Starfish Sneakers belongs to the newest collection that intends to return to the essence of life and what we need - shapes inspired by sea creatures, simple shoes, strappy sandals and hyper-comfortable sneakers - the entire collection tells the story of our journey from the sea to space, from the beach to the depths of the sea. It is also an appeal to the non-pollution of the sea - our most precious asset and that balances our planet, a call to return to what is essential, not to waste, to recycle, to redo, to rethink.
