…It’s Things Thursday: Lakai Recycled Program?

Lakai Recycled Program

If you’d like to go green in style, then check out the Lakai Recycled Program.

By “applying excess shoe materials that would otherwise be thrown away to selected styles each season”, Lakai is turning trash into unique pairs of kicks that are good looking and good for the environment.

In addition to the recycled materials (leather, suede, mesh) the Recycled Program shoes will also feature soles comprised of new gum rubber mixed with regrind rubber waste, reducing new material by up to 50%.

Another benefit of the program is that each shoe will have a unique look that is the result of whatever materials they happened to have around that day, so no two pairs will share the same material and/or color combinations.

Are you ready to go green?

…Balenciaga shoes look like a piece of sports equipment?

Balenciaga Shoes

Balenciaga definitely makes some wild looking shoes, but these snowboard binding looking creations are a step above the rest.

With straps, flaps, mesh and mechanics, they’re not exactly subtle, but if industrial is your style, then these can’t be beat.
