The Monica, our vegan flat sandals are here just in time to walk you through the warmer seasons. Handcrafted, the cage effect straps hold the foot with comfort and can be worn with anything in your spring/summer wardrobe. Offered in carefully selected premium vegan materials: our brand-new extremely soft vegan Nappa and our iconic vegan Python. Artisanally made in Veneto, Italy.


Inspired by Monica Vitti, an Italian actress best known for her starring roles in films directed by Michelangelo Antonioni. Her biggest role was in “L’Avventura”, such an enormous success that her image was featured on an Italian postage stamp celebrating this cult film.

SUSTAINABILITY

Based on the “cradle to consumer” Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) conducted by SCS Global Services on our behalf, the Monica in Silver Nappa-Effect has the following impacts on the environment, and we have, or are working to offset these impacts by 110%:

    • Global Warming Potential (GWP): 12.6 kg CO2 eq / pair, which is the same as driving a typical passenger vehicle for 32 miles. We have more than offset this impact, by 110%, by investing in the Green Trees Reforestation project, working to plant trees in one million acres of the Mississippi Alluvial Valley, with over 6 million trees planted to date.
    • Fresh Water Consumption (FW): 0.55 m3 / pair, which is the same as running a typical dishwasher 18 times. We have more than offset this impact, by 110%, by investing in Water Restoration Certificates
    • Primary Energy Demand (PED): 210 MJ / pair, which is the same as operating a typical refrigerator for 8 days.
    • For the impacts on Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP), Acidification Potential (AP), Eutrophication Potential (EP), Smog / Photochemical Oxidant Creation Potential (POCP) and Fossil Fuel Depletion (FFD)
