Walking barefoot is one of the pleasures of summer, but unless you’re on holiday or a complete hippy with cowrie shells and guitar it’s probably better to wear shoes. Terra Plana have brought out their summer Vivo Barefoot range with a thin sole that helps you walk naturally, as if you aren’t wearing any shoes. Based on the Alexander Technique principle that walking barefoot is best, it sorts your posture and helps your walking technique.

The Yukam slip-on looks a damn sight better than an MBT and there’s no doubt it will make a great summer shoe. Terra Plana shoes are hard-wearing, and this one is bound be your faithful companion while you gad about enjoying the summer sun!

They’re already quite well established, but in case you haven’t heard of Worn Again before they recycle old materials making them into shoes and trainers you would actually wear. Seatbelts, tyres and tweed jackets, anything with life left in it is salvaged and used to make their trainers.

Worn Again’s bicycle shoe combines simple good looks and green credentials; and what’s more they’re reduced down to £35 which is a bargain price. The khaki and black colour scheme will look great with a pair of grey trousers for a pared down, minimal look.

Eco Slipper from Po-Zu

By admin on December 19th, 2007

PozuslipperChristmas is a time of slippers. Not only are they inevitably going to be sitting under the majority of Christmas trees this season, they are also obligatory footwear for Christmas day, when it’s traditional to go for as long as possible without getting dressed. That’s what the festival was originally about, the whole birth of Christ thing only came when the Romans introduce Christianity to these shores. Fact.
Po-zu have created the ultimate slipper (£70). It really is the gift that keeps on giving. The slippers use no harmful chemical glues and are designed to be repairable so should last a while. When they are finally finished, they are 99% biodegradable, which is high by anyone’s estimation. Even the shoe box is degradable and can be planted in the earth where it will sprout seeds.
Ok, so they look a bit like Ugg(ly) boots but as slippers, I think they’re quite stylish.
