Modern Footwear. Alternative Materials.
Designed for the World. Made for everyone.
Sophisticated and sustainable, our shoes leverage a number of natural materials with the bulk of the shoe constructed using MDRN Canvas™. It uses 75% less water than traditional canvas sneakers.
MDRN Canvas is a unique construction of hemp that gives us the look and feel of traditional canvas.
We worked with Ortholite to develop a pair of sustainable insoles for our shoes. The end product is a molded pair of insoles that is formed out of recycled foam, rubber and castor bean oil. These insoles allow us to remain eco-friendly while still delivering high performance and comfort.
We wanted to avoid using leather, so we chose cork for the sneaker accent. Besides providing a unique look, cork is a sustainable alternative to leather.
NATURAL RUBBER OUTSOLE
All our shoes use an outsole fabricated out of natural rubber. This allows us to cut down on the amount of waste and pollution generated by using synthetic rubber.
