RECYCLED VEGAN NAPA 

This innovative fabric and new leather substitute is called Corn Vegan Napa, is PETA approved and derived from renewable resources, with a high biomass content, composed of 29% corn waste and 71% bio-based polyurethane, it’s also biodegradable.

On top of the innovative Corn Vegan Napa, the new M89 Vegan sneaker also uses 100% bamboo lining, which is a fast-growing, self-generative and super sustainable option. This sneaker really ticks all the innovation and sustainability boxes.

LINING

RECYCLED PET OR BAMBOO

RECYCLED POST-CONSUMER PET

We use 50% recycled post-consumer polyethylene terephthalate PET (RPET) with GRS traceability and 50% PES to ensure the best performance in our lining.

Our lining starts its life in a recycling PET plant where they treat post-consumer plastic bottles and other PET articles that are thrown away into the recycling container. Once these materials are treated and transformed into cones of recycled fibers, our Spanish supplier converts them into a comfortable and brand-new lining.

BAMBOO LINING

For our Modelo 89 Vegan Colores we use 100% bamboo lining.

OUTSOLE

M'89 Vegan HI

NATURAL AND SYNTHETIC RUBBER

Our outsole is made in Portugal. It is composed of 30% natural rubber and 70% synthetic rubber.

Both natural and synthetic rubber have been tested to have high tear resistance, elasticity at low temperatures, and high tensile strength. This mix allows maximum performance and comfort. 

INSOLE

RECYCLED PU FOAM

We recover polyurethane PU leftovers from European automotive factories that otherwise would become waste, and we transform them into brand new insoles made of 60% recycled PU and 40% virgin PU.

Our insole is designed and developed in perfect harmony with the environment, without compromising excellent physical and mechanical properties. Its key component is carbon, a plant-based substance with absorbing properties and also breathability and desorption properties, easing the elimination of moisture, thermal sensation and unwanted odors.

ORGANIC COTTON

We use certified organic cotton for the laces. This material fulfills the requirements on the highest quality organic fibers promoted by certificates on respectful ecological and social standards.

Organic cotton is beneficial for our environment and our health because it is grown in fertile land fields free of harmful pesticides, herbicides and synthetic chemical fertilizers. In addition, it is spun and produced without using toxic chemicals. Organic agriculture respects the cycles of soil, trying to maintain a balance which will preserve the land for future uses.

By using a certified organic product on our sneakers, we are getting both socially and environmentally committed, we are betting on a slightly cleaner and safer world, and we are helping the planet and future generations. 

REINFORCE-
MENTS

LEFTOVERS

The counter and the puff of the sneakers are invisible stiff reinforcement pieces located between the lining and the upper that help maintain the shape of the shoe. The counter helps strengthen the rear of the shoe and the puff helps the toe cap.

We recycle thermoplastic leftover plates and transform them into new puffs and counters, adding to this mixture up to 35% of wood chips we recover from the carpentry industry.

RECYCLED PACKAGING

We use 100% recycled boxes and paper manufactured in Portugal in compliance with the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) certifications.

When timber leaves an FSC or PEFC certified forest, we ensure companies along the supply chain meet our best practice standards. So when a product bears the FSC or PEFC logo, you can be sure it comes from responsible and sustainable sources. In this way, both certifications help forests remain thriving environments for generations to come, at the same time that help yourself make ethical and responsible choices when buying any product.
