Unmarked Launches Sustainable Line Premiering With Recycled Archie Boot

Unmarked is going green with its latest bunch of Archie Recycled Project sneakers. The Mexican footwear brand is utilizing recycled leather to create this latest run of the Archie model, a monkey boot style that’s Mexican in its design.

This run of the Archie uses recycled black and cream leather on the upper and insole, with a recycled canvas lining. Even the 360 degree-stitched outsole is a recycled rubber sole that’s replaceable down the line, so these sneaker-boot hybrids will be stomping for many years to come.

We’re all for the recycling and repurposing of materials- especially leather, ’cause that stuff doesn’t biodegrade as fast as say, a lightweight cotton. The fashion industry as a whole desperately needs to incorporate more sustainable practices across the board, and Unmarked has set a standard for sustainable leather sneakers, not to mention the fact that they’re already championing Fair Trade labor practices over in Mexico.

Available for $120 at Unmarked.
