Mongolian luxury cashmere brand GOBI has launched a new unisex trainer collection, its first foray into footwear – adding to its clothing, accessories and homeware.

The new trainers, which come in both high-top and low-cut styles, highlight the brand’s "agile vision for cashmere", with footwear that is thin yet durable, breathable and lightweight.

While the trainers feature a 100% cashmere outer in grey, navy or sand options, the soles combine 20% sugarcane with Green EVA - a soft and light rubber-like material, offering the shoe wearer greater flexibility and elasticity. Made from a composition of eco-polyurethane, the material comprises of 15% algae sourced from lakes.

Managing Director at GOBI Cashmere, Amarsaikhan Baatarsaikhan, said: "We brought together the comfort and versatility of trainers with the luxurious touch of cashmere for all to enjoy.

"With meticulous craftsmanship and commitment to quality, we are proud to present GOBI Cashmere trainers that are as stylish as they are comfortable."

GOBI Cashmere, which was founded in 1981, uses the finest Mongolian cashmere, sourcing the luxurious material from its nomadic partners who use ancient traditions to comb cashmere fibres carefully and safely from goats across four regions of Mongolia.

Available on GOBI Cashmere’s website, the high-tops are retailing for £229, while the low-cut trainers are £199.
