Latest News

Launched as the world’s first to market, biodegradable shoe, Blueview is a new and sustainable footwear brand that is dedicated to protecting our environment from the dangers of plastic pollution. 

As a revolution in the footwear market, this sneaker uses innovative and plant-based materials in the form of Soleic and PlantKnit, for a sustainable shoe that provides maximum comfort and durability. 

Revolutionary material

The team spent more than six years researching and developing Soleic which is the world’s first high-quality, renewable and fully biodegradable polyurethane foam, as a base for the Blueview shoe. It supports the arch whilst working as a durable cupsole and outsole.

Combining this innovation with world-class design and manufacturing to complete the Blueview Pacific, we are excited to provide consumers with a revolutionary footwear experience.”

Blueview only uses environmentally friendly, vegan materials. And acting within these values it has conducted durability and SmartLast tests at Heelux Labs to ensure the strength and durability of this shoe design. 

“As a surfer, I’ve seen firsthand how our oceans are being affected by plastic pollution,” said Tom Cooke, Blueview Co-Founder and President. “By uniting my expertise in the footwear industry with the advancements developed by our science team, I am proud to provide our customers with access to the world’s first biodegradable shoe.”
