Our Sustainable Efforts

Sustainability is at the forefront of our minds at SANS MATIN. We still have a long way to go in achieving all of our sustainability goals, but below outlines some of the issues that we have been able to address to date.


Complete the lifecycle of your old SANS MATIN sneakers by recycling them with us and gain a 10% discount off your next pair! Simply box up your old SM sneakers, email us at for a pre-paid return label, send them off and leave the rest up to us! In association with our UK partners, items in good condition are then sent to charities both in the UK and in developing countries. All remaining items that can't be reused are repurposed as new materials such as insulation and carpet underlays. It's that easy to make a difference together!

Recycled Packaging

All our shoeboxes and care cards are made from 100% recycled cardboard and our shoe bags are made from recycled cotton (from clothing) and recycled PET (plastic bottles).

Locally Sourced Materials

By implementing locally sourced (within two hours of our atelier) leathers, canvases, laces, footbeds, shoeboxes and shoe bags we have been able to minimise our material waste and reduce our carbon footprint.
