Better Canvas™

Better Canvas™

Made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic with Global Recycle Standard (GRS) certification, each pair of Nothing New shoes is composed of the equivalent of 5.6 plastic water bottles. In addition to helping clean up our world, over 160 gallons of water are saved per pair vs. normal canvas sneakers. With high tensile strength and bold colors, it gives meaning to the saying, "One person’s trash is another person’s treasure!"

Our Outsoles

Our Outsoles

After more than one full year of outsole testing, we were able to develop what we think are the longest lasting and most comfortable sustainable outsoles on the market. While we originally wanted the outsole to be made entirely of recycled material, after testing various combinations we opted to use virgin natural rubber in addition to recycled rubber and recycled cork in order to maximize flexibility and traction and longevity.

True Stitch Construction

True Stitch Construction

Stitch construction may be significantly more expensive than cement or vulcanized construction, but it’s far superior for both your feet and the environment. Unlike vulcanized or cemented sneakers, stitch construction creates a more flexible and durable bond between the outsole and upper and eliminates the harmful byproducts of chemical heavy glue and sulfur emissions from vulcanization.
