SAYE may only be a couple of years old, but the Barcelona-based sustainable sneakers label is already making great strides. Having garnered a cult following thanks to its bestselling Modelo '89 sneakers, it has just unveiled its latest style – the Modelo '95, or M95, a new retro-inspired trainer made from majority recycled materials.
This is eco-friendly footwear at its finest. Boasting an impressive list of premium sustainable materials that includes certified suede, recycled upper mesh, recycled lining, recycled outsole and insole, organic cotton laces and biodegradable packaging, the Modelo '95 reinforces SAYE's commitment to reducing waste and overproduction. Plus, for every pair purchased, SAYE promises to plant two trees in a reforestation project.
All this isn't to mention the sleek, versatile aesthetic of the Modelo '95. Available in four easy-to-wear colourways – Terra, Pedra, Deserto and Branca – the sneakers are infused with a relaxed '90s style that will work with any outfit – from a casual weekend-ready uniform of distressed jeans and worker jacket, to smart casual attire.
Sneakers that look good and do good, what's not to love?
