Footwear developments from WSA: Winter 2020

A regular section in WSA magazine, our Footwear Technology article this issue covers the latest designs and materials used by brands in their autumn-winter 2020 collections and, like every WSA article, is now free to read for a limited time.

Veja’s Condor shoe, made in Brazil, uses new raw materials such as rice waste, banana oil, sugar cane and castor oil and consists of 53% natural raw and recycled material.

Chiruca of Spain has designed a hiking boot made with 100% recycled materials including polyester from plastic bottles and bio materials, and uses rubber shavings from its own waste.

Merrell’s undyed collection reduces the amount of water and energy used to produce the shoes and features recycled content in the laces, mesh and overlays to reduce the amount of virgin materials wherever possible. The outsoles are 30% recycled scrap rubber.
