We chose recycled rubber as the base material for our innovative outsoles with the dual purpose of flexibility and durability in mind. This second-life material avoids the need for further rubber farming, which often involves environmentally damaging forest clearance.
Our choice of canvas straps made with cotton strands from recycled textiles reduces the need for excessive cotton farming, which can be water-inefficient.
