Recycled & Vegan

RECYCLED l VEGAN
Manon is our very first shoe with textiles using recycled polymers for the jean and tie-dye uppers! Our recycled fabrics are sourced from an innovative Italian textile company named Juanpovedo. The vegan rubber sole is the same as with our very popular "Jess" model. It is super comfortable.
This is our most sustainable innovation yet and is in line with our commitment changing the way women buy and consume more thoughtfully.
I have been wearing Manon all week to test out the fit and comfort. As a super casual, rubber-soled shoe, I wore it everywhere from the pool to commencement at the stadium. The fit is similar to our classic leather Manon. The textile is snug around the toe box at first and I was worried that I couldn't get it on my foot. But, as I pulled it on and walked around, I found that the fabric moved nicely with me. I have a wide foot and stayed true to my size. If you have a wide foot are concerned about it being too narrow, I'd suggest going up a half size if you have a wide foot.
Tanya and I will continue to push ourselves to help our clients build a more sustainable closet and we look forward to sharing our next product innovation with you very soon.
