Kind Soles: Deuce
It's cool to be kind, not only to people, but also the planet. Introducing Deuce's first collection of sustainable sneakers.
Deuce’s curated edit is part of our newly launched Kind Soles collection, a considered edit of sustainable designs. Thoughtfully designed in New Zealand, the collection consists of three unisex sneakers, each playing a part in protecting the planet.
Two of the sneakers, Jax & Jango, feature a transparent leather-look material called Bio Veg that's made out of Bio Polyols with elements derived from plants. The main raw material is field corn! We sourced Bio Veg from an Italian supplier named Coronet. Bio Veg is PETA approved vegan and LCA accredited (life cycle assessment).
The third style, Gaia, is made with Repreve, a traceable fibre made out of recycled plastic bottles. The lightweight material offsets the use of petroleum in the manufacture, emitting fewer greenhouse gases and conserves water and energy in the process.
We’ve even gone the extra mile with additional shoelaces made from 100% recycled polyester and shoeboxes from 100% post-consumer recyclable cardboard.
These sneakers feature Deuce’s new BLOOM™ footbed, made from algae biomass, a sustainable, plant-based material that helps clean polluted water. Every pair of footbeds returns 18 litres of clean water to the habitat and cleans 11 M3 of air!
We’re committed to making timeless, thoughtful sneakers that not only put our customers front of mind, but also the planet.
This collection is available to shop online and in the following stores: Deuce Newmarket, Newmarket, Riccarton, Albany, Sylvia Park, Bayfair, Dunedin, Lambton Quay, Queensgate and Queenstown.
