The company aims to arrive at a 90% use of sustainable materials for its entire men’s, women’s and children’s range by 2020, becoming 100% sustainable by 2021.
The corporate mission of innovation and sustainability is also strengthened by the new and revolutionary Primus Lite II Bio shoe, available online as of May 20th in a limited edition that costs $160/pair.
