Mai Chau Canvas Shadow Blue

3 avis

Make way for sunny days with Mai Chau's 100% vegan collection. Designed to accompany you on all your summer adventures, they'll bring comfort and pep to all your casual outfits.

N'go designed this pair to address the #1 problem with canvas tennis shoes: resistance. It was co-created with its community through surveys and round-table discussions. All validated by lab and wear tests to ensure durability.

To ensure this pair lasts more than one summer, the N'go teams selected thick GOTS-certified organic cotton for the upper, inner lining, laces and embroidered eyelets. By choosing to limit the use of materials, N'go has also ensured that the transportation involved in sourcing the materials is kept to a minimum (less CO2 emissions), and that the pair is recycled at the end of its life (again, less CO2 emissions).

  • Upper made from organic cotton canvas - certified by Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS)
  • Handwoven fabric (Cotton/Polyester)
  • Lining and tongue made from organic cotton canvas - black color - certified by Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS)
  • Removable sockliner - 10mm thickness : 20% textile (recycled PET) + 41% bio sourced Eva (sugar cane) and 39% conventional EVA
  • Outsole sewn with natural Vietnamese rubber (30%) and synthetic (70%) - beige color
  • Laces 100% made from organic cotton - certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS)

Made in Vietnam.

Stitching: Vietnam

Assembly: Vietnam

Finishing: Vietnam

Before using them for the first time, we advise you to protect your N'go with a waterproofing spray suitable for the fabric, and to repeat this operation regularly.

As our shoes are partially hand-woven, they are not suitable for machine washing. This could damage the materials and cause the colors to fade. 

To remove stains, wash by hand with cold water and soap.

Mai Chau

The organic canvas tennis shoe for all your summers.

A little strip that says it all

A little strip that says it all

This woven band is the N'go signature. When you wear these sneakers, you're supporting the skills of independent Vietnamese craftswomen. The motifs in the Mai Chau collection were hand-woven by Thoa, an autonomous and independent Vietnamese craftswoman from the White Thai ethnic minority in Mai Chau, hence the choice of collection name.

Place for organic cotton

Place for organic cotton

We have chosen organic cotton, which is produced without the use of chemicals. It preserves water and soil quality. The cotton in our canvas pair is GOTS-certified.

Comfort above all

Comfort above all

Designed to feel like slippers, our sneakers are padded with soft foam that conforms to the shape of the foot. We've selected a thick insole for optimum comfort, which is also removable so that it can be replaced with an orthopedic insole if required.

Tying the knot

Lace-up closure; the N'go logo and eyelets embroidered directly on the upper add a touch of elegance and minimalism to the shoe.

Produit de qualité. La toile est vraiment costaud. L'ensemble est solide. Bref, cela respire la qualité pour un prix vraiment accessible. La chaussure se fait assez vite au pied sans perdre de sa tenue. La semelle cousue semble qualitative. Bref, ne changez rien, je reviendrai chez vous ! Merci !

Chouette démarche ; mais ces chaussures m'ont paru assez inconfortables (manque de souplesse), du moins pour ma morphologie (pieds plutôt fins).

La taille est bonne, le design appréciable, et la finition semble de bonne qualité

Our sneakers (Saigon, Ho tay and Hue) are made in Vietnam at Dai Luc Dong Nai, a workshop audited and certified to guarantee good working and safety conditions for employees, fair pay and decent working hours. For the Mai Chau model, the sneakers are made at NVS.

Each year, we donate 2% of our turnover to the NGO Sao Bien for the construction of primary and elementary schools in remote, marginalized and often difficult to access areas of Vietnam.

For example, for the purchase of a trainer at 100€, 2€ is donated to the association. 

On average, 1 pair of N'go manufactured and sold is equivalent to 15.6 kg of CO2, or the equivalent of 78 km by car or 8671 km by TGV.

Our company is B Corp and SloWeAre certified.

B Corp is a certification that assesses the overall impact of N'go and goes beyond the raw material supply chain. By answering around 200 questions, we are evaluated on issues such as working conditions and wages, choice of suppliers, open information to our community, environment and corporate governance. It is therefore a global certification of our business management.

SloWeAre is the French label for ethical and responsible fashion. It aims to guarantee to consumers that the audited brand respects a number of ethical principles such as good working conditions for the manufacturers; that the materials used are chosen responsibly; that the brand is committed to safeguarding traditional know-how while guaranteeing cultural non-appropriation etc.

The greenhouse gas footprint is expressed in kilograms of CO₂ equivalent, and was calculated using the methodology and data of ADEME (Agence de la transition écologique).

Source: ADEME's Impact Base version 2.0 and bibliography resources.

Methodology: Simplified life cycle assessment based on ADEME BPX 30-323 technical base.

Scope: entire product lifecycle: materials, fabric manufacture, garments, accessories, transport, packaging, use, end-of-life.

Margin of error: The calculation method is a simplified life-cycle analysis, intended as a decision-making aid by highlighting action levers and major environmental impact items. The average uncertainty rate for a life-cycle analysis is 25%, with uncertainty linked to the data collected and to emission factors (greenhouse gas emissions per kg of process).

Tool: Calculations are made automatically by a platform developed by La Belle Empreinte, for which the greenhouse gas and freshwater eutrophication indicators have been certified by an ADEME delegate.
