Incredibly strong, easy to grow and inherently organic, hemp is by a wide margin the most truly sustainable material we work with. Hemp cultivation requires no pesticides or insecticides, and only a quarter the water required of cotton. Even better, it detoxifies and regenerates the soil it’s grown in, as well as removing CO2 from the atmosphere at an impressive rate.

As a fabric hemp has similar properties to merino, being antimicrobial (low odour retention, which means it stays fresher for longer), and both insulating and breathable. It also softens with age, and is one of the most durable natural fibres on earth.

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.

Fantastic sneakers

These are slightly roomier than my Bals even though they are both size 36 but are fine worn with socks. I love the soft, comfy insoles and the colour is great. Overall, I’m very happy with my sneakers.
