Why do we love Saye trainers?
Ready for some new kicks? Say hello to fast-growing vegan and bio-based trainer brand SAYE. Already on it’s way to becoming the next big cult-favourite trainer brand around, SAYE trainers are part of a new wave of brands forging a better, cleaner and more sustainable future for fashion.
Plus, it’s shoes are pretty cool. Designed in Barcelona and made in Europe, expect great quality, innovative materials and sleek European style from SAYE trainers.
Back in 2017, CEO and co-founder Marta Llaquet asked Elizabeth Sabin and Damian Augustyniak to join Wado. The idea was simple; to create an online sneaker brand that planted trees for every sale. The following year, they launched on Kickstarter, and produced 7,000 pairs of trainers.
Since, they’ve refined their trainer styles, expanded the trainer catalogue with more vegan styles, have planted over 150,000 trees and are now available in stores across the UK, USA, South Korea, Sweden and many more countries.
The classic Modelo '89 Vegan Bio-Based style is SAYE’s iconic trainer silhouette. Featuring a corn vegan leather upper, which is made using over 68% of bio-based materials, and 100% breathable organic cotton lining, this PETA-approved vegan trainer is kind to the planet and has a retro sporty style.
What’s more, this low-top style has a carbon footprint of just 6 kg of CO2e - 54% less than the industry average. If you can't resist a pair of hi-tops, the SAYE Modelo '89 Vegan Bio-Based Hi trainers are set to become your new favourites.
Putting a twist on the classic Modelo ‘89, this high-top version is made from a blend of corn, organic cotton, natural rubber and bamboo. Engineered with a grippy synthetic rubber outsole, vegan and bio-based outer, this style is comfortable, stylish and planet-friendly.
