Patagonia Rimu shoes

For decades, Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard has preached the gospel of sustainable performance apparel, and his company has led the market with its use of recycled and organic fabrics. This fall, the company greens up footwear, too, rolling out an all-new line of shoes. The trail-, water-, and travel-inspired kicks are made from environmentally friendly ingredients—like natural latex tapped from Brazilian Pará rubber trees, vegetable-tanned leathers, hemp uppers, and soles made from scrap rubber. Our out-of-the-box favorite: the Rimu ($110), a street shoe made with nonleather laces and minimal stitching. patagonia.com
