Rethinking the classic tennis shoe, the upper material of our shoe is made from a vegan material called AppleSkin™.
It's a material that is made using repurposed apple waste from the juice industry in Bolzano, Northern Italy. Organic and recycled materials were consciously chosen where possible.
On the lateral side of the model, Sampla is embossed using gold foil with our shamrock logo neutrally embossed on the heel tab. This classic silhouette was responsibly hand produced by artisans in Portugal. Nice, simple, sustainable and made to last.
