Patented treatments and tested materials
Upside Down 3D mesh , in collaboration with Ariaprene
Our newly designed material allows for higher Abrasion Resistance and better breathability. The outer surface has a closed structure compared with the inner surface. This makes the fabric more absorbent on the outside. As a result, the inner surface, where your foot is touching, absorbs less water and stays closer to your foot.
Lava XL technology
Lava XL targets and defeats bad odors also self re-generates, meaning your shoes stay fresher, for longer, no matter what you’re doing.
We performed the rigorous Martindale test during the creation of Cala. In this test, the shoe is scratched several times to test the abrasion. Usually, this test stops at the 25k mark, with Cala, it withstood 102,400 cycles of the test.

What material are used to make your shoes?
- To make a water-friendly, lightweight and resistant pair of sneakers we need to work with:

- Upcycled 20% EVA in the Outsoles
- Non-toxic and solvent-free on the foam upper materials
- 100% Recycled strobel insole
- EVA mixed with Bloom algae on the insoles
- 100% recycled & recyclable packaging
- Additionally, we are Blue-sign partners.
How do I clean my shoes?
Can I remove the insole?
Yes, you can remove the insole and insert your own.
What is the difference between Cala, Canyon and Monsoon?
The main difference is the design! Cala is our lightest shoe in the collection, and features the foldable heel. The Canyon models have a bit more reinforcement on the top end of the shoe, so more suitable for hikes for example. While the Monsoon is just a bit lighter than Canyon and more suitable for water activities. They are all lightweight, odorless and quick drying.
