We are MIRET and we have combined the strongest natural fibres to craft sneakers which are kind to your feet as much as they are kind to nature. Not only can they substitute synthetic materials, but in many ways they are far better than plastic. We are using 10 amazing plants: hemp, kenaf, linen, cork tree, wood, corn, jute, eucalyptus, rubber tree and New Zealand wool to craft our 97% ecological MIRET sneakers. We are industry insiders who have used our manufacturing expertise to redesigned sneakers from the bottom up, making them compatible with nature.
IDA Design Awards 2020 Gold medal.

Bio
MIRET is developing environmentally advanced footwear that are designed to have the lowest possible impact on the environment.

Our 97% bio-based sneakers are an alternative to highly unsustainable products, without compromising on design, durability, or comfort.

Our mission is to raise awareness of the negative ecological impact of the footwear industry and empower people to choose sustainability. Miret is not just a sneaker – it is a vehicle for change.
