    Simple Shoes of Santa Barbara, CA makes their shoes from recycled paper, wool and car tires, organic cotton and eco-certified leather.  They also strive to be sustainable in their manufacture and other business practices.

    This article brings up some good points about sustainability – just changing the materials we use to build shoes isn’t enough of a change.  Part of being sustainable is reducing waste, so replacing the worn our parts of shoes rather than just throwing them away is a good move for sustainability.

    Simple shoes look to be leading company in producing sustainable footwear. Another option to note is a model by Brooks, a leading brand in running shoes. Their “green silence” model ($100) is made of recycled materials and the color comes from soy-based inks. Brooks produces some of the most highly-regarded training sneakers, and this green shoe is a great option for runners.
