Simple TOEst

Hemp boot is coated with beeswax, which is a natural substance that protects against the wet and cold. Fold-over shaft is made of hemp and organic knit. Hemp is known for its insulating properties. Organic cotton fleece lining. Footbed is made of cork and natural latex for a spongy, comfortable feel. The heel wedge is made of bamboo, which is one of the most plentiful and quickest-growing known plants. It is grown in an environmentally-friendly manner without the use of pesticides. The edge of the outsole is made of rubbahyde − a special fabric designed by Simple that is a certified organic cotton with a coating of all-natural latex. This prevents water from getting in and keeps your feet dry and protected. The sole is made from a recycled car tire, continuing the company's effort to create the finest shoes with reusable materials. The water-based glue used to hold the shoe together is a great alternative to the typical use of petroleum glue. This means that we further reduce our dependency on petroleum-based products, and you also benefit from knowing that the hard workers constructing your shoes aren't exposed to strong, unpleasant smells during production. Foot forms are made of recycled paper. Boxes are environmentally friendly, as they are made of post-consumer recycled paper, soy-based printing ink, natural latex and starch-based glue. 14.50" shaft height. 15.50" circumference. 18.00 oz. $120
