THIS SHOE IS MADE FROM:

THIS SHOE IS MADE FROM:

PLA - Sugarcane Derived[38.64%]

PLA - Sugarcane Derived

We replace the industry-standard polyester with PLA in different applications - predominantly, in a knitted upper construction as well as a soft, spingy midsole to ensure a breathable and lightweight feel.

EVA[12.98%]

EVA

EVA is a material we want to find an alternative for. It currently provides cushioning and shock absorption in the LEGACY’s midsole. 

Natural Rubber[12.03%]

Natural Rubber

Renewable & bio-based. We remove synthetic rubber and use this naturally-produced alternative, predominantly derived from the native Brazilian plant Hevea brasiliensis. Increases tear resistance. 

Binders[8.24%]

Binders

Used in the bio-based overlays and outsole to create consistency of performance and maintain the shoe’s structural integrity. 

Recycled Polyester[4.97%]

Recycled Polyester

Our usage of recycled polyester is something we want to reduce. However, its performance credentials are required for strength and durability while reducing our reliance on virgin polyester. 

PU Foam[4.80%]

PU Foam

Built on biomechanics research this material is light, spongy, supportive and breathable. Used in our insole.  We are working to decrease our usage of this non-renewable material. 

Biodegradable Polyester[3.39%]

Biodegradable Polyester

Mixed with corn-derived PLA for lateral and medial reinforcement - a planet-friendly alternative to standard polyester. Used in our internal reinforcement.

Lyocell[3.32%]

Lyocell

Part of HyphaLite™, Lyocell makes up the substrate of our bio-based overlays. 100% natural, bio-based, plant–based, biodegradable and regenerative. The regenerative cellulosic fibres are certified according to TUEV Austria OK Scheme for biodegradability in soil, water and marine environments.

PLA - Corn-Derived[2.79%]

PLA - Corn-Derived

In our application, this is the alternative to the industry-standard EVA or polyester, used in our internal reinforcement. Helps reduce our reliance on standard EVA and other plastics used for reinforcements.

Organic Cotton[2.49%]

Organic Cotton

GOTS Certified Organic Cotton emits 94% less greenhouse gases in production compared to conventional cotton.

Cotton[2.29%]

Cotton

Used as the substrate in our internal reinforcement, where polyester or nylon would typically be used. Durable. Strong. We are working towards making this organic.

Water-based glue[1.40%]

Water-based glue

Our alternative to solvent-based adhesives that are commonly used in the footwear industry.

Tencel[1.29%]

Tencel

We have adjusted the application of Tencel to a twill to ensure a greater degree of slip resistance. 100% biobased. Made using a closed-loop production process.

Susterra®[0.53%]

Susterra®

Renewable and plant-based. Susterra® is a renewably sourced foam that generates up to 48% less greenhouse gas emissions compared to common fossil-fuel based alternatives. Provides improved flexibility and tear strength, and is soft yet resilient. Used in our insole.

Bio-based TPU[0.30%]

Bio-based TPU

Our use of bio-based TPU increases the durability and dirt-resistance of the LEGACY’s upper while reducing our reliance on fossil fuels.

Polyester[0.29%]

Polyester

A material we’re seeking to reduce to nil in our products. Used in the stitching thread.

TPU[0.23%]

TPU

Increases the durability and dirt-resistance. We are in the process of phasing out the use of this material.

NFC[0.01%]

NFC

A digital ID to enable care, repair and recycling.

Water-based ink[0.01%]

Water-based ink

Inks and glues are critical in our vegan certification. Less impact than solvent based inks commonly used that utilise more harmful chemicals.
