Made in India Sneakers with Recycled Materials and Cotton

Recycled cotton prevents additional textile waste and requires far fewer resources than conventional or organic cotton. This makes it a great sustainable option. The quality of the cotton may be lower than of new cotton. Recycled cotton is therefore usually blended with new cotton. Recycled cotton can come from secondhand clothing or from textile waste or leftovers which are then spun into new yarns and fabrics. There are some notable limitations of recycled cotton, including separation of materials that are cotton/polyester mix. The most common materials for modern sneakers are leathers, textiles, synthetics, rubber, foam, and plastic. Each has its specific uses in footwear. Depending on your design, each material will have a place in your sneaker. Neeman’s signature Flyknit material, which can be found on footwear throughout the brand’s catalog, is made in-part with recycled plastic, but the Swoosh is doing more than sustainable kits.

With an aim to offer first-of-its-kind comfortable, all-day wear, Neeman’s, Hyderabad-based innovative designer footwear start-up, kick-started the 2021 season with the launch of its standout sneakers, ‘The Cotton Classics’. The distinctiveness of these cotton sneakers is its material, which is sustainably sourced cotton blended with recycled materials and the insole is lined with the Australian Merino Wool fabric. With this range, the company aims to give a contemporary spin to the classic evergreen footwear. ‘The Cotton Classics’ is a thoughtfully designed unisex footgear moulded with a super lightweight natural rubber sole and a diamond pattern for a superior grip and durability, making them ideal for your indoor and outdoor adventures. This new style is in line with the prevailing range of Neeman’s shoes that guarantee comfort, style, versatile daily wear and sustainable fashion. The design of this range was conceptualized and crafted in India.

Mr. Taran Chhabra, Founder, Neeman’s, says, “We are excited to launch our latest range, The Cotton Classics that is aligned to Neeman’s core philosophy of manufacturing comfortable, trendy, and planet-friendly shoes without compromising performance. Our latest footwear is a high-engineered product that will give your feet the utmost breathability, lightness and unparalleled comfort.” “We have been witnessing double digit-growth and seeing the positive response, we knew there was a demand for sustainable footwear and so, we had to launch something to respond to what customers are looking for,” added Chhabra. Neeman’s is India’s first start-up that makes shoes that can be worn anytime, anywhere and through the day. Made from Natural fibres the suitable for all gender shoes is designed to meet the style quotient of the millennials as well as that of the generation that prefers the simplistic look.

“Every day at Neeman’s has been inspiring and a new learning experience for us. With our Merino Wool shoes, we created a space for a fibre that was until then disregarded because of its wintery properties. Today, with the launch of our latest cotton all-day footwear, we are once again pushing the boundaries by reinventing the classic to offer a more dependable, relaxing, and eco-friendly pair of shoes,” elaborated Mr. Amar Preet, Co-founder/Director (Operations), Neeman’s.
