Our notes

We've not changed our NY Sneakers much since they first launched in 2015.

Like most models in our permanent collection, we've just made tweaks and adjustments along the way to make them the best vegan sneakers we know how.

The newest update we've made is to the uppers. In the latest batch, they're made with our new matt finish Italian vegan leather made with 69% biobased content. 

We love this new finish. We think it gives a more luxe feel & look. Actually, we're using it in all new batches of our white sneakers & trainers.

Another thing is the tan rubber outsoles on the bottom now have recycled content. You'll see this in the flecks of material contained within them.

Apart from that, nothing has changed. Same side-wall stitching on the outsoles. 

Same stitching details throughout the uppers. Same deep squishy recycled insoles. Same comfy fit. Same attention to detail you can expect from WVS, from the metal lace tips to the super-strong laces made from recycled polyester.

After all, what's there to change when you have such a classic silhouette?

  • Matt finish Italian vegan leather made with 69% biobased content.
  • Flexible, grippy and durable sidewall stitched rubber outsoles with recycled content. You'll see this in the flecks of material contained within them.
  • Deep and squishy recycled insoles.
  • There are two types of vegan suede lining the inside. This helps air circulate helping to keep your feet cool and providing another layer of comfort for your feet.
  • Strong laces made with recycled polyester with recycled lace tips.

    Hard wearing travel shoes

    I have been a long time customer of WVS & had these deceivers to my son in London rather than NZ ready to use for travelling. From day one they were perfect initially slight rubbing as my feet a bit swollen from travel but nothing a Band-Aid couldn’t fix. I have worn nearly every day for last 3 weeks including a bit of ‘off road’ - really happy. Easy to clean and I expect a few years of use . Stylish enough for walking around cities and practical enough for other places.

    No breaking in required, however (the heel)...

    I bought these shoes in anticipation for a trip to Japan and received them about 2 weeks before my vacation. They were my daily shoes and did not require breaking in at ALL! Very impressed. However, the fabric at the back of the heels were shredded by the end. I felt like they should have lasted longer than the total 4 weeks I had had them. I did find a local store to repair them, and overall I'm very happy with my purchase!

    Very comfy and stylish

    Exactly what I was looking for

    Nice fit, terrible quality

    These trainers fit well and are really comfy, but the heel fell apart within two weeks. I wouldn’t recommend unless they seriously up their quality control.

    Great look & comfort

    They look great, just as expected & are super comfy. A little on the large size, but totally wearable.
    I have worn several times & have noted a tiny amount of cracking
