MEET JOHNNY, NOT THE PERSON...

THE SHOE THAT
GROWS INTO A TREE

Taking care of our planet just makes sense.

That's why Johnny shoes are biodegradable and grow into an apple tree after you're done wearing them. Wear them as long as your typical sneakers, if not longer. When you're done with them, simply plant them in the ground!

Our Story

THEY DON'T BIODEGRADE ON YOUR FEET!

JOHNNY SHOES NEED CONSISTENT EXPOSURE TO AN UNDERGROUND ENVIRONMENT BEFORE THEY BIODEGRADE!

​​​​​​​HOW JOHNNY CAME TO BE



Once we saw how big a problem traditional footwear is, it became apparent that a solution was needed. With a bit of hard work and lot of love, we're very proud to show the world our solution to this huge environmental problem!

THE HIDDEN TRUTH IN SHOES

For a long time shoes were uncomfortable so humans developed soft, cushiony materials. What we didn't realize was that these plastic compounds would stick around in the environment for up to 1,000 years after we throw them away!

WE KNEW WE HAD TO ACT QUICKLY

We knew we had to act quickly since 20 billion pairs of shoes are produced each year. After years research and testing, a revolutionary new compound that retains the comfort of a modern sneaker while also taking care of our planet.

OUR SOLUTION

Johnny uses our revolutionary new compound that biodegrades underground in 3 years rather than the typical 1,000 years of other athletic shoes. Then it hit us, if you're going to plant your shoes anyway, why not have them grow into a tree!?

HOW IT WORKS

Every pair of Johnny shoes is equipped with our revolutionary sole design. It's super comfortable and cushiony but also houses a hidden seed that will eventually grow into an apple tree

  • BIODEGRADABLE MIDSOLE / SEAL
    This soft, cushiony part of the shoe provides support and biodegrades in only 3 short years once planted underground!
  • FERTILIZER CASING
    This casing acts to protect the seed during manufacturing and provide it with a viable food source once it's released into the soil.
  • APPLE SEED
    Each half pair of Johnnies houses a hidden seed by the arch area of the foot. You won't feel it as you wear it, but it will germinate a few years after being planted in the ground.
  • OUTSOLE
    Our natural latex rubber outsole has a grip pattern designed for maximum traction while also biodegrading at the same rate as the rest of your shoe!
