Description From SAOLAThis style runs small. Please order one size up from what you typically wear. Our uber-comfortable mids are designed with sustainable materials like recycled plastic, organic cotton, and algae (yes algae!) to decrease your carbon footprint. Whether paired with jeans or a dress, the Atakamas are eco-friendly sneakers that are classy-cool for everyday wear. WHY WE LOVE THEM Algae Foam outsole is surprisingly lightweight, so they’re easy to wear and easy to pack. Rubber panels at high-contact points assure long-lasting durability. Algae Foam + cork insoles provide comfortable cushion (and are removable if you have other insole needs). Uppers deliver the look and feel of suede but are made with recycled PET from plastic bottles. There are 3-4 recycled bottles in every pair. The stitching detail on the heel tho. SAOLAs are 100% vegan shoes. MATERIALS Upper: Synthetic leather (40% recycled PET + 60% PU) Insole: Natural cork + Algae Foam Outsole: Algae Foam Laces: Organic cotton
Your sneakers are an important part of your wardrobe, so you want to find stylish, ultra-comfortable kicks that you’ll be proud to wear for years to come. And SAOLA makes that easy with their affordable vegan sneakers! They use sustainable materials that not only make the planet happy, but also make your tennis shoes even more comfortable and durable. Recycled plastic and organic cotton make your tennies breathable, and natural cork and algae foam give them the right amount of cushion and spring. Their minimalist design makes them stylish, lightweight, and comfortable, even for your longest days and toughest workouts. SAOLAs are ethically manufactured in Vietnam where their workers earn fair wages.
