certified paper, with tissue paper made from pure cellulose, as well as 100% recycled paper padding, ensuring your purchase gets to your doorstep safely and sustainably. Between 1 August 2019 and 30 September 2021, each purchase of GEOX for WWF footwear will also contribute €2 to the WWF, as well as a guaranteed annual contribution of €200,000.
Only a limited selection of the collection is available in Singapore, including certain variations of the Kilwi Girl high and low tops, as well as the Alonisso Boy high tops.
