Seriously, there’s a lot to babble about design these days - from Dutch plastic clogs to rubber dinghies on your feet, we’ve seen it all! And even if we happen to end up standing next to Mr. West in line with the almighty, at least we know: Our designs were timeless, so classic that they were cool again, so functional that it was almost art. Amen, brother - Mic drop!
There are a lot of people out there who deny climate change. Okay, but at least they say it out loud themselves - they’re stupid! We all need to pull together. That’s why sustainability is important to us. Our shoes are made in Spain, the material comes from Italy, so everything is made in Europe. We also strive for sensible supply chains and transport routes. Sure, we’re not 100% carbon neutral, who is? But at least we’re transparent and try to offer the best solution we can. Because greenwashing is like having to wash your shoes after stepping on dog poop: It’s no fun and smells funny.
»Today I woke up a bit tired, the news was shitty. Two idiots are arguing on the street with the engine running, I can hardly get past on my bike. The sun is shining, it’s beautiful. We’ll meet in the park, the picnic blanket is enough for us , but no: I only drink wine from a glass. Manners make us human. The world looks down on us, we are so small. I can get drunk here too. My world is an oyster, but I look damn good in it – I am MERCURY!«
