Sustainable by Design
Sustainability isn’t a trend
Our fashion choices shouldn’t impact the world around us. That’s why we do things differently. With care for the people we work with and the planet we walk on.
Shoes to love, not to landfill
We’re fierce advocates of slow fashion and believe great design is seasonless. The cycle of endless discounting and throwaway fashion has a huge impact on our planet, that’s why our philosophy is 'buy fewer, choose better'.
A philosophy that means enduring quality is built into every shoe we design, so that you’ll love to wear your favourite pair, again and again.
Manufactured with care
We care about how our products are made and the people who help us to make them. Our shoes are created in partnership with family-run factories in Portugal and Spain who have passed their skills from generation to generation.
Manufacturing in Europe helps us to produce in smaller quantities which avoids waste and means they can be transported by road, not air.
Choosing European partners means we can also be sure the craftspeople who make our shoes are looked after, just like an extension of our own team. This means you can be confident you’re getting the best quality and that everyone involved in making your shoes has an excellent standard of living.
Commitment to responsible leather
As members of The Leather Working Group we are committed to sourcing leathers from accredited tanneries.
When you buy a pair of our shoes you can be assured that the leather comes from responsible, traceable sources and has been produced in a tannery that meets the highest anti-pollution and energy efficiency standards.
Vegan capsule collection
What matters to you matters to us, that’s why we responded to customer requests and created our Peta approved vegan capsule range.
We took our best-loved styles and re-imagined them using the highest-quality, eco-friendly fabrics that deliver the style and performance you’d expect from an Air & Grace shoe, only now, vegan friendly.
Greener packaging and delivery
We're always looking for new ways to reduce our environmental impact, at every step. When you order online the delivery is carbon neutral, meaning all emissions are offset.
All our paper packaging is FSC certified, we use paper composition stickers on our shoes. All of which helps us in our commitment to reducing plastic usage and ensuring our shoes leave a lighter footprint.
