By 2024, at least one element of every shoe will be recycled or eco-friendly.
THE GOOD SHOE
We are committed to the use of more sustainable materials in our production and products while still being known for our famous Hush Puppies quality and comfort. Each season, we will release a collection of sustainable and eco-friendly shoes, using and testing new materials. We will look to push boundaries and experiment with the most sustainable and eco-friendly fabrics, components, recycled materials and explore the current unknown.
Using leather in the bulk of our range means that we are creating styles that will be durable and age beautifully. We are now using more tanneries that are part of the Leather Working Group which means we have a greater transparency and peace of mind that they are operating at their most ethically and sustainably. By 2023, our goal is to have at least 50% of our total volume coming from Leather Working Group certified tanneries.
RECYCLED PLASTIC KNIT
Keeping our waste to a bare minimum is key, which is why flyknit is so great. The shoe’s upper is knitted as one piece, exactly to its shape to reduce the mount of excess fabric used in the construction phase .
In 2020, we also introduced our first flyknit made from recycled, post-consumer plastic which we will continue to roll out to more of our range.
