GROUND COVER unveils a boot silhouette entitled the 8 Eye Boot and it is highlighted by its sustainable elements starting at the manufacturing process. The genderless footwear is crafted from waste drawn from commercial pineapple farming to reduce the waste that goes towards methane production.
This environmentally conscious process is also a great revenue stream for local farmers as well. The fiber goes through an upcycled method and the rest of the biomass is used as either biofuel or fertilizer. The brand also unveils a shoulder bag that is construction from flax fiber and is entirely biodegradable. The agricultural waste construction gives the boots’ upper a cracked visual and it is attached to a repairable Goodyear welt. Additional details include the waxed cotton laces that weave through steel aglets.
