Roscomar has unveiled a new collection of sneakers constructed from organic materials, bio-based fibers and recycled elements. The sneaker in the capsule are completely circular, with the materials able to be recycled into both other fashion items and for use in other industries.

The capsule consists of two styles, the Court and the Rv3, which have been designed for everyday use based on classic styles. For the Court, Roscomar has used sustainable leather and suede certified gold by the Leather Working Group. The Rv3 is produced from entirely vegan styles, with a knit upper produced from Tencel, a Lyocell fiber produced from sustainable forest fibers. The Court is available in white leather and light gray, “Sand,” “Conifer” and black suede while the Rv3 comes in white, light gray and black.

Both the Court and the Rv3 utilize Roscomar’s signature outsole units produced from 90% natural and recycled rubber. The label’s natural rubber is biodegradable, and its growth process increases biodiversity and absorbs carbon. Additionally, the insoles are produced from recyclable PCU and the midsoles are 69% made of sugarcane.

The two sneakers are available now from the Roscomar web store, as well as more information about the materials used in the production of each shoe. Roscomar has also launched an end-of-life returns program for its sneakers, meaning that old Roscomars can be returned and transformed into new materials by the brand.
