OAT Shoes won second prize at the Green Fashion Awards during the Amsterdam International Fashion week! We’re so stoked! It was such a hectic day yesterday starting with an early rise at 5.30 to be in time to set up our gear and get the models ready for the show. Mariel had been running around all week to get our wheelbarrow looking spotlessly white, hooking us up with moss from the ‘dakdokters’ -roof doctors-, finding the perfect bonsai tree, arranging the models, transportation, the hottest white briefs for our models and all the things that you need but don’t know about to make Adam and Eve walk out of Paradise with the Shoe of Life!

So we got to the Westerpark venue around 7 and explored the hectic backstage area where models and designers were groping for coffee to cope with what was going to be a long and hectic day. Our eyes opened with caffeine, we got to work to make our wheelbarrow the best lookin’ wheelbarrow ever to grace a runway! -the models were the easy part, they were looking pretty great right off the bat-. In the meantime a crew from MTV came by to tell the world about the first biodegradable shoes that bloom on the world -and shoot our preparations for the show- so in about two weeks everyone in Holland will be able to enjoy watching Chris and Mariel mucking about with iron wire, sneakers and moss.. but you might also get a second peak at our handsome Adam and Eve walking the runway AND watch us win the second prize! YEAH!

  • I love this concept. I subscribe to a green newsletter in the U.S. that featured your shoes, then I checked out your location of Amsterdam. This is very funny as we just relocated to The Netherlands. Ha! I'll have to look you up on our next trip to Amsterdam.

  • If you follow us on Facebook, you'll be continuously updated on our progress producing the shoes. If you want (and live in Europe) you can also pre-order the shoes: if you send us your size and which model you want, we'll notify you as soon as they come in.

  • I don't know where the 'holly' came from, but the Virgin Collection will carry a bouquet of perennial wildflower seeds, so no holly (yet!). The shoes are meant to be buried with the seeds in the tongue, so they can degrade and the flowers bloom where you've buried them. Although I guess you could use them as flower pots as well.. Good idea!

    Posted by admin on 11 February 2011
  • I want!! The model and the shoes! Come to the USA asap!

    Posted by Kim on 11 February 2011
  • I'm curious that the plant will grow out from sneaker or the sneaker just be the Flowerpot? and the “holly” Virgin Collection will grow out holly,right? thanks

  • I'm absolutely loving the idea, can't wait to be able to buy them. Could it be possible to be notified when they become available ?

  • We'll have a webshop after we launch this spring, but you're always welcome to swing by Amsterdam for a visit ;)

    Posted by admin on 07 February 2011
  • This picture is great, and the shoes are even greater, but where can I buy them?? Do I have to come to Amsterdam or is there a webshop somewhere?
