There is an incredible mix of innovation when it comes to the M95, including using certified suede, recycled upper mesh, recycled lining, recycled insole, and organic cotton laces, however it’s the outsole that’s really turning heads.
The SAYE team has designed and manufactured the outsole from start to finish, using an extremely high percentage of recycled rubber compared to other outsoles on the market.
Our M95 SNEAKERS are made of recycled materials as much as possible, actually every single part of our sneaker is made up of recycled materials, except for suede leather of course. This has a huge impact on the environment, by focusing on profiting what we have at our fingertips, waste is reduced significantly and overproduction is avoided altogether.
Strict processes including traceability, accountability and responsibility are always top priorities but especially when working with organic, recycled and certified materials. Meaning that every single material we use has been created and tested, having you as the wearer, the artisans involved in the manufacturing process and of course the environment in mind.
The suede leather of our sneakers from our Spanish supplier, who gets it mainly from Russian cows. Our leather is environmentally certified, which means that environmental standards and stewardship procedures are granted during all the working process, from primary manufacturer to final product.
Our mesh offers excellent resistance and breathability, ideal for everyday wear. It's made of 69% recycled polyester. It is a Global Recycled Standard (GRS) product manufactured in Spain.
GRS is an international standard system that sets requirements for third-party certification that involves recycled content, chain of custody, social and environmental practices, and chemical restrictions. The aims of GRS are to define requirements, ensure accurate content claims and good working conditions, and minimize environmental and chemical impact.
We use vegan suede leather made of 51% recycled polyester with GRS traceability. A sleek, soft material that offers premium foot comfort.
The SAYE team has designed and manufactured the outsole from start to finish using 70% recycled rubber—an extremely high percentage of recycled material compared to other outsoles on the market.
Rubber is a highly versatile material that exhibits a flexible area, that is why it is widely used in the footwear industry to produce outsoles.
RECYCLED PU FOAM
Our insole is composed of three layers of technical materials. The first layer is a base of 100% recycled rebound polyurethane flexible foam, the second layer is made of 100% recycled PU and the third one of 100% PU memory foam medallions. These foam medallions maximize underfoot comfort while offering excellent cushioning.
The lining of the insole is made from 50% recycled polyester that absorbs moisture from your feet and evaporates it instantly.
We use certified organic cotton for the laces. This material fulfills the requirements on the highest quality organic fibers promoted by certificates on respectful ecological and social standards.
Organic cotton is beneficial for our environment and our health because it is grown in fertile land fields free of harmful pesticides, herbicides and synthetic chemical fertilizers. In addition, it is spun and produced without using toxic chemicals. Organic agriculture respects the cycles of soil, trying to maintain a balance which will preserve the land for future uses.
By using a certified organic product on our sneakers, we are getting both socially and environmentally committed, we are betting on a slightly cleaner and safer world, and we are helping the planet and future generations.
BOX & PAPER
We use 100% recycled boxes and paper manufactured in Portugal in compliance with the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) certifications.
When timber leaves an FSC or PEFC certified forest, we ensure companies along the supply chain meet our best practice standards. So when a product bears the FSC or PEFC logo, you can be sure it comes from responsible and sustainable sources. In this way, both certifications help forests remain thriving environments for generations to come, at the same time that help yourself make ethical and responsible choices when buying any product.
PLASTIC FREE & FULLY BIODEGRADABLE
Packaging is the leading contributor to pollution, especially in marine environments. Petroleum-based plastics only exacerbate this pollution problem and have a deep impact on the environment and wildlife.
In an effort to reduce our environmental impact, we've decided to avoid plastic bags. Instead, we use biodegradable mailer bags made from cornstarch. When exposed to light, air, moisture and microbes, our bio-bags break down to natural elements that are found in nature.
Plastic-free packaging, while laborious to produce, is a step towards the right direction to minimize the amount of petroleum-based plastics that end up in landfills and nature.
