The most sustainable leather sneaker

No plastics, screeching colours, chewing gum soles - the sneaker by Cervo Volante convinces with being natural, good taste - and a clear conscience!

Sargans and Albis are the new sneakers from Cervo Volante. At both places the red deer have left their traces.

Casual shoe with Italian flair

The deer leather sneaker is so flattering to the feet and perfect in form in its simplicity that it puts other trotters out of the race without much fuss in terms of suitability for everyday use. The modest top runner amongst the shoe models impresses with its classy casualness. Last but not least, it is no less than the environmentally safest sneaker on the market! Casual with style. Light, flexible and comfortable.

The name “sneaker” (to sneak) originally referred to the silent appearance of the rubber sole compared to the loud stomping of shoes with leather soles. With the emergence of the sporty sneaker in the 1920s, a shoe and fashion revolution began. The Cervo Volante Sneaker is also symbolic of a revolution that is silently started: A change towards a conscious and respectful approach to raw materials, components and people – also in the world of shoe fashion. Step by step.

ALBIS for him SARGANS for her

The men’s model of the new Cervo Volante sneaker is called Albis. It is named after the range of hills on the outskirts of Zurich, which may not be an imposing mountain peak but is home to wonderful flora and fauna. The red deer native to the area once migrated from eastern and central Switzerland via the Zurich Albis to the Mitteland. Only the wearers of the Sneaker Albis know about the wild luck of their existence near the city…

The woman’s model is called Sargans. The small town and region in the canton of St. Gallen can safely be called a “traffic junction for deer”. Every evening in winter, flocks of red deer migrate from the snow-covered slopes into the already green valley. Of course, when they cross some roads, the cars have to wait.
