It is clear that the fashion industry is one of the biggest problems when it comes to environmental problems so it is always heartening to see brands striving to do their part in making the clothes and accessories we wear more environmentally friendly.

The SOLE x United By Blue Jasper Wool Eco Chukka is an immeasurably comfortable, stylish, and robust shoe which has been crafted from recycled cork, bison fibre, merino wool, rice rubber, algae foam, and bamboo to make footwear that isn’t just aesthetically superior but also ensures a much less impactful hit on the environment.
