Can you tell that these kicks are made from pineapples?

Paris-based fashion brand Rombaut has created a line of unisex sneakers made from Piñatex, a non-woven textile that feels like leather and is produced from the fibers of pineapple leaves. It's very flexible but strong, making it a great alternative to animal leather.

Other plant-based materials used in the production of these shoes include fig tree bark, wild Amazonian rubber, coconut fiber, tapa bark and potato starch. If you're interested in owning a piece of vegan fashion, check out Rombaut's web shop.
