Set sail to a sustainable future
The Skipper Sneaker
From the ocean to your feet
Every year, 12 million tons of plastic are dumped into our oceans. Traditionally crafted in one of Portugal’s oldest footwear factories, Skipper is made with one of the most eco-friendly fibres in the world, SEAQUAL™ nylon, to efficiently combat marine plastic pollution. Good for our planet, ideal for your style.

Together for a Clean Ocean
Founded in 2016, SEAQUAL™ produces sustainable fibres created by upcycling deep sea plastic waste. For every kilogram of fibre produced, a kilogram of waste is removed from the oceans. With circularity in mind, the SEAQUAL™ initiative supports local communities and inspires people to live in a waste-free environment.
