The White Vegan Sneakers Edit

White sneakers might just have eclipsed yoga pants for the most ubiquitous street wear.

So, since we’re now wearing sneakers with practically our entire wardrobe, why not feel aligned AF with the brand we’re supporting every time we slip them on?

PRAVAYAMA brings you the White Vegan Sneakers Edit from cool eco-conscious brands who manufacture with passion, purpose and integrity.

ETHLETIC: White Cap Lo

Vegan, fairtrade, made of certified organic canvas-twill cotton from small farmers in India, Ethletic stands for ‘Movement, Awareness, Evolution and Passion’. Its guidelines are ‘fair, vegan and sustainable’ and it strives to demonstrate that ethical behaviour is possible throughout life and business. Ethletic have set the bar HIGH.

VEJA: Wata White Pierre Sneaker

The Wata (cotton in Japanese) is a unisex sneaker made from organic cotton and wild rubber and is part of Veja’s vegan collection. The brand is dedicated to transparency and offers customers stunning visual stories behind the manufacturing of their products.

AHIMSA: Sneaker 771

Sustainably sourced synthetic leather with organic latex and cork insole. Ahimsa was founded in 2013 by Gabriel Silva, a long-time vegan who set out to create lovingly hand-made goods in his home country of Brazil that did not compromise his high ethical standards of doing no harm to other beings.

ETIKO: Lowcuts

These sneakers most resemble those other famous ones – yes you know. But Etiko has some major points of difference: The sole is made from FSC-certified sustainable latex, the laces and canvas are made from certified organic cotton and the dyes are toxic-free and they are made with animal product-free glue – 100% vegan. Oh, and Etiko was the first non-food brand to gain Fairtrade certification in Australia & New Zealand.

HOLSTER: Wander sneaker

Founded by partners Ben and Natalie in 2001, Holster uses recycled materials for packaging and vegan-friendly components in all their footwear. The brand is Vegan Society UK and PETA approved. Holster supports the welfare of koalas, indigenous communities and donates annually and per sale to multiple African charities for young children.

GRAND STEP SHOES: The Charley

These sneakers are made from sustainably produced organic hemp fibre, while the inner lining is 50% organic cotton and 50% organic hemp fibre and the sole is made from natural rubber. The German brand manufactures in Vietnam and Slovakia under fair working conditions and is dedicated to comfort just as much as quality.
