Merino wool, rice rubber, algae foam, bamboo and bison fiber are the sustainable components of these eco-friendly recycled cork sneakers from SOLE and United By Blue (UBB). This design is currently being introduced on Kickstarter as "the world's most eco-friendly shoe," as the durable, comfortable and long-lasting model delivers high-performance features in a responsible way.
The SOLE x UBB Jasper Wool Eco Chukka features the new ReCORK recycled cork midsole from SOLE, which is made from recycled wine corks, as well as UBB’s award-winning BisonShield insulation. With its natural, sustainable components, the sneaker boasts hypoallergenic, temperature-regulating, odor-eliminating and antimicrobial features and that promise to outperform their synthetic counterparts.
The shoes can even be comfortably worn without socks, as well as compressed when packing for adventures.
