We developed this collection of men’s sustainable shoes with a few clear goals in mind: make them comfortable, make them casual, and make them with as many recycled materials as possible.
The world doesn’t need more detrimental products but higher-quality, longer-lasting goods that leverage natural and recyclable materials. That was the catalyst for starting SAOLA: an everyday guy couldn’t find any cool-looking,
to wear day-to-day. So as any responsible father and husband would do, he quit his job and decided to make them himself. Fast-forward a few years, and we proudly present our Spring/Summer '23 collection of men’s sustainable shoes.
We’ve made great strides with this collection, introducing two new sneaker boot styles to the lineup. Made with recycled materials, the cleanly-styled Cannon Knit can kick it at the office and out on the town, while the Mindo isn’t afraid to wander off the beaten path on weekend adventures. No matter where you take SAOLAs, they’re super lightweight, stylish, and comfortable to wear.
But what really sets them apart from the pack is the combination of eco-friendly materials they’re made of. Recycled plastic, algae foam, natural cork, and organic cotton – every element is a step in the right direction to decrease our environmental footprint. And that’s a big deal because while the planet may be becoming increasingly polluted, changing the way we manufacture and consume goods can make a massive impact on the long-term well-being of the only home we have. And knowing that was enough for one man to quit his job to make better shoes for a better planet.
We hope that you will join the #MAKEANIMPACT movement and proudly wear SAOLA’s sustainable shoes as you walk through life. Thanks for being a part of the ride.
