DAYTIME. Lakat Sustainable Sneakers are now available in an intense shade of yellow. This sustainable statement accessory immediately adds a punch of color and cheer to any summertime ensemble. Ideal for both city and coast, Lakat Sustainable Sneakers in Daytime is a dose of sunshine in your every step. 

ETHER. A cool stale gray shade for Lakat Sustainable Sneakers proposes that apart from the standard whites or blacks, Ether is an equally versatile and chic summer choice. Inspired by dynamic scenes of a summer in the city, Ether is the ultimate street style staple for the conscious and fashion-forward. 

COSMOS. We talk about the endless summer days, but what of its warm sultry nights? Cosmos captures the magic and myth of Summer evenings–under the stars, by the shore or even, out on the streets. This sustainable sneaker, covered in a rich hue of navy, is called Cosmos because of the endless style possibilities it brings. 

Vibrant, Eco Friendly, Azo Free

Within the sustainable fashion space, introducing new colorways is often a primary challenge. Typically, dyes are made using toxic chemicals, petroleum and coal. LAKAT Sustainables works only with azo-free dyes, which are eco-friendly. When applied on fabrics, they absorb faster, thereby reducing water consumption. Key players in the sustainable movement have opted for azo-free dyes in their production methods in lieu of chemicals. 

The newest colors from Lakat Sustainables along with your favorite styles will be showcased at Katutubo from May 20 to 22, 2022 at the Bench Tower, 30th Street, Taguig.
