The Kustom Evolution Series: A Shoe With No Footprint

The folks at Kustom like life in the 21st century… the waves, the temperature…and want to keep it this way. Kustom’s Environmental Mission, or E-mission, is to produce footwear that aims to as gentle as it can be on Mother Nature. Products carrying the E-mission tag (view all E-mission styles HERE) are made from natural fabrics like hemp and cotton. Where glues are used they are water based, the laces are made from plastic bottles, and the insole boards, (under your feet) also contain recycled materials. A low-waste production technique pumps out the super-light soles and carbon offsets have been purchased too lessen the footprint of the design and manufacturing process. Is this a shoe with no environmental footprint … perhaps not yet. But Kustom’s ongoing E-mission is to continue to improve and work towards something better.
