When you think of Hush Puppies shoes, the first word that comes to mind is comfort. And rightfully so. We make stylish shoes for women and men that excel at comfort. But we’re also all about looking at the brighter side of life. We love the beauty and color that surrounds us in nature. We’re thinking of gorgeous gardens, radiant rainbows, and the cool creatures on land and in the seas. Like others, we want to help preserve earth’s beauty and resources that we experience. That’s why we’re taking small steps to shift our shoes to a more sustainable future.
We’d like you to meet our more eco-friendly shoe: The Good Shoe. With uppers made from 100% post-consumer plastics and natural algae bloom, it’s a shoe that makes your heart and mind feel good to wear them while your feet enjoy the Hush Puppies comfort you’ve come to expect. The textile upper of The Good Shoe is made of 100% RPET, which is recycled plastics (e.g., recycled water bottles). Similarly, the mesh lining and sock lining contain bioDEWIX™ Dry RPET that continues our focus on recycled materials. Nzym™ pro-biotics within the shoe help keep your shoes smelling fresh. These are a lot of technical terms that explain how the materials and processes that create The Good Shoe help maintain the natural resources our world provides.
Of course, our more eco-friendly sneaker, The Good Shoe, has been engineered for comfort, too. The insole features our Bounce™ technology that provides cushioning and returns energy with every step. The Good Shoe sneaker has a lightweight sole that also incorporates recycled materials. The mesh and sock lining absorb moisture and pull it away from your foot to help keep your feet comfortably dry.
Beyond the extraordinary comfort and more eco-friendly construction, The Good Shoe is a casual sneaker for men and women you’ll put on again and again. These comfortable sneakers will be a great companion on your Saturday errands or your kid’s soccer game. Your daily (or as often as you can!) walk you take for peace, exercise and relish nature’s wonders will be even more relaxing in this sneaker. And that neighborhood barbecue coming up? The Good Shoe will add a confident attitude to your denim skirt. Your friends will be impressed that your comfortable low-top sneaker started with recycled water bottles.
