Sustainable Upcycled Shoelaces

Vessi Footwear Debuted New Sustainable Lace-Packs

— February 4, 2020 — Eco
In honor of Vessi Footwear's launch anniversary, the waterproof knit shoe brand announced the launch of sustainable lace-packs to allow customers to customize their Vessis to their taste.

Each of Vessi's sustainable lace-packs are made from one recycled waterbottle and pack comes with three pairs of laces. They are made from 100 percent post-consumer recycled polyester that has been shredded into pellets and melted down and spun into thread.

These eco-friendly shoelaces are available for both men and women and can be customized according to the style of Vesssi sneakers you wear. Fans of the brand can get their hands on two variants: the 'Neural' with white, grey, and black colorways or the 'Color' with red, green, and blue colorways.
