Carl is a comfortable, durable and 80s-inspired high-top sneaker with multiple model variations that cover a wide spectrum from retro to modern.
The upper material consists of a high-quality leather substitute with a particularly soft feel, high wearing comfort and natural look. The material is durable, water-repellent and GRS certified, meaning it is made of 100% recycled components, which in turn can be recycled. In addition, the leather substitute was tested again by ethletic for critical elements and ingredients.
For particularly high durability, the natural rubber sole is processed with a slightly thicker seam than is usual with conventional manufacturers. The natural product is regranulable and can thus be reused for the production of new soles.
All other materials such as laces, labels and yarns are Ökotex certified and can be recycled at the end of their life cycle.
