UGG's dual-gender Neumel Natural offers a fresh new take on the brand's best-selling Neumel chukka style with plant-based materials. The boot boasts lining with TENCEL Lyocell, handcrafted small-batch soles made with LACTAE HEVEA latex sourced from the Hevea rubber tree and a woven upper made from a blend of cotton and hemp.
The Neumel Natural style from UGG comes from its new Plant Power Collection, which specifically addresses carbon emissions with carbon-neutral, plant-based materials. With this collection and future collections, UGG is on a mission to produce even more styles with recycled, repurposed, regenerated and renewable fibers. Beyond this collection, UGG will be using more TENCEL Lyocell fiber, as well as other new materials like UGGplush, which combines UGGpure wool with TENCEL Lyocell for a recycled polyester backing.
