the plant shoe

Did you know hundreds of millions of pairs of shoes wind up in landfill every year? That’s an awful lot of plastic- and rubber-based materials that will probably never break down. Enter the Plant Shoe: the first sneaker made entirely of biodegradable, plant-derived bits. Designed in a unisex style and just one natural colour by the clever clogs at Native Shoes, you can chuck them on the compost and walk away with a clear conscience (if you ever tire of padding about in them, that is). Grab 'em for around $286 from over here.

You'll find more awesome bits and bobs inside frankie issue 91. Track down your closest stockist, or subscribe from $10.50.
