High-top trainers are a casual style saviour that every man should have on rotation. Their distinctive silhouette offers a nod to their athletic roots, injecting an outfit with a subtle dose of sporty style. Versatile and oh-so-comfy, they're a footwear staple that we can't get enough of. So you can imagine our delight at the news that one of our favourite sneaker brands, the Barcelona-based label SAYE, has just added a new style of high-tops to its offering.
SAYE is renowned for its sustainable approach to sneaker production. The Spanish brand makes use of innovative recycled and vegan materials, only partners with ethical suppliers and factories, and plants two trees for the sale of each pair of sneakers. It follows then, that its new high top style — the M'89 Vegan HI Sneaker — is crafted in line with this eco-conscious approach. As its name suggests, the sneaker is completely vegan. Made from corn, bamboo, organic cotton and natural rubber with reinforcements crafted from recycled thermoplastics and wood chips recovered from the carpentry industry, the M'89 Vegan HI sets a new standard for sustainable sneakers.
As far as looks go, the M'89 Vegan HI Sneaker adheres to SAYE's characteristically retro-inspired aesthetic. A twist on the brand's original Modelo ‘89 style, it boasts a sleek and sporty high-top silhouette with a single broken coloured line contrasting against an off-white upper. Choose from four versatile hues: Green, Garnet, Beige or Black. And when it comes to styling them? Team them with your casual weekend uniform of denim and an overshirt, or use them to dress down a more sophisticated ensemble. Wear them with a pair of SAYE's organic cottons socks for a contemporary take on classic court footwear.
