Sneakarma is a sustainable shoe leasing service that aims to change the current model of fashion from a linear approach to a circular one.

The fashion industry has a huge role to play in the world becoming more sustainable and I believe the first step to achieving this is to challenge the norms of ownership.

Shoes are an increasingly major contributor to the current environmental crisis, with 24.2 billion pairs of footwear made in 2018 alone (World footwear, 2019).

Sneakarma’s primary aim is to make personally designed shoes from sustainable materials that stay in the Sneakarma system.
