The manufacturing ethics and design of our flagship women's model are not the only aspects we give our all to, and when we work on the development of our sneakers, at COG we leave nothing to chance when it comes to their comfort.

Our goal: to offer you the best shoe experience, and for you to feel truly comfortable in your vegan shoes.
For this, we chose an interior coating for the lining and insole of our tennis shoes, with anti-perspirant, anti-odor, hypoallergenic and antibacterial properties, for unparalleled comfort throughout the day.

Behind the scenes of our ethical sneakers for women
Did anyone tell you?
In addition to being exclusively vegan , our women's Winton is made from materials made in Spain and Italy, for casual shoes 100% Made In Europe !
All our women's vegan sneakers are designed in a small family workshop on a human scale and with multi-generational know-how in the north of Portugal. Workshop employees assemble our sneakers by hand, for optimal quality and resistance.
Each of our visits gives us the pleasure of meeting our partners and working with them to improve our models, to get to know each of the workshop employees better, and to ensure that the manufacturing of our shoes is carried out in good conditions and a secure framework for our partners.
This is also the COG spirit: producing eco-responsible and vegan sneakers, within a structure that values people for a brand that is intrinsically ethical and philanthropic.

At COG, our love of life is as strong as our love of fashion. We are proud not to use animal skin as leather, but also to entrust the manufacturing of our shoes to workshops that respect human rights and the well-being of each individual.
Today, our brand is going even further in eco-responsibility with the Topsy model. A designer and comfortable sneaker, made in Europe in human-scale family workshops, from plant-based and recycled materials. Let yourself be surprised by our vegan, ecological and ethical low-top women's sneaker.
Une basket basse femme composée de matières écologiques
En créant la Topsy, on a voulu vous proposer le plus fin millésime en matière de basket écologique grâce à l'utilisation de déchets viticoles recyclés.
Pour concevoir le revêtement extérieur de notre sneaker basse pour femme vegan, on a opté pour un similicuir composé de marc de raisin, de polyester recyclé et de polyuréthane à base d'eau, fabriqué en 7 étapes :
- Récolte du raisin
- Extraction du jus pour boissons
- Récupération des déchets du raisin (peau, pépins, tiges)
- Broyage des résidus sec (marc de raisin)
- Mélange aux matières liantes
- Étalage, texture et teinte
- Matière prête à l'emploi
Pour le reste, on utilise exclusivement des matières écologiques et recyclées, certifiées OEKO TEX 100 :
- La doublure intérieure est fabriquée à base de bouteilles plastiques repêchées en Méditerranée, puis revalorisées.
- Les lacets sont tissés au Portugal à partir de polytéréphtalate d'éthylène (PET) recyclé.
- La semelle intérieure est composée de liège et de fibres plastiques recyclées.
- La semelle extérieure est en caoutchouc recyclé à 30 %.
Fabrication écologique rimant avec production locale et distances de transports maîtrisées, nos matériaux sont non seulement sélectionnés pour leur qualités, mais aussi selon leur provenance, puisque tous sont sourcés en Italie, au Portugal et en Espagne.
Les matières sont ensuite acheminées et montées en chaussures dans le nord du Portugal, à moins de 800 km de la France. Produire dans un pays proche de la France, nous permet de réduire les distances d’importation des marchandises, et d'éviter l’utilisation de matières premières et de produits venus de l'autre bout du monde.
En résumé, la Topsy est une sneaker basse femme 100 % européenne, pensée pour limiter considérablement l’impact écologique lié au transport, et notamment les émissions de gaz à effet de serre.
When ecology rhymes with ethics
By choosing to manufacture our low-top vegan women's sneakers in the north of Portugal, we not only contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions, but also to more ethical production.
Our sneakers are carefully made by passionate artisans, in workshops subject to European labor law and human rights regulations. Employees work there in good conditions, in a secure environment, respecting health and hygiene rules, and receiving fair remuneration.
Far from the working conditions that prevail in certain countries, we have the guarantee that our eco-responsible sneakers are made in good hands and that their manufacturing corresponds to the values that we defend: employee well-being, social justice and good safe ethical.
Calling on Portuguese production houses also means entrusting our women's low-top sneakers to craftsmen renowned for their know-how and expertise. A way for us to combine ecology, ethics and quality production, by offering you items that meet all expectations in terms of design, comfort and durability.
A low-top vegan women's sneaker that is as elegant as it is comfortable
With its sober but elegant design, the Topsy is a real must-have for your wardrobe. Indeed, our vegan women's low-top sneakers go just as well with the most casual looks as with the most chic pieces in your wardrobe. Its plus, many colors available so that everyone can find what they are looking for: white/black, black/white, white/blue, white/red, white/beige and even blue/white/red to tickle our chauvinistic side!
But the manufacturing ethics and design of women's low-top sneakers are not the only aspects to which we give our all. In terms of comfort, nothing was left to chance during the development of the Topsy: months of research allowed us to design an optimal line and shape, to make wearing the shoe as pleasant as possible.
Our wish is that you feel as light in your head because of the values you support, as comfortable in your shoes on your feet.
For the interior covering, we therefore favored quality recycled materials which have anti-perspirant, anti-odor, hypoallergenic and antibacterial properties. Result: unparalleled comfort throughout the day.
Comfortable to wear, easy to maintain
To maintain your pair of Topsy, it's very simple: a small damp cloth and a small brush to access the hollow parts, and gently rub the outside of the shoe until it regains all its shine. All that remains is to let it dry in the open air, being careful not to expose the pair of sneakers too much to the sun so as not to deteriorate the colors.
For the maintenance of imitation nubuck type parts, a soft bristle brush or a crepe brush is recommended. Take your brush and rub gently in a circular shape. That's it !
Do you want to give your insoles a second lease of life and give them a fresh smell? Remove them from your shoes, place them in an airtight bag with a little baking soda, then leave for a few hours. Shake your soles vigorously to remove all the powder, then place them back inside your Topsy.
Last important point: our low-top vegan women's sneakers are not designed to be machine washed.
The Topsy women's low-top sneaker: a name steeped in history
More than just a sneaker, the Topsy is a true hymn to life. To find its name, we drew inspiration from the life of an elephant born in Asia in 1867 and died in New York in 1903.
Having spent her life in captivity in a circus, and suffering multiple abuses and mistreatment, in a gesture of defense - while someone tried to make her swallow a lit cigarette - Topsy ends up killing her owner. She was sentenced to death, and Topsy was electrocuted in public on January 4, 1903, at Coney Island.
By taking her last breath, Topsy became a true symbol of animal abuse. For COG, giving the name of this elephant to our women's low-top sneaker is a way of paying homage to her, but also of proudly displaying our values, by calling for greater consideration of animal life.
And so that the story of this elephant does not repeat itself, our sneakers are made without any cruelty towards animals. The Topsy, like all our shoe models, is 100% vegan and labeled PETA APPROVED VEGAN.
