More sustainable than sustainable? Our new low-top sneaker certainly is: the fine Italian leather (LWG-certified) as a by-product of livestock farming is vegetable-tanned and dyed in the same way, making it the best choice for leather shoes even for the ecologically demanding. The sole and footbed can easily keep up. That's what we call design without compromise and with a clear conscience.
Our fine calfskin comes from Italy and is a by-product of the livestock industry. So our environmental protection already starts with the purchase of the leather.
The LWG certification shows that the tannery meets the highest standards of environmentally friendly production. The tanning agents are obtained from FSC® certified woods, thus tanning is purely vegetable without chrome and with a saving of 53.7% water. The factories where the leather production takes place comply with the ISO14001 standard and are EMAS registered (for environmental management and with environmental audit).
If you want to keep your ducks for a long time, you should take care of them. With all its positive properties, leather is a sensitive material that remains supple, dirt and water repellent and retains its original colour only with regular care.
Impregnate your DUCKS definitely before the first application with an impregnating spray. It is better to apply a thin layer more regularly than once a thick one.
For a cleaning, use a clean, damp cloth and gently wipe the ducks. Then let the shoe air dry.
Fill damp ducks with absorbent material (newspapers) and let them dry slowly – not directly on or near the heater.
An absolute eye-catcher.
Leather as it should be, look as it must be. The sporty sneaker radiates real elegance and is yet very casually relaxed. Fits every style and every occasion.
Leather. Perfect for your Ducks.
Leather has been used to make shoes for many centuries - no wonder - the many advantages of this material are made for sustainable and durable shoes. Simply natural Hightech.
Extraordinary inside and out.
The sole of our most sustainable sneaker is another sensation: also made in Italy from biodegradable recycled rubber (Go!Zero). What do you get out of it? On the one hand, it's extremely abrasion-resistant and durable, and on the other, it's a real conservationist.
