The hot days are finally arriving, and so is everyone's favorite season, summer. This year, make the most of this season like never before and choose suitable footwear for every occasion.
The footwear you wear for a beach trip or a stroll has never had such an impact as it does now. Climate change reminds us to be conscious consumers, aiming to reduce our ecological footprint and preserve the planet for future generations.
If we want to continue enjoying summer, we need to change our consumption habits, and opting for environmentally friendly footwear makes a difference.
We suggest eight models to make your summer sustainable.
1 – RC Espadrille Wash Stone
These espadrilles are from RC Shoes, a Portuguese brand that produces vegan men's footwear.
Their composition includes materials of natural and recycled origin, and one of the materials we can find is recycled cotton. This material is made from the reuse of fabric scraps that would otherwise end up in landfills, and by doing so, they are reintroduced into the manufacturing process.
2- mySneaker Rafia Bege
From the exterior to the sole, we find various recycled and natural materials. The lining is composed of bamboo and recycled plastic, and the insole combines Bio-Corn microfiber (which contains over 50% corn-based materials) and foam made from recycled waste and natural resources. On the exterior, we also find plant-based materials, such as a fabric containing 55% organic cotton.
3- Lewis silver
This No Saints model is not just another pair of sneakers, but rather a path to an eco-friendly future!
Its exterior is made of piñatex, a material crafted from pineapple leaf fibers and with a significant advantage: it does not involve the use of any toxic chemicals in its composition.
By wearing these sneakers, you are contributing to a world with less waste and less pollution.
4 - myEspadrille Hemp Grey
What is summer without a pair of espadrilles?
The exterior of this Lazuli model is made of 50% hemp fabric!
Hemp is a material with many qualities, such as easy cultivation, rapid growth, and the fact that it does not require pesticides. These factors make it a sustainable and renewable option.
6- myWedge Twix Natural
These sandals from Lazuli are a great option for your beach trips!
In addition to their natural cotton strap, they also feature a insole made of natural rubber and cork covered with Bio-Corn microfiber. This microfiber combines organic elements like corn and recycled fibers.
The fact that it contains over 50% corn in its composition makes it 30% biodegradable.
7- J-Trainer Grey
The J-Unk models are made with the purpose of lasting for the longest possible time through a selection of high-quality materials!
An interesting fact about this sneaker is that its sole and pull tab are made from recycled hoses damaged in fires, which would otherwise end up in landfills.
8- Vasil Grey
Their sophisticated and practical design makes these unisex sandals a versatile and ideal option for hot days' outings!
Their exterior is made of vegan microfiber nobuk: a sustainable, water-resistant, and cruelty-free material. We also highlight their sole, which is made from recycled tire rubber.
