About











Thanks to our AquaScreen Tech™, you don’t have to long-jump rain puddles anymore.

Our coffee-lined membrane creates a watertight barrier to keep your feet totally dry. It's built to be waterproof from the ground up for the shoe’s entire life cycle.

Rens' waterproof membrane, powered by our AquaScreen Tech ™, allows air to pass through easily while maintaining 100% protection from water penetration. We put the material to test by submerging it in water and forcing air through. As you can see below, the membrane allows air to pass through either side while keeping water out, making it totally breathable.  

Rens are moisture-wicking thanks to the coffee and the upper layer dry-fast feature. And they absorb all your foot sweat and release it through the fibers and out of your shoe.  
















Each pair of Rens is made from 300 grams of coffee waste and 6 recycled plastic bottles. So you get all the benefits of an awesome shoe while reducing the amount of plastic waste and methane-producing organic waste in landfills.














Driven by performance and sustainable by default, Rens is a diverse group of risk takers and freethinkers who see a new future in footwear design.

Risks and challenges

We have lived and breathed Rens for every waking minute of the last two years. After a rigorous prototyping process and a tireless search for the best manufacturing and logistics partners, we have the highest level of confidence in our ability to provide the best quality sneaker to every one of our backers.

We know that we make some bold claims but we are driven to exceed your high expectations. All of the pictures shown are working prototypes that perform at the level of the claims listed above. That being said, they are still prototypes and we are working to improve them every day. Specifically, we are working to make our breathable waterproof membrane even thinner to provide even more comfort.

We realize that every project is unique in the challenges it faces and we know there will be circumstances out of our control. In these cases, we are committed to communicating with you with the utmost sense of sincerity and transparency for every bump in the road.
