Our promise of longevity through repairability, design and quality follows our belief in “buying less but better products”. Sneakers have high socioeconomic and environmental impacts, both in manufacturing and product disposal at the end of use. For example, 24 billion pairs of shoes are produced every year and over 90% end up in landfills after a short linear use cycle. VYN changes that through our circular support system of wear, care, repair, the sneakers’ lifetime gets extended multiple times.
We produce locally in Italy and partner with European, certified suppliers in order to provide best quality, high standard of labor conditions and short transport routes. VYN is contributing to the SDG 12- responsible consumption and production.
The upper is crafted with a super subtle sports calf leather from a gold rated German tannery. The full leather lining is made of a high-quality Italian calf leather which absorbs moisture and creates a comfortable foot climate. Portuguese cork will create your personal footbed with every step, regulate the temperature and has an anti-bacterial effect. Covered with absorbent calf leather and a thin foam layer on top, the premium VYN insole provides instant comfort. Our unique TPU outsole system is made in Italy reached best results through the LAB-testing of SATRA technologies.
The most vulnerable parts of sneakers are the heel and the heel counter. VYN has redesigned both pieces to be self-repaired by you and with just a few moves. Repairing and personalising your sneakers has never been easier! Comfort and durability of your sneakers gets highly increased with our nourishing shoe cream and shoetrees (Launch end in May). Enjoy!
