Organic Cotton

The organic cotton used throughout our sneakers is grown with the intention of minimising the impact of its creation on both farmer and environment. Organic cotton is cultivated without insecticides, pesticides, synthetic fertilisers, or GMO seeds.

Natural Latex Rubber

All our outsoles and foxing sidewalls are made from natural latex rubber from the hevea brasiliensis tree, vulcanised in a pressurised kiln at 120º to fuse the sole to the upper.

Flexible yet durable, natural rubber is a naturally sustainable product that's ultimately biodegradable at the end of its life.


Natural cork is the bark taken from the quercus suber, more commonly named the cork oak. Sustainably harvested with no damage to the tree it grows upon, natural cork is inherently anti-microbial (hypoallergenic & resistant to bacteria) and hydrophobic (repels water) making it the perfect material to stand between your feet and the ground.

Ortholite® Eco

Our insole foam is made from an environmentally friendly formulation containing both a renewable sourced castor bean oil in place of the traditional petroleum derived foam, and incorporates a percentage of recycled rubber.

Recycled Packaging

Our shoe boxes and courier bags are made from 100% post consumer paper waste and printed from plant based inks.

Love these

I've bought from Collective Canvas before. Their amazing sneakers wear incredibly well. They're comfortable immediately and never smell. The natural fabrics make your feet happy.

No regrets!

On my feet all day at work. I needed new shoes to make my day more bearable and for cycling to work. Tick and tick. Thinking of getting more in other colour ways. Stoked!


I had been looking for shoes like these—shoes made of environmentally-friendly materials. These shoes exceeded expectations: the cork inner sole is very comfy, and meant the shoes did not need to ‘break in’. They look sharp too, and I look forward to taking Collective Canvas up on its end-of-life reclaim process (but that won’t need to be done any time soon!)
