Cow Leather, Sheep Leather, Cotton, Recycled Cork/Rubber Sole

Leather is a natural, renewable material made from animal hides that have been preserved and softened through a tanning process. We select our leathers based on their individual properties and the intended application.

This product is made from leather sourced from a Leather Working Group (LWG) audited and rated tannery. LWG aims to improve the environmental impact of the leather industry by assessing and certifying leather manufacturers. The audit protocol covers energy use, waste, water use and chemicals, as well as traceability.

Chromium VI is not used in any tanning processes for our leathers.

The sole for this sneaker is made using a mix of rubber and recycled industrial cork. The addition of recycled cork creates a lighter and more flexible material and reduces environmental impact by diverting waste from landfill and repurposing it into new products
