Schoeller® techniques



Benefit from Eco-OrthoLite® comfort. Each pair of Eco Vegan Shoes (except the sandals) comes with Eco-OrthoLite® removable insoles. They cushion and support your feet and keep them cool, dry and odour free. They are machine washable.
 

Long lasting cushioning

Our insoles support the unique structure of the foot. Your insole will retain over 95% of its thickness over time and won’t flatten out.
 

Cool and dry feet

Our insoles are made with open cell foam, allowing air to circulate around the foot, keeping your foot cool. The moisture management system leads moisture away from the foot. When you put off your shoe, any remaining moisture dries very quickly due to the airflow allowed by the open cell network.
 

Odour free shoes

Eco-OrthoLite® contains a patented antimicrobial formulation to fight fungus, bacteria and odour in the shoe. The EPA/FDA approved antimicrobial is added during formulation. It is linked to the foam and will not wear off over time.


Eco-OrthoLite® insoles are partly made of recycled polyurethane, and partly of polyurethane from castor beans. Castor beans thrive where no other crop could ever grow and they need very little water. They are a very sustainable source of polyurethane, which normally comes from petroleum oils.

Great comfort

Keep your feet dry, on the right temperature and protected with Schoeller®'s high tech fabrics and finishes!
 

c_change™

c_change™ is a bionic climate membrane. It is wind and waterproof. It reacts to changing temperatures. It copies the effect of a fir cone opening and closing in different weather conditions. Depending on the situation, breathability or heat-retention increases or decreases. c_change™ ensures a pleasant body climate.
 

coldblack®

Dark colours are known to heat up easier than light colours. They absorb both the visible and invisible elements of sunlight. Many textiles offer poor protection from UV rays. The new coldblack® generation guarantees a minimum UV protection of UPF 30 without affecting the look or feel of the product.
 

ecorepel®

Isn’t it fascinating how ducks can dive under water and re-emerge with their feathers still dry? Ducks produce an oily secretion that makes their plumage repel water. ecorepel® imitates this natural protection as a highly functional and odorless high-tech finish.

It is based on long paraffin chains that wrap themselves spiral-like around individual fibres, filaments or yarns in a very fine film. This reduces surface tension so that water droplets and even mud run off. The breathability is not affected and the feel remains pleasantly soft.

ecorepel® is made without fluorocarbons, making it both washable and 80-100% biodegradable.
