MELA sneakers are the first shoes in the world to be certified by the Fairtrade Cotton Standard and the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS).


The sneakers are literate all-rounders: The robust organic cotton canvas makes the sneakers particularly breathable. The leather is vegetable-tanned and chromium-free. The natural rubber soles cushion the feet and ensure a soft and comfortable fit.  At the same time, it gives the sneakers flexibility and grip.


In order to ensure the sneakers’ longevity, MELA have used water-based and GOTS-certified adhesives and integrated a 360 ° seam into the design. Thus, MELA sneakers combine modern design with the highest quality for people and the environment.
