BIZÙ

About

Long lasting baby shoes that grow along with their feet

Bizù are expandable baby slippers that can accommodate different sizes and grow along with the baby’s feet. They are made from recycled jeans yarn and are locally produced making them environmentally sustainable as well as economical. They follow the growth of the feet, made possible by the fact that they are manufactured from knitting the jeans yarn, which creates an elastic and flexible fabric. Bizù can be used for a period of 12 months which is four time longer than other regular shoes and slippers.
