There’s still plenty of summer left……and your feet want to breathe!
Gotta love the very modern design of the Dopie, from the masters of cool eco-shoes, Terra Plana. Made from recycled EVA and foam rubber, the sandal (?) is one piece of molded material. When you get good at walking in these, you can remove the strap. Sounds like a challenge!
El Naturalista’s slogan is “caminar por la vida” (walking through life). To help you hit the streets with your feet rather than a car, try these creative hippie sandals. Made from recycled cork footbed and recycled rubber scented with tea tree oil.
Splaff Flopps are made from recycled tires and more:
Splaff Flopps started in a garage in 1997 with a tire, a bike tube, and a shoe knife. The vision was to make comfortable, long lasting, fairly priced sandals from recycled materials. Today Splaff Flopps are hand crafted in California with the same integrity. The soles are made with recycled car tires, the straps are made with used bicycle inner tubes, the footbed covering and strap linings are made with hemp fabric, and the mid sole is made with regupol (a cushioned material made from used tires which have been chipped and pressed into mats). Splaff Flopps are produced in a 100% waste free process in which all left over materials are either re-used or recycled.
Simple’s Green Toe line is super-sustainable, and really cute, with fun fabric designs and creative use of materials. I haven’t worn them (yet) but they look super-comfy too! The Toe Foo flip flop (top) is made of jute, a sustainable plant, natural latex, and are held together with non-toxic water-based glues. The GT Jane (bottom) is made of a combination of jute, recycled car tires, and bamboo.
