Black + White Low-cut Sneaker
These black + white low-cut sneakers by Etiko may be familiar in style, but they are completely different in construction and ethics:
- The soles are natural, sustainable latex made from FSC-certified rubber.
- The cotton used for the canvas and laces is certified organic and fair trade, and is PCP and AZO-free.
The sneakers are also 100% vegan, that means no animal glues or sneaky leather inserts.
Finally, a sneaker you can feel good about and good in!
fair trade, organic & vegan
Etiko soles are all natural, made from sustainable latex and certified by the FSC, which means the rubber was actually tapped from a tree in a well-managed and growing forest, instead of being made from petrochemicals like most other 'rubber' products.
The canvas and laces are made of cotton that has been certified both organic (GOTS) and fairtrade (FLO).
The dyes used on the canvas are PCP and AZO free.
No animal products or by-products are used, making these 100% vegan.
The shoe boxes your sneakers will be shipped in are made from post-consumer waste.
So there you have it - a sneaker that is more than just a sneaker!
BTW, although they are made with certified fairtrade cotton, in an accredited fairtrade factory, and Etiko pays a social premium to both the rubber producers in Sri Lanka and the shoe stitchers in Pakistan, these sneakers are not certified fairtrade. The reason for this is that, at this stage, there is no fairtrade standard for footwear.
Etikos run true to size.
