A fresh take on this classic sneaker silhouette with a focus on using natural sustainable materials. The uppers are formed from stitched panels made with Spanish vegan leather and a specially made Tencel™ weave knit, cut low so they sit below the ankles. Tencel™ is derived from sustainably grown wood sources (FSC®), harvested from certified and controlled sources. Certified as compostable and biodegradable under industrial, home, soil and marine conditions, it can fully revert back to nature. It’s compliant with Din Certco, Vincotte and US BPI compostability standards. The use of Tencel™and the perforations on the toes allows these sneakers to stay cool and breathable through the summer. The linings are formed from a two tone grey Tencel™ and organic cotton mix. It’s really soft to the touch, and allows socks or no socks. The linings help air circulate and they wick moisture keeping your feet dry and hygienic. They’re fully washable by hand or put them in a short cool wash with a towel (to protect from the wash drum). We put in biodegradable compressed cardboard toe puffs, counters and insole boards (FSC®),Tencel™ sewing threads and padding. Your feet rest on biodegradable insoles made from wood fibers and natural latex. Even the lace tips are made from a biodegradable bioplastic. The high profile outsoles (1.5cm drop differential: 3.5cm on the heel and 2cm on the front) made in Portugal from rubber containing 70% recycled rubber content provide great cushioning and traction. Finished with our signature WVS embroidered pull tag made from recycled polyester. SUSTAINABLE / ETHICAL / VEGAN FASHION
