Our Sustainable Materials

From the soles of our shoes to the trims of our bags, our sustainable collection is expertly crafted with recycled materials that follow best environmental practices.

Introducing Plant-Based Corn

A new leather alternative, this plant-based corn material helps reduce carbon emissions & non-renewable energy sources. It is featured in the uppers of our women's Mirai sneakers and men's Eisingen sneakers.

Ethylene Vinly-Acetate (EVA) With Algae

Ethylene-vinyl-acetate (EVA) foam is an insole material derived from algae biomass. By removing algae build-ups, we help create and filter freshwater & keep CO2 from entering the atmosphere.

Recycled Polyester (PET)

This material is made using post-consumer recycled polyester (PET) derived from plastic bottles, therefore requiring fewer resources than that of new fibers and generating fewer CO2.

Recycled Polyestern yarn (PET)

This material is made using post-consumer recycled polyester (PET) derived from plastic bottles, which saves an equivalent of 2.6 kg of CO2 per kg of material.

Recycled Thermoplastic Rubber

A malleable blend of synthetic rubber and plastic, this material has the ability to be recycled and reused, thereby reducing carbon emissions, water pollution and the use of new raw material.

Waterborne Polyurethane

Waterborne polyurethane is manufactured with a technology that uses less chemical solvents, energy and water. It saves an equivalent of 5.8 kg of CO2 per square metre material.

Recycled Polyurethane

This material is derived from a polyurethane skin coating on a recycled polyester sub layer. The production of this material requires fewer resources than that of new fibers and generates fewer CO2.

Did You Know?

This is not the first time we've used sustainable materials in our collection. Over the past few years, we've used several materials in the construction of our sustainable shoes and accessories, including recycled metal, recycled knit, recycled nylon, recycled neoprene and recycled jersey, all of which are certified according to the Global Recycled Standard (GRS). Among many benefits, the use of such materials required fewer resources than that of new fibers and generated fewer CO2. They also diminished the environmental impact that come with garment waste. Additionally, we developed CleanStep, an exclusive technology that helps clean & filter polluted water using thermoplastic rubber derived from algae biomass.
