SAYE's Vegan Sneakers Are Made Out of Cactus Leaves

An innovative material replacing traditional leather.

Continuing its sustainability efforts, SAYE has now dropped a new iteration of the Modelo ‘89 made out of cactus leaves.

Created in partnership with Desserto Mexico, the shoe uses cactus vegan napa made from the Nopal cactus to replace traditional leather. The lines and heels of the sneaker are constructed using this sustainable material, while organic cotton and bamboo are used for the lining and shoelaces. Overall, the kicks come with a beige upper, which is contrasted by khaki green details on the heels, tongues and sides. The look is rounded out with a rubber-colored midsole.

SAYE’s Modelo ‘89 “Vegan Cactus” retails for $192 USD online. Two trees will be planted for each SAYE sneaker sold.
