At Milan Fashion Week, Bottega Veneta revealed colorful, biodegradable boots during its Autumn/Winter 2020 show. The unisex footwear designs from the luxury fashion house are made from completely biodegradable solids, including materials like sugarcane and coffee. According to Bottega Veneta, “The rubber is made with natural molecules including ones derived from sugarcane and coffee, rather than with synthetic chemicals. That means they will biodegrade within a year once placed underground, or in a controlled environment under specific lighting and humidity conditions alongside the presence of microorganisms.”
The chunky boots created by Bottega Veneta look like a crossover between clogs and rain boots and were sported by models in unusual colors like lime green, orange and peach.
