We listened to your feedback and improved our product. We developed a thicker 3D-knit and added support to improve the fit.
We reviewed and improved our production process to streamline it. The result: less production waste and manufacturers that are closer to each other to maintain our low carbon footprint and improve the quality of our products.
While we've made a lot of improvement on the product, Norm's 1L11-02 is still the most sustainable sneakers on the planet. 90% recycled materials and every single component sourced and produced in Europe.
In a world where fast fashion is still a popular behaviour we step ahead and we slow down.
You'll have to wait a little longer (4-5 weeks) but the best way to reduce overproduction is to produce only what you need.
Pushing the limits of design and sustainability Norm created a new version of its iconic unisex sneakers in an exclusive and limited full black color.
Pre-orders will start on November 3rd 6:00pm CEST.
The 1L11-02 Black Hole will be available from EU size 36 to 46.
