Certified Leather (terracare)
Leather sustainably produced in Germany according to high social and ecological standards. Through the conscious use of resources such as water, chemicals and energy, Terracare leather is not only produced in a particularly ecological way, but is also extremely low in pollutants.
The VAUDE "PVC-free" seal means that this product is manufactured completely without PVC (polyvinyl chloride). Looks like truck tarpaulin, is just as durable and waterproof, but consists of PU (polyurethane) coated textile fabric instead of PVC. PVC often contains plasticisers (phthalates) which are suspected of being harmful to health.
OrthoLite insoles are made of open-pored polyurethane foam. They’re extremely breathable, durable and prevent the formation of fungi, bacteria and odours. The EcoPlush variant used contains 25% organic castor oil, the upper sole material consists of 50% recycled polyester. OrthoLite insoles are machine washable.
The V-Flow value indicates the strength of the shaft in combination with the midsole and outsole. V-Flow 4 are athletic urban shoes which are prefect for everyday life, work or adventures in nature. They offer you great comfort and movement.
