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.
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% 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.
Recycled polyester is made from post-consumer waste. This is generally comprised of recycled plastic bottles and polyester fabrics.
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. 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. Econyl® is regenerated nylon made from waste, post-consumer and post-production waste such as fishing nets, fabric scraps and carpets. Nylon is a strong and versatile fiber that can be indefinitely recycled, if recycled responsibly, and not discarded as landfill. Seaqual® yarn is a high-quality polyester fiber made from 100% post-consumer waste, partially collected from the sea.
Our natural rubber (75%) is biodegradable and as it is grown responsibly, increases biodiversity and absorbs carbon. We mix this with 25% recycled rubber to make the outsole abrasion-resistant and also to utilize pre-exsisting rubber and save it from landfill.
