  A: updated (19/03/2012)

Yes, there are a number of well known brands who are now using Earth friendly materials in the construction of their footwear. Once such company is Nike, who have developed a technology called "Flex Wrap", which reduces the weight of Nike's shoes, alongside being Earth friendly. Sustainable fashion such as Nike's "Flex Wrap" are becoming more commonplace: for a material to be classified as sustainable or Earth friendly, then it needs to adhere to a number of conditions.

  1. Has a low carbon footprint.
  2. Be a natural fiber: such as a plant fiber.
  3. The plant does not use toxic insecticides/pesticides/fertilizers in it's production.
