Founded in Barcelona, Saye (formerly called Wado) crafts sustainable and innovative vegan sneakers made from biodegradable vegan leather. Saye's aim is to offer cruelty-free, non-toxic alternatives to the classic sneakers out there which is why the brand works almost exclusively with bio-based materials.
For the upper of their signature vegan white trainers, Saye uses napa, mango, and cactus leather - all biodegradable, PETA-approved alternatives to animal-derived leather. Each of their top selling pairs such as the Saye Modelo '89 in vegan caramel, Modelo '89 in beige or vegan mango, are lined with either natural organic cotton, bamboo or recycled plastic derived from post-consumer waste. Their outsole is crafted from 30% natural and 70% synthetic rubber while their insole is made from recycled PU-foam, both materials allowing for maximum performance and comfort.
All of their sneakers come with organic cotton laces and a recycled cardboard box. Aiming to have a positive impact on our planet, Saye plants two trees for every pair of trainers sold. And don't forget their collection of Saye socks too!
