So proud of our new collection: the OCNS slip-ons!
These vegan shoes are made using a combination of SEQUAL's recycled ocean plastic yarn and other sustainable materials, such as recycled rubber, recycled sneakers and recycled cotton!
SEQUAL's innovative process involves collecting plastic waste from oceans, shorelines, and landfills. They then sort and clean the waste, turning it into a polymer which is transformed into yarn. This way we give a second life to plastic waste that would otherwise harm our oceans and wildlife. It's a significant step towards a more sustainable future.

At Komrads, we are aware of the criticism surrounding ocean waste plastics. Sometimes dubious processes are used to obtain ocean waste plastic. By working with our official and certified partner SEQUAL, we are certain about the ethical and reliable process.
Other ways how we are tackling this challenge:
- Responsible sourcing: We work with suppliers that follow strict sustainability and ethical standards to ensure that the materials we use are eco-friendly and responsibly sourced. This includes SEQUAL, our partner for recycled ocean plastic yarn, who is committed to sustainable practices throughout their supply chain.
- Design for durability: We design our sneakers for durability, so they last longer and don't need to be replaced as often. This helps reduce waste and supports a circular economy.
- Closed-loop production: We are exploring closed-loop production methods that can help reduce waste and extend the life of our products. For example, we incorporate end-of-life sneakers into new products or use them as raw materials for other industries.
- Promote sustainability: We encourage our customers to make sustainable choices and educate them on the importance of reducing waste and making eco-friendly choices, with women sneakers and men sneakers.
By taking a holistic approach to sustainability, we are working towards a more circular and eco-friendly future, with sustainable sneakers. We recognize that there is still much work to be done, but we're committed to being a part of the solution and making a positive impact on the planet.
