Ethical Boat Shoe Designs

The Two Degrees Silhouettes Protect Global Endangered Habitats

— June 1, 2018 — Eco
The Two Degrees boat shoe design -- now available on Kickstarter -- is not only comfortable, performance-driven and aesthetically pleasant but is also a product with a realized duty to the environment.

The footwear is structured to be extremely comfortable with seven layers of insole cushioning, unique heel padding to prevent blisters and an ultra-soft hypoallergenic leather upper. The boat shoe is also characterized with an anti-microbial tongue that prevents the surfacing of bad odors and increases breathability.

Yet, the most impressive thing about the Two Degrees boat shoe design is its dedication to sustainable and ethical practices. Each pair in the collection boasts recycled soles and bio-tanned European waste leather. The footwear is hand-stitched and comes in plantable packaging. With every purchase, Two Degrees commits to protecting 1,000 square feet of endangered habitats around the world.
