The limited-edition BOSS collection from Hugo Boss is one that introduces innovative, cruelty-free footwear made from a leather alternative by the name of Piñatex that is derived from pineapple leaf fibers. In addition to being completely animal-free, what makes this material a standout is the fact that it is collected as a harvest by-product, meaning that farmers can sell the pineapple leaves as a source of additional income.

The eco-friendly sneakers also incorporate 100% organic cotton laces, recycled TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) soles, cotton and linen linings and natural, plant-based dyes.

As it becomes increasingly important for consumers to align their values with conscious consumption, a new wave of ethical fashion is emerging, including many alternative leather products made from plant sources.
