Hope - Vegan Black/Lite Canvas Shoe
The world’s first plastic-free black and tan vegan sneakers, created in partnership with nature.
Ethically-made, entirely plastic-free and animal-friendly, WAES Hope black vegan trainers with tan rubber soles are arguably the world’s most guilt-free footwear.
Working in partnership with nature, we’ve created the ultimate pair of plant-based, super smooth, sustainable black canvas shoes, made from all-natural materials.
Uncompromising on style and comfort, our eco-friendly black canvas trainers feature a classic design, reborn for minimal ecological impact. Combining a black canvas body with black laces and tan rubber soles, Hope vegan trainers are an everyday essential that complete any look.
Every pair of these black sustainable trainers is lovingly handmade in Portugal from organic cotton with natural gum soles, hemp stitching and vegan conifer glue.
Our plastic-free rubber soles take a week to pour, bake and cure, resulting in a supple yet hard-wearing microstructure, containing thousands of tiny air bubbles. Once we’ve added our unique Infinite Cloud insoles, we’re left with a pair of black vegan sneakers that provide unrivalled comfort.
So go ahead, challenge every established norm and be plastic-free and vegan from the ground up with a pair of WAES game-changing Hope Vegan Black/Lite Canvas Shoes.

They look amazing and feel great, too. Worth the money!
I bought my first pair of Waes trainers after reading a review of them and am delighted. Great colour, very comfortable and plastic free - fantastic!
I love these shoes, they are the most comfortable trainers I own and the warm yellow colour gives me so much joy when I look down. Summer in a shoe! The fact that they are plastic free and biodegradable is a big bonus. Thanks WAES, I will be getting myself a boot for the autumn too.
Pleasantly surprised by the comfort. Fast delivery, with no plastic waste!
I had already bought a leather pair and was so impressed I decided to try these too. I am not disappointed, same great service, really well packaged. Love the shoes. They are expensive compared to other products on the market but they look and feel great. I especially like the darker sole (my other pair are red soled).
Once their repairable life is over, our compostable shoes break down into organic materials in ordinary composting, but only long after they have served a long and useful life which outstrips most footwear.
100% Natural Rubber Outsole
Our unique natural production process uses hand-poured rubber, which is cured for a week, and creates an alveolar microstructure of tiny networked air bubbles for unrivalled comfort and 100% sustainable trainers.
100% Plastic Free
Our eco shoes and trainers contain zero plastic, from the factory to your door, and including the packaging. We only use planet-friendly materials and natural organic processes which prioritise sustainability.
