A sneaker that’s comfortable, long-lasting and sustainable. Made for the styling of your favorite daily pieces.
We started New Movements with one simple goal: walk with impact for a better and greener tomorrow. Unlike other sneakers, we have made a comfortable shoe with the use of recycled and natural materials.
Model NM" comes in 7 colors and fits both men and women. Designed clean and functional to be used and loved for a long time. Aligned with our goal - we remove 1 pound of ocean plastic for every pair made.
The footwear industry often overlooks natural and recycled materials for cheaper synthetic options. We do not think this way is neither responsible or sustainable so we set out to make better shoes in a different way.
There is more microplastic in the ocean than there are stars in the Milky Way and If nothing is done, there will be more plastic than fish in the oceans by 2050.
In New Movements, we are aware of this massive problem that our planet is suffering. That is the reason why we collaborate with the plastic waste movement Empower. For every pair of shoes you pre-order, we clean 1 pound of ocean plastic around the world. Together we help local communities, providing jobs and save the environment.

Currently, 90% of the sneakers made today are produced in Asia, often under poor working conditions and with a fast fashion approach. In our case, we decided to go for a fully European production to ensure good working practices, fair wages, and ethical working conditions.
To give the highest quality, the shoes are handmade in Portugal, Porto. Made with raw and recycled materials sourced from eco-suppliers, without harmful chemicals. We want to push the limits by offering high-end sneakers and contribute positively to the environment.

Risks and challenges
Everyone of you that have worked on a project or with business projects know that they take a lot of hard work, time and capital. That's why we have decided to go for crowdfunding campaign through Kickstarter. If we manage to reach the goal we have set, we will produce the first bulk of shoes and keep on working on our impactful mission.
We are a startup with few resources and, if there were, we will not pay any amount on duties or taxes. Tax will be added under shipping on orders to Norway.
We understand and acknowledge that no project comes without risk and challenges. Despite our planning, there are circumstances that may be out of our control. If we encounter any of these, we promise to communicate with full transparency.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
