What are SUAVS made of?

Beginning in 2020, SUAVS made it a mission to go green.  All SUAVS knits are made with 100% recycled knits made from post-consumer plastics.  Additionally, SUAVS is committed to further expanding sustainable practices which currently include:

  • Sustainable production using digital knitting to reduce material waste during manufacturing.
  • 100% vegan materials, even down to the glue used.
  • Donating all unsold SUAVS footwear to organizations such as Soles4Souls and LifeWorks.
  • SUAVS’ shoe boxes are dual purpose as they function as the initial shipping box and return packaging. 

SUAVS removable insoles are made with a sweat-wicking, breathable foam and can be washed and replaced.

SUAVS outsoles are made with a super flexible low-density rubber, allowing for maximum foot mobility.

Are SUAVS zero drop / minimalist shoes?

SUAVS shoes have a variety of sole drops and some can be considered minimalist. For more information regarding the specific shoe model, please refer to the details on the product page.

Are SUAVS considered "non-slip"shoes?

SUAVS are very grippy and work great on all types of floors. However, they are not certified as restaurant or oil grade anti-slip shoes.

Can I wash my shoes?

SUAVS can definitely be washed! We recommend taking the insoles out to wash them every 2 weeks – 1 month and air drying to keep your feet feeling fresh, even when going without socks. You can find washing instructions here.

Do SUAVS fit wide feet?

SUAVS are made with a flexible, digital knit fabric and are meant to fit like socks. The fabric adjusts to any foot from narrow to wide. The fabric will shrink back to its original shape after each wash, much like jeans! Additionally, The Legacy high tops are designed with a wider toe box for extra wiggle space.

Do they have arch support?

SUAVS come with a breathable, washable full support insole. If you need to use specialized orthotics with more support, the good news is SUAVS insoles are 100% removable and can be replaced with your own!

Full sizes? Should I size up or down?

SUAVS fit true to size. If you are unsure and typically size down in other footwear, we recommend sizing down. If you size up in other footwear, we recommend going a size up. Feel free to visit our size chart here
