Introducing our first fully recycled upper

We're fully aware of the environmental challenges within our business and aim to be part of the solution. This means we will work closely together with partners and suppliers that push boundaries in combining luxury with sustainability. One of the first partnerships allows us to introduce ECONYL® yarn: discarded fishing-nets and other nylon waste, regenerated to premium nylon. This nylon is used for our new LT 01 Knitted, offering a premium sneaker with a fully recycled upper.

Premium nylon made from ocean waste


LT 01 Knitted White ECONYL®


How it works:

The ECONYL® Regeneration System starts with rescuing waste, like fishing nets, fabric scraps, carpet flooring and industrial plastic from landfills and oceans all over the world. That waste is then sorted and cleaned to recover all of the nylon possible.

Through a radical regeneration and purification process, the nylon waste is recycled right back to its original purity. That means ECONYL® regenerated nylon is exactly the same as virgin nylon.

ECONYL® regenerated nylon is processed into carpet yarn and textile yarn for the fashion and interior industries.

The beauty of ECONYL® regenerated nylon is that it has the potential to be recycled infinitely, without ever losing its quality. We believe circular design is the future and using ECONYL® is our first step on that journey.
