Created from the maison’s desire to explore innovative materials and techniques for the future, the latest footwear from Valentino for the first time partially involve recycled and bio-based materials. Available in a variety of different colors, the models are a firm step on Valentino’s path to a sustainable tomorrow. The collection lays a foundation of bio-based materials, employed as an alternative to leather produced from viscose and polyurethane of corn-derived polyols. These materials also partially make up the upper of both models and part of the Open’s side band. The strings are completely made of recycled polyester and the trademark studs feature recycled nylon. The conscious approach will act as a compass in Valentino’s transformative journey, not just as a Maison but also as a community, throughout various iterations; Valentino.com.
