The Rv3 From Roscomar is a first of its kind sneaker engineered from 100% vegan materials.
We believe in minimizing use of non-renewable petroleum-based materials in our sneakers. So our Rv3 sneakers are made from TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers instead of “vegan leather” which is usually petroleum based. 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 in every aspect of our shoes.
Pulltab & Composition Label
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.
90% Natural & recycled rubber
Our natural rubber (60%) is biodegradeable 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.
51% RECYCLED POLYESTER + 70% RECYCLED COTTON BACKINGS
Utilizing the highest possible proportion of recycled source materials while maintaining durability, the panels on Rv3 support the structure of the shoe and are easily cleaned.
100% Recycled Polyester
Recycled polyester is made from post-consumer waste. This is generally comprised of recycled plastic bottles and polyester fabrics.
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 more sustainable they are.
INSOLES & SOLES
Brush and rinse off the sole with warm water, hand soap and a soft brush, make sure it is clean of all removable dirt. You can give the Insole this treatment as well.
Remove laces and insoles.
Wash the upper with soap and a clean soft brush, gently by hand. Or put one sneaker at a time into the machine on soft cycle 30* degrees Celsius. Don’t use washing detergent. Washing detergents contain enzymes that are not always suitable for footwear. You can add some hand soap or special washing detergent for wool or delicates if you'd like to scent them. It's integral not to wash the shoes in the pair together, as they might smash into each other and disform the uppers of one another.
Clean your laces seperately to the rest of your sneaker, with a small amount of detergentand warm water in the sink. If you can't get them clean enough we offer replacement laces here.
