Recycled plastic looks fantastic!

Don’t you just love the exterior of our sneakers? Durable, waterproof, light, soft and resistant. We took years of R&D to develop that look. Yet, its best feature is hidden behind the scenes:  because it is made from recycled plastic bottles. A new life for the bottles, a cleaner life for the planet.

Look closely at any Yatay insole and you’ll notice tiny black flecks. That’s the recycled rubber we use to add resiliency, cushioning and comfort. At the same time we are helping the environment. Better for the planet, better for your feet.

BIOVEG: YATAY MATERIAL

Perfect combination of technical performance and cutting-edge aesthetics

The BioVeg (fabric used for the production of every single pair of Yatay) family of products represents how the market for alternative materials is much more sustainable compared to natural leather. PETA approved and cruelty-free, they differ from fossil fuel alternatives for their bio content, derived from plant-based resources. Read More This result was achieved through the use of bio-polyols originating from no-food and GMO free grains combined with textiles sourced from natural or recycled materials. The use of certified raw materials guarantees their composition: FSC certified viscose or post-consumer chain recycled polyester that is GRS certified. Close
