Levi's Creates ‘Reused Jean Shoes' From Vintage Clothing

Levi’s has created a line of shoes made out of old jeans with the ‘Reused Jean Shoe.’

The ‘Reused Jean Shoe’ takes a few pairs of old jeans for each shoe, because each shoe has the iconic Levi jean pieces—including yellow stitching, coin pocket and stud button. A great reimagining of old jeans for Levi’s!

Implications - The rise of environmentalism in mainstream culture has inspired fashion designers to create pieces made from recycled, repurposed or otherwise eco-friendly materials. These shoes, for example, are made from recycled Levi's jeans that would otherwise have been discarded. These eco-chic items appeal to Earth-conscious consumers who prefer products that don't enlarge their carbon footprint.
