The new BIO-D Biodegradable Shoes from Simple Shoes might be fashionably loud, but they are quite polite when it comes to adhering to environmental codes of conduct. It only takes 20 years for the Bio-D shoes to decompose. FYI, that is an extremely far cry from the 1,000 years it takes for most shoe soles to decompose. It's so messed up to know that my old Chucks are going to see the year 3000 and I won’t.

So do your part to save the Earth and buy a pair of the new Simple Shoes, which won’t see a day past 2030.
