OUR MATERIALS

Our corn is very pop, but it's no pop corn!

Usually, synthetic leather substitutes are petroleum-based. Instead, after two years of R&D, we discovered a way to use “bio-polyols” - polymers extracted from grains - as a raw material.

A little bit of wood. Why not ?

Our lining material is a masterpiece of technology: it leaves your feet dry and fresh while caressing them with a softness higher than silk’s. And it is obtained from tree pulp harvest from 100% sustainable plantations.

We flex with flecks!

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.

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.

QUALITY

Our sneakers are handmade by master shoemakers in the Italian region of Marche following time honoured traditions handed down from generation to generation reinterpreted using modern technology. Wholly sourced in Italy, the quality of our materials and components is uncompromised whilst minimizing our carbon footprint.
