Bamboo Sneakers: The Summer Closet Must-Have

You’ve likely seen sheets, furniture, and household goods like toothbrushes made of bamboo, but you’ll be hard pressed to find a bamboo shoe like the IBI.

Bamboo is a sustainable resource, which is one of the many reasons we chose it for our shoes. When cut from the stalk, it’s capable of regenerating without harm to its roots or the soil. Bamboo grows back easily and quickly, without artificial irrigation, human intervention, or toxic pesticides. Bamboo is also amazing for diminishing atmospheric carbon, as it releases 35% more oxygen into the atmosphere than a tree of the same size.

Our bamboo is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, OEKO-TEX, and the Organic Crop Improvement Association.

Why We Chose Bamboo

Bamboo’s rapid growth cycle and tensile strength gives it all the makings of the perfect sustainable sneaker material. We developed our unique bamboo knit after 1 year of research, by working closely with our suppliers and partners to create a high performance, eco-friendly and ultra lightweight material. Our perfect-fit bamboo upper is made with KNIT technology, designed to flex beautifully and retain its shape. (It’s like an all-day hug for your feet.)

About Our Bamboo Sneaker

Breathable

Bamboo fibers are uniquely heat-regulating and
moisture-wicking—perfect as temperatures climb.
Temperature Regulating

The lightweight and breathable nature of bamboo fibers makes IBI bamboo shoes ideal for summer, but they can also be worn in chillier climates if you so choose. These fibers are naturally temperature regulating, conserving heat when it is cold outside and releasing heat when the weather is warm.
Antibacterial

Bamboo is antibacterial in the context of its growth. Now consider this fact as it relates to a shoe material. Sneakers can trap a lot of sweat when you are out and about, and having a material that is naturally antibacterial prevents bacteria from growing.

Our IBI bamboo shoes are high quality sneakers with a low environmental impact, across all three silhouettes: IBI, IBI High and IBI Slip-On. The IBI family charts a new course for sneaker design. Proof positive: the new IBI Slip-On is made with three times less carbon than the industry average sneaker, at just 5.48kg CO₂e*.

IBI’s bamboo knit adds an elevated detail without compromising the versatility of the shoe. Whether you prefer the new IBI Slip-On style, for easy errand-running and last-minute adventures, or the IBI Low, a sleek, everyday lace up style, we love these eco-friendly sneakers for walking, biking, or just relaxing on the weekends. These two are even washable. The IBI High is another great option to add a little edge (and water-repellent power) to your look.

You really can’t go wrong with the bamboo IBI.

*ISO 14067 Certified - The IBI Slip-On has a carbon emission of 5.48kg CO₂e based on the LCA study conducted by PRé Sustainability B.V. in March 2021.
