You know how you can trace the whole body through your feet, like your big toe reaches your glands and all that? Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about what shoes are made of, and have come to the conclusion that a lot of conventional materials have no place in a shoe. That’s why finding these sneakers made me kind of happy.
The sole is made from EcoOrthoLite, which is an environmentally friendly, bio-based formulation that replaces 20% of the petroleum traditionally used in the polyol of polyurethane foams with a bio-oil substitute made from castor beans. This also makes EcoOrthoLite a renewable resource, which reduces the shoe’s carbon footprint.
Sounds pretty great, right?
