The world’s only plastic-free, vegan black trainer, created in partnership with nature.
Reimagine what is possible in footwear with an ethically-made, plastic-free and animal-friendly construction. Our 1981 black vegan trainer is a plant-based, sustainable first step towards a world of all-natural footwear.
Uncompromising on style and comfort, our eco-friendly trainer merges classic lines with minimal ecological impact. A black organic canvas upper with black laces and white natural rubber soles make these 1981 vegan trainers an everyday essential to complete any look.
Every pair of these black sustainable trainers is lovingly handmade in Portugal from organic cotton with natural gum soles, hemp stitching and vegan conifer glue.
Our plastic-free rubber soles take a week to pour, bake and cure, resulting in a supple yet hard-wearing microstructure, containing thousands of tiny air bubbles. Combined with our unique Infinite Cloud insoles, this pair of black vegan sneakers provide unrivalled comfort.
So go ahead, challenge every established norm and be plastic-free and vegan from the ground up with a pair of WAES game-changing black canvas trainers.
