The Court from Roscomar is made exclusively from LWG Certified leather and suede. This highest quality leather ensures our Courts are a luxurious, durable and long lasting sneaker.
We use Leather Working Group Gold certified leather & suede because we believe in minimizing use of non-renewable petroleum-based materials in our sneakers and maximizing renewables.
Roscomar aims to move material science forward to create higher levels and standards of environmentally sound products. We use the highest amounts of sustainable materials currently possible for us in every aspect of our shoes.
90% Natural & recycled rubber
Our natural rubber (60%) is biodegradable and as it is grown responsibly, increases biodiversity and absorbs carbon. We mix this with 30% recycled rubber to make the outsole abrasion-resistant and also to utilize pre-exsisting rubber and save it from landfill.
100% Recyclable PU
100% recyclable polyurethane gives a bouncy cushioning feel with molded arch support. We recycle 100% of our insoles. The most common uses of recycled polyurethane are furniture, mattresses and cars. Our insoles are removable if you'd like to swap them for your own.
Sugarcane is a grass (a renewable biological fiber). Sugarcane reproduces naturally in cycles of less than a year, making it inherently a sustainable fiber. The sugarcane that Roscomar uses comes from Brazil. Our Sugarcane is watered by rainfall which thereby limits manual irrigation and uses minimal fertilization. The sugarcane is harvested and processed into granules that can be used like other petroleum based EVA materials.
100% OEKO TEX & GRS CERTIFIED POLYESTER
OEKO TEX certification means that these materials are free from harmful chemicals and are audited according to OEKO TEX standards.
GRS (Global Recycled Standard) means that these materials are made from 100% recycled sources.
100% Organic Cotton
We use GOTS certified organic cotton, which limits the use of toxic bleaches, dyes and other chemical inputs during the production process. In order to qualify for this certification, all of our cotton components must contain at least 95% organic cotton fibers.
UPPERS & LININGS
100% LEATHER WORKING GROUP GOLD CERTIFIED LEATHER OR SUEDE
Leather offers many natural properties perfect for sneakers - it is naturally breathable, shapes and stretches to your feet, highly durable, resistant to dirt and can be treated to be weatherproof. Gold certification from LWG means our supplier has been audited across a number of factors including tannery processes, renewable energy levels and water usage and waste.
The most sustainable option is always not to buy anything new at all. So we ask that you try and extend the life of your Roscomars for as long as possible. The longer you have and wear your sneakers, the smaller their carbon footprint.
Remove your laces before cleaning. Start by using a Suede brush or old toothbrush to gently brush off dry dirt. Use a damp cloth and or your brush to remove any further dirt or marks. If your sneakers are left quite wet then stuff them with plain paper (not printed paper!) so they keep their shape. Allow your sneakers to fully dry before giving them a final soft brush and wearing.
Remove your laces before cleaning. Start by using a soft brush or old toothbrush to brush off dry dirt. Use a damp cloth and or your brush to remove any further dirt or marks. If you'd like to brighten the colour of your sneakers you can use a shoe polish to do so, just make sure you don't get any on the soles, laces or inners as it may mark. Apply a polish with a soft cloth and follow instructions.
Clean your laces seperately to the rest of your sneaker, with a small amount of detergent and cold water in the sink. If you can't get them clean enough we offer replacement laces here.
