Embark on a Sustainable and Ethical Journey with Light Treads' Manufacturing Process

At Light Treads, we take pride in our commitment to sustainability and ethical practices, which enables us to produce safety work and uniform footwear that are not only multi-functional but also environmentally friendly. Each pair is crafted with utmost care, ensuring transparency, ethical treatment of workers, and responsible manufacturing.

Transparency and Ethical Practices

We believe in being transparent about our manufacturing process and working with trusted partners who share our commitment to sustainability. To ensure the safety and fair compensation of workers, we adhere to global BSCI and REACH standards. Our materials are GRS certified, guaranteeing that they are sourced responsibly and meet stringent environmental criteria. With zero tolerance for bonded labor, we strive to create a positive and ethical work environment.

Recycled Materials: Transforming Waste into Shoes that Cares for You and the Planet

Light Treads' footwear is crafted with a strong emphasis on sustainability and functionality. Our shoes are made with recycled leather, a lightweight and durable material created by transforming discarded leather scraps into fine fibers. These fibers are combined with eco-friendly materials, resulting in a leather that surpasses the strength and durability of traditional full-grain leather. Our manufacturing process is solvent-free, utilizing a patented high-pressure water jet system that allows for the recycling and reuse of 95% of the water used.

In addition to recycled leather, we repurpose post-consumer plastic waste to create polyester fibers for our shoelaces and shoe linings. By recycling plastic bottles and other plastic waste, we contribute to the reduction of plastic pollution and support a circular economy. Comfort is a top priority for us, which is why our shoes feature insoles crafted with natural cork. This material not only provides antibacterial and odor-resistant properties but is also complemented by dual-density foam padding for optimal support and comfort.

Furthermore, our commitment to sustainability extends to our durable outsoles, which are made from recycled rubber compounds. These outsoles are designed to be slip and oil-resistant (SR-C Rating), ensuring enhanced safety, while also incorporating water-repellent technology. By utilizing recycled rubber, we actively contribute to reducing rubber waste and preserving natural resources. With Light Treads, you can enjoy footwear that not only showcases style and durability but also makes a positive impact on the environment.
