SAOLA was born with a clear goal: to offer cool, comfortable, and above all, innovative and sustainable products to change the shoe industry, one of the most polluting in the world.
After months of research, visiting factories and suppliers, Saola decided to focus the first phase of their revolution on what makes the biggest impact. Around 60% - 70% of the carbon footprint of shoes comes from materials and manufacturing.
They use recycled, bio-sourced materials and innovative technologies.
The uppers of SAOLA shoes are made with recycled plastic bottles, otherwise known as PET.
