Brand + Sustainability

With two main missions in mind, wildlife conservation and eco-design, Saola uses as many eco-friendly materials as possible to create cool, comfortable, and above all, innovative and sustainable products. Saola goes above and beyond when it comes to eco-materials using recycled plastic water bottles to make their uppers and extracting harmful algae foam from oceans and rivers to construct their soles. They believe that small steps create big change and It is with the accumulation of individual actions that we can tip the scales. 

Each year, 25 billion pairs of shoes are manufactured world-wide. Sadly, almost none of these are made sustainably, making the textile industry the world’s second largest polluter behind oil and gas. This stark reality was one of the major reasons why SAOLA Shoes started and what keeps them motivated to turn this ship around!
