Being earth-conscious means more than just utilizing responsibly sourced materials. It means taking a holistic approach to health and sustainability. These key values are the guiding principles in crafting this collection, with the goal being to make a more thoughtful product from the ground up.
From 100% certified organically grown cotton canvas uppers to a responsibly sourced natural rubber outsole that still maintains the grip and durability that Vans has been known for since 1966, the Eco Theory Style 36 Decon SF combines environmental consciousness with the classic Vans style you love. This iconic low top shoe also includes a checkerboard print, renewable hemp laces, and water-based inks and glues.
ORGANICALLY GROWN COTTON CANVAS: Our organic cotton canvas is certified GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) and made from natural seeds, without the use of pesticides or harmful chemicals.
HEMP LACES: This natural fiber is durable, anti-microbial, and manages moisture. It requires less water and acreage to grow, is a pesticide-resistant crop, and extracts metals from the soil.
NEW NATURAL RUBBER COMPOUND: This all-new Vans Rubber Compound is engineered to remove 100% of petroleum-based/fossil fuel rubber and replace it with natural rubber—all while maintaining the grip and durability that Vans has been known for since 66.
