The Nebula is an exclusive and highly unusual Wildling model.
It’s an airy hybrid that combines an anatomically shaped knitted body with the classic Wildling design.
It took more than 3 years to perfect the knitting pattern and create the ultimate minimal shoe. With an upper material that firmly hugs the foot yet yields where necessary, this low cut can fulfil its function, embracing the foot like a second skin.
The Nebula is made of just three pieces and only a few simple stitches to give it its unique fit. It weighs in at a featherweight 4.55 ounces at size W 8 | M 7.
The material used offers excellent breathability, and, together with the gap in the Wildling outsole, allows air to circulate around the foot. This area is also reinforced with Dyneema thread, which has a strength-to-weight ratio that is 15 times stronger than steel’s.
The way the material is knitted ensures that only the inside - made of iVN-certified, mulesing-free, climate-regulating merino wool - touches the foot. The outer side is made of abrasion-resistant polyester.
So the Nebula is the perfect shoe for indoor activities, as well as a unique companion on outdoor adventures.
For additional comfort, the Nebula includes a removable insole that makes airing and drying easier, plus microfibre padding at the heel, for a more secure fit.
For a splash of color you can switch the flat Tencel laces for other laces, available separately.
This low cut is water-permeable. When airing and drying, we recommend removing the insole.
Optically Nebula appears a little smaller due to the elastic material, for the size selection we recommend to orientate at the fit information.
