MR P — the house brand from men's style shop MR PORTER — is back with a new piece of footwear, this time delivering an eco-friendly sneaker with a minimalist vibe. But what makes this really interesting is the construction, as it ditches the traditional leather upper in favor of repurposed grape waste (grape skins, stalks, and seeds) sourced from the Italian wine industry.

The sneaker is finished with Margom Italian rubber soles crafted from 30% recycled rubber, organic cotton laces, and microfiber lining for breathability and sweat-resistance made from 100% recycled polyester.

Grab a pair for yourself here in your choice of black or white.
