VYN is not only a sneaker brand. Through their circular system of wear, care, repair and the engagement of the customer, the sneaker’s lifetime gets extended by multiple times and reduces environmental waste drastically.
Natural resources are dwindling and landfills are overflowing. Every year 25 billion pairs of footwear are produced with a lifespan of 1-2 years. Europe alone disposes of 2.5 Billion pairs into landfill every year. Away from a passive consumption behavior towards an active wear, care, repair experience, VYN provides a newly constructed sneaker with replaceable parts, tools for the shoe care and inspirational instructions. Our sneakers are made in Italy from premium materials that have been consciously sourced – from the German leathers, the unique Italian sole unit to the Portuguese cork insole.
VYN fosters a responsible, hands-on and joyful interaction by the customer with the product and stands for the mindset “buy less, appreciate more, love for longer”.
