Having long been a supporter of sustainability and conscious consumption, Max Herre's choice to collaborate with ekn footwear is an organic and logical progression. Involved in the design process from start to finish, the resulting "Max Herre Signature Shoe" exudes classic simplicity, and proves that style and sustainability compliment each other perfectly. Available in three colours, the shoes will be available at Sotostore (Berlin) from March 30th.
