Indestructible Hemp Upper
Strength and Sustainability
Hemp is the strongest natural fiber, making it perfect for footwear. It's also an extremely robust plant that can grow in dry climates with minimal water.
Cork Leather Accents
Not Just For Wine Bottles
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 Outsoles
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.
I. Love. These. Sneakers. I was worried that walking long distances in them would hurt my feet (like a Vans or Converse might), but these have a ton of cushion! I've managed to keep them glowing white which is amazing for a place as muddy as Seattle in the wet season. Looking forward to the upcoming colors, Vans OTW are about to lose my business.
Awesome. Love the look of the shoe. Wear it almost every week! Tell Shiv - good job!
Customer service was amazing! Abbas was always quick to respond to any questions I had and was kind. The shoes arrived in a timely manner and were in great condition. I love Modern Alt!
I love my new shoes! They are well made and durable. Perfect way to elevate my look for errands or with a nice sun dress. I love the attention to detail.
I absolutely love my new MDRN Canvas Shoes. I've often found ethical and sustainable shoe brands to be super uncomfortable, not the case for these. They're truly so so comfy, it's like walking on clouds. I can't wait for other colors to come out as I don't know how long I can keep my shoes white! :)
