The performance runner style is a reinterpretation of the fall/winter 2019 runner shown on the Rick Owens men’s runway. Woven in a 3D seamless wool knit, the material and seamless technique provides breathability, elasticity and comfort. To reduce plastic usage, the detailing is made from plant-based castor oil materials. Both the insole and outsole are made from a blend of recycled and natural based materials, recycled plastic bottles and amazonian rubber.
The vegan hiking style was created for comfort, performance and protection on rough and natural terrain. This style features the Rick Owens signature double back tag as well as the men’s runway signature mega lacing detailing. As an alternative to using leather, the upper is made from corn waste, reducing the usage of petroleum based materials. The midsole and outsole are made from recycled and natural based materials, recycled plastic bottles and amazonian rubber.
