Staying true to their commitment to reduce their overall carbon footprint, the Vans UltraRange VR3 shoes are a new addition to the Vans family. These shoes include a molded EcoCush™ midsole, a lightweight construction, a breathable upper, and an EcoWaffle™ rubber outsole.
- Upper: 50% Organic Cotton, 36% Recycled PET, 14% Recycled Nylon
Organic Cotton - Grown using methods and materials that have a low impact on the environment. Organic production reduce the use of toxic pesticides and fertilizers which in turn is better for earth and humans alike.
Recycled Nylon - Nylon accounts for about 10% of ocean debris. By purchasing a product made with recycled nylon you are helping to minimize the growth of the 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic debris in the ocean.
EcoCush™ - The EcoCush™ drop-in footbed consists of 70% biobased FATES™ foam, derived from plant-based oils without sacrificing performance. Provides all day comfort and support with a molded heel cup and arch shape. With 70% less Carbon Dioxide emissions than polyurethane, they also have no toxic solvents and heavy metals.
EcoWaffle™ - Developed and engineered to maintain Vans' famous grip and durability, this eco rubber compound is made from responsibly sourced natural rubber instead of petroleum based synthetic rubber.
