SCROLL DOWN FOR MORE INFO

We stand strong in our holy trinity of beliefs: for the planet, the animals & the people. Equally.

We like to think of the Earth as our home, and treat her just like that. We use as few new materials as possible and created a system which is based on repurposing the waste of others.

OUR IMPACT

(ALMOST) NOT A VIRGIN

RECYCLED RUBBER

All our soles are made from recycled rubber. We mainly use recycled canvas for our uppers, lining and insoles. Recycled PET bottles and fishnets were also introduced in the last collection

upcycled materials

We work with several warehouses in Europe where we source surplus military supplies and upcycle them into new uppers. We are currently working on expanding our list of upcycled materials.

SHIPPING BOX

Our shoes are packaged in a recycled+biodegradable cardboard box that also serves as a shipping box. Your shoe box is also ensured with 100% plastic free tape.

CLOSED LOOP

We designed a closed loop system that extends the life of our soles: just send your old pair back to us when you’re done using them and we will take care of their next life.

PLANT DYE

All of our dyes are environtmental-friendly and vegan and some of them are, literally, food waste or flowers.
