Today Volvo Cars Canada and Casca Footwear take steps toward a sustainable future with an inspired shoe

RICHMOND HILL, ON, Sept. 22, 2021 /CNW/ - Today, as a symbol of support for World Car Free Day, Volvo Cars Canada and Casca footwear launch a limited-edition sneaker inspired by the pure electric Volvo XC40 Recharge. The shoe is now available to Canadians for purchase ($198 CAD) at https://ca.casca.com/pages/volvoxcasca.

Incorporating considered, long-term sustainable, and circular approaches to design, the shoe is in recognition of the brands' shared vision for a carbon-neutral future.

"We're excited to team up with Casca footwear who share similar values and combine our passions for sustainability, technology, and understated modern design," said Matt Girgis, managing director of Volvo Car Canada Ltd. "At Volvo Cars, we are committed to setting the highest standards of sustainability in mobility and that goes beyond electrifying our fleet to transforming all aspects of our business. The shoe we have created with Casca in celebration of World Car Free Day, is one way to recognize the many steps we are taking on our journey to climate neutrality."

The goal was to create a shoe rooted in conscious design. Scandinavian influences of the XC40 Recharge were purposefully integrated for a collaborative new interpretation of Casca's trademark clean lines.

"The Volvo XC40 Recharge was designed to reduce environmental impact, so it was the perfect inspiration for the shoe," said Kevin Reid Lead Director and Co-Founder, Casca. "Through this collaboration we're also celebrating many design firsts ? our first shared design, our fastest production to market, and new recycled materials we've never used before."



At the core for both Volvo Cars and Casca is progress ? innovating and advancing towards a better future for all.  As a leader in sustainability, Volvo Cars is committed to reducing their lifecycle emissions per vehicle by 40% by 2025 and producing only fully electric vehicles by 2030. Casca's adoption of water-based, low-energy UV treatment processes coupled with their 2-year product warranty are a testament to their buy less, waste less philosophy.

"We know that being advanced isn't just about great design and technology, it means implementing ethical and sustainable practices," said Braden Parker, CEO and Co-Founder, Casca. "This is just one of many similarities we see between our brand and Volvo Cars, we both want to create something with intention that lasts."
