All materials that we use in production are vegan and PETA certified.
Our apple leather comes from apple residue from the food industry. The skin is collected, dried, powdered and sent to a factory where it is mixed with Polyurethane (PU), in order to obtain a firm, smooth texture.
We also use corn leather, which originates from the food industry as well. Residue from corn is liquified into a form of wax, 60% of which is then applied to 40% polyester.
We make sure to use as little virgin materials as possible in order to reduce our carbon footprint.
We are working with a warehouse in France where we buy old military supplies and upcycle them into new uppers.
The canvas we use is recycled canvas, made of 70% recycled cotton and 30% viscose.
Our signature sole is made out of 70% recycled rubber and 30% newly produced rubber, to ensure efficient adherence and resistance.
At the end of its life cycle, the sole can be sent back to the factory to be remade into a new shoe.
