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.
