In 2018 12 Milion pairs of shoes were produced from non-reusable or non-biodegradable virgin plastic. Currently 90% of the sneakers are made of plastic, a petroleum-based material. With all that plastic waste in the ecosystem, it is not enough to just stop producing it.
It must be reintroduced into the industrial chain.

THE NOT JUST
VEGAN SNEAKER

an exercise of Innovation, and after
1 year and a half of Research and Development, we have managed to make this upcycled sneaker, made with 100% recycled and recyclable fibers from recovered plastics. Inspired by the Modelo'89 collection, this is our commitment to the vegan path. While we keep up with our main values which include becoming a zero-waste brand, fighting for fair production working conditions, and keep funding the growth of thousand trees in the most needed areas of the Planet.

UPCYCLING

Upcycling consists of recycling materials or products that have fallen out of use in order to turn them into higher quality or more useful products. Plastic bottles, cotton recycled from textile industry cuttings, recycled polyester: our recycled materials give household waste a second life, and allow us to create a range of fabrics according to season and use.

UPPER

Our Napa leather contains 39% of RPET fibers certified with the GRS at both origin and in the manufacturing stage of the item by our Spanish suppliers. Item Category: PET RECOVER Fibers. From post consumer fibers (discarded garments) and different recycled and reintroduced PET articles. These fibers are 100% RECYCLED AND RECYCLABLE. On the outside, the Napa article is made up of 61% of the article of a PU base. It is a high quality PU (HIGH SOLID) from our Italian supplier. This PU is also free of DMF’s (dimethyl formaldehyde), a substance that if absorbed by the skin can occur in liver damage for long exposed workers.

UPPER

Napa Versus contains 39% of RPET fibers certified with the GRS at origin by the supplier Industrias Ferré and in the manufacturing stage of the item by Poveda Textil. Item Category: PET RECOVER Fibers. From post consumer fibers (discarded garments) and different recycled and reintroduced PET articles. These fibers are 100% RECYCLED AND RECYCLABLE. On the outside, the Napa article is made up of 61% of the article of a PU base. It is a high quality PU (HIGH SOLID) from the Italian supplier IRS. This PU is also free of DMF’s (dimethyl formaldehyde), a substance that if absorbed by the skin can occur in liver damage for long exposed workers.

LINING

The Ultrasuede is made up of 50% RPET Post consumer PET goods with traceability GRS from start to finish. It is a 100% recycled and recyclable material. Examples are plastic bottles and other recycling items that are thrown into the yellow container; they come mainly from a recycling PET plant in Alicante (Spain). The remaining 50% of the item is a VIRGIN PES to ensure mechanical properties of the item. This item is VEGAN certified by INESCOP.

SOLE

The outsole made of 30% natural Rubber and 70% synthetic rubber (SBR) as this mix allows maximum performance and comfort.
Using only natural rubber would mean production problems as it is a material too flexible to work with.
Apart from that, 100% natural rubber outsoles are
more slippery and they get worn out more easily too.
We are in our way to introducing high recycled rubber.

INSOLE

Insole is made of 60% with 95% Recycled PU and 40% PU + 100% Organic Cotton Canvas (LINING GOTS + GRS CERTIFIED).
Strobel part made of 100% recycled fibers.

STROBEL
& LACES

Insole is made of 60% with 95% Recycled PU and 40% PU + 100% Organic Cotton Canvas (LINING GOTS + GRS CERTIFIED).
Strobel part made of 100% recycled fibers.

Laces are made of organic cotton (100%) (GOTS).
Puffs with woodchips.

RECOVERED LEFTOVERS

The counter and the puff of the sneakers are invisible stiff piece reinforcements positioned between the lining and the upper, that help maintain the shape of the shoe. The counter helps strengthen the rear of the shoe and the puff helps the toe cap.

We recover thermoplastic leftover plates and we transform them into new puffs and counters, adding also up to 35% of wood chips recovered from the carpentry industry.

PACKAGING

We use 100% recycled boxes and paper manufactured in Portugal 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 / PEFC logo, you can be sure it’s been made from responsible sources. In this way, both certifications help forests remain thriving environments for generations to come, by helping you make ethical and responsible choices.
