KOMRADS Spartak Ancient yellow
Made of recycled and reused materials.
The Komrads ICNS have a history that goes way back. The sneaker was first made around the fifties in the Sovjet Union in response to the American basketball trainer, Converse All Stars. The Komrads ICNS symbolised the ‘comrade of the people’. In the 80’s and 90’s they also dominated the streets and many rock festivals.
However, the production was stopped in 2009. In 2015, Komrads reanimated the cult classic, remained faithful to the original black & white design but also added new, colourful versions. The Komrads ICNS were born!
Time for another important milestone: making the ICNS fully sustainable!
Of course the cool design of the ICNS has been retained! New is the sole made of 100% recycled rubber, the fabric is 100% recycled cotton and PET bottles, as well as the laces. No more metal rings and the insole is removable and made of recycled carbon (Arnetech insole). Production has also been moved from Slovakia to Portugal, where sustainable production and the best working conditions are guaranteed.
Made of recycled and reused materials:
- Upper: 100% recycled cotton
- Sole: made of 100% recycled rubber
- Inside lining & laces made of recycled cotton & plastic bottles
- Removable insole: recycled carbon (Arnetech insole)
- Vegan: Officially PETA-approved
- Produced in Portugal
Here it is, the Belgian cult brand Komrads with a new sustainable collection. The used materials are recycled, as much as possible, and the brand has a circular model to take back used shoes to use as materials for new production. Waste isn't waste until we waste it, right?
Komrads opts to save our limited resources and opts to avoid new virgin cotton and rubber. The materials are sourced as close as possible, often in Europe, to avoid transport emissions and be sure of fair production chain.
The production of the new collection takes place in Portugal. The ICNS collection is vegan. In these canvas sneakers Komrads have used recycled rubber for the sole and recycled PET bottles and recycled cotton for the fabric, metals are avoided to make recycling possible.
Komrads ICNS size normal to small. If you are between two sizes choose the bigger one.
