Making The Difference
Since day one we have made responsible product development a central pillar of the Uniform Standard design ethos. We select premium materials that integrate seamlessly and enhance our designs.
We select the highest quality full grain Italian leathers chosen for their texture, colour and durability. We work with tanneries that are audited and certified by The Leather Working Group.
They assess the compliance and environmental performance of tanneries globally rewarding good environmental practice based upon the highest industry standards. Our main tanneries are rated "Gold" the highest score achievable and all our leathers meet the REACH standard for chemical compliance.

Our custom European outsoles are produced with up to 25% recycled rubber and have been designed to deliver optimal comfort and durability. The process of recycling rubber is time-consuming. Each colour has to be individually hand-sorted, mixed and re-blended to produce outsoles that look good and last long.
Our moulded leather lined padded footbeds are manufactured using 100% recycled high density polyurethane foam designed for superior comfort and breathability and have an active carbon coating to enhance odour resistance.
Our flexible insole boards are specially developed using 100% recycled cellulose fibres that have no added dyes and effectively wick perspiration away from the foot.
Our 100% recycled cotton drawstring dustbags are made in Italy from recovered fibres that reduce waste and carbon emissions.
Our sturdy 100% Kraft card drawer shoe box is made from existing die forms to save energy. They are also made near to our shoe factory to save transport emissions and are designed to store your sneakers for many years.
