ROMBAUT is a vegan accessory brand with sustainability at its core. Our limited editions connect with a new conscious generation around the world. By proposing strong aesthetics and humanistic values, ROMBAUT aims to provide a way forward for a world in need of progress. Color, form and detailing are singular and bold. Using luxurious plant-based materials, recycled fibers and high grade artificial leather, ROMBAUT creates unique sneaker styles with a story. Often experimenting with cultural stereotypes and cross-pollination of archetypal footwear classics we create a new aesthetic of purity, optimism and gloom, which feels very relevant today.

ROMBAUT is pleased to announce the opening of its first store in the Haut Marais neighborhood of Paris’ 3rd Arrondissement. Situated at 6 Rue de la Corderie, the boutique is surrounded by galleries, art and book shops, fashion stores and eclectic restaurants.
