- 70% RECYCLED CORN + 30% RECYCLED PLASTIC BOTTLE LINING -
Footwear re-imagined from the sole up
Our design and innovative materials come together to create some of the most sustainable footwear the planet has ever seen.
We turn waste fibre from the corn industry
into our luxuriously soft but super-durable innovative lining
Waste not, want not.
We don't like using materials that are from a new source, so we've taken waste corn fibres and developed it into our Trash Planet lining. The fibres are the stringy parts attached to the sweetcorn plant, and incidentally a waste 'by-product' of the food industry.
We bond the corn fibres with recycled PET to provide extra durability. The result? This new material has been put through the same tests that all footwear materials go through and it's been proven to be super-strong.
Our materials are Oeko-Tex certified, which means you can be certain that every component has been tested for harmful substances and they are therefore completely harmless and non-toxic.
Global Recycled Standard
All of our recycled materials are certified by the Global Recycled Standard. This certification verifies how much of our material is recycled.
Our other materials
- 100% RECYCLED LACES -
1 Plastic Bottle Becomes 1 Pair of Durable Recycled Laces.
We tested organic cotton laces, but they degraded in quality quickly and cotton requires a significant amount of water to produce.
So we opted for 100% recycled polyester laces - they're super durable, easy to clean and stay looking fresh for even longer.
- KENAF AND TREE FIBRE INSOLES -
Seriously Comfortable... and Biodegradable.
Our removable insoles are made with superior natural materials and they're also orthopedic. We don't compromise on comfort.
- SUPER CHUNKY OUTSOLES -
0% Compromise on Durability.
2 years of testing and development mean that our iconic soles are optimised to last.
We've combined 75% recycled rubber from the fashion industry with 25% high-quality natural rubber to create a superior blend for reinforced strength.
We've also added extra thickness to the most common break points to provide even more support.
