This page shows the renewable materials used in & around the shoe all of which use natural materials to the same high standards as used in current footwear
The red layer tries use the inspiration of the human form by acting as the capillary system found under the skin very similar to the footwear above. (The new Puma McQueen series also uses the human make-up as inspiration).
